One of two songs in this Countdown that is based on an Italian song – this time, Come Back to Sorrento. I can remember playing this song in my high school orchestra and wondering why it was called “Come Back to Sorrento” when clearly it was Surrender!
It was only later on that I found out the origin of the tune! Apart from it being a good song, it brings back some memories of torturing my neighbours with me practising that trumpet solo.
