"Assassino" – a song by French singer Amanda Lear released in 1984 by WEA.

Song information[edit]

In 1984 Amanda Lear signed with WEA Italiana (a label of Warner Music Group) for the release of a single-only song "Assassino". This uptempo dance track was written by Amanda Lear and three Italian composers: Cristiano Malgioglio, Mauro Lusini, and Luigi Lopez. It was recorded in Italian and English, both versions having the same title. The Italian-language version was released on the 7" single, with "Stato d'allarme" as the B-side, another non-album Italian song. "Assassino" in English exists only as the 12" extended mix. The song gained considerable popularity in Europe although it didn't chart.

Music video[edit]

The music video was directed by Italian director Mauro Bolognini.[1] It contains scenes with Amanda Lear topless. The English version of the song was used in the video.
