Vitamin C - Smile

Perle Dimenticabili tira fuori pezzi deprecabili e assurdi, trovati conservati, per strani motivi, nel mio personale etere.

Vitamin C - Smile

Canzone estiva tipica del festivalbar e lei bella ragazzuola pel di carota! Cos'altro chiedere allo showbiz anni 90? 🙂
Ah poi dopo quei due tre anni da famosa cantante (?) si ributtò sul cinema ma non ebbe successo neanche li...
