"Creativity. The key to everything is listening. Listening to yourself, others and the world around us. To be poets just answer the phone, the phone that rings inside, and never get busy"
This is my remix for Jovanotti, and it's a cross between a caress on a cheek and a fist in the face. Pump up the volume until your head explodes!
