VIA CON ME was originally recorded by PAULO CONTE and has become something of a cult anthem with lyrics roughly translated as "Come away with me...".
The band first performed this as a surprise for their manager at their gig supporting CARAVAN PALACE at London KOKO in November 2012. You can hear the story in the mini documentary about that gig here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id-zyjjOplY

The video features a young Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in the superb romantic comedy ROMAN HOLIDAY (1953) which features this memorable scene of an out of control Vespa in the streets of Rome. If you've not seen the film, make sure you do... it's a true classic.
