GENNARO CASTALDO WATCH: Something to Say-er

The unexpected return of Leo Sayer to the charts (for years, his greatest claim to fame has been being the name of one of the Brighton & Hove bus company vehicles) has caused Gennaro Catsaldo to make a bold prediction:

Gennaro Castaldo of HMV said: "The record will certainly be top three and is selling well. It`s a quiet week for new releases so it could well make number one."

He might be a little cagey about committing himself to a number one, but he's certainly happy to promise a top three position. Bold, bold Gennaro.

The Guardian version of the story paints an even more romantic version of ol' Gennaro, with him singing us his very cover of the song:

"Gennaro Castaldo of HMV said: "The record will certainly be top three and is selling well. It's a quiet week for new releases so it could well make number one."
For those still trying to remember how it goes,this may help: "I feel a thunder in my heart/where it comes from I just don't know/oh no, oh no/there's a storm ragin' deep in my soul/there's a howlin' wind that I just can't control/there's a fire inside me I can't explain/every time you touch me my love falls like rain.""

What an image. What a guy.

You may however have to be either an incurable romantic or drunk to see this.

You can listen to Gennaro in the last 5 minutes of the PM show at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/radio4_aod.shtml?radio4/pm He said, IIRC, it's selling more than anyone else.
