I've come to the conclusion that some things are better elsewhere in the world - like MTV here in Italy. We normally don't spend much time watching TV (outside of episodes of He-Man or Legends of the Hidden Temple on youtube), but we have a few things on Italian TV that we've come to know and love: A few game shows, American movies dubbed over in Italian but most of all: MTV the way it was meant to be - purely music videos.Just sayin' - it is.
Here in Castle Grayskull, we often start our day with some catchy tunes by turning on MTV as we get ready. I have to say that the songs on repeat here are much better than those typically getting a ton of repetition in the States. They are mostly songs in English, but a few are in Italian. Most tend to be upbeat electronic/dance or alternative genres.
