Enzo Jannacci e Dario Fo - Ho visto un re

Enzo Jannacci and Dario Fo's Ho visto un re [wikipedia]

Ho visto un re is a satire against power. The narrative voice is that of some peasants who sing and point out that all powerful (the King, the Emperor, the Bishop, the Cardinal, the rich people) as they are touched their interests, even minimally, they start to cry. In contrast, the peasants, even when they are deprived of essential things, have to laugh because their «cry hurt the king it hurts the rich people and the Cardinal, they become sad if we cry».

It was born as a sham traditional folk song, and very quickly became a real one.

Fabrizio de André - Se ti tagliassero a pezzetti

De André's love song to anarchism: Se ti tagliassero a pezzetti

Looking for lyrics, there's a line that says "signora libertà signorina fantasia". De André actually sings "signora libertà signorina anarchia".

There's a long history of censorship in Italian music, even in very popular songs.

Franco Battiato - Voglio vederti danzare

Franco Battiato's Voglio vederti danzare

He is and has been for decades one of the most popular pop singer-songwriters in Italy. His unique sound, song-crafting and especially his lyrics, often containing philosophical, religious, and culturally exotic references, as well as tackling or painting universal themes about the human condition - unusual subjects for pop songs - earned him a unique spot on Italy's music scene, and the nickname of "Il Maestro" ("The Master" or "The Teacher").
