Italian Domenico Modugno had a massive hit in 1958 with "Volare" and now had a new number out on Fonit SP 30391 called "Resta Cu Mme," the B-side of which was "Io." Modugno was born in Polignano a Mare in Italy on 9 January, 1928. An aspiring actor, Modugno's career turned towards singing when he took part in and won the 1958 San Remo Music Festival with his own song, "Nel Biu Dipinto Di Blu," better known as "Volare." Modugno continued to be active in both acting and singing throughout the 1960s and 1970s. In the latter part of the 1980s he moved into politics and became a representative for Turin of the Italian Radical party. Domenic Modugno died in August 1994.
The original Italian title , "Io," was printed on the label of the Elvis's UK single release of "Ask Me," between brackets after the English title. This caused some confusion to Albert Hand, then editor of Elvis Monthly, who wondered what the number 10 meant! Elvis recorded the number twice: the May 27th version was not released until 1991; the 1964 single version was recorded on January 12, 1964.
