Fior di Latte by Phoenix

Album: Ti AmoReleased: 2017
  • Here, Thomas Mars rapturously compares a love interest to an Italian ice cream.

    Fior di latte, fior di latte
    Throw your weight around behind me
    Fior di latte, fior di latte
    Don't think about it, trigger me happy

    Phoenix explained to NPR: "[Fior Di Latte] is a song about desire, fior di latte being the most erotic ice cream the Italian could imagine."
  • Many of the songs on Ti Amo feature a romanticized vision of Italy. Speaking with MTV News, Thomas Mars recalled clicking through old Italian pop hits and "pre-Berlusconi–era TV shows" on YouTube for inspiration when writing the record: "It's a goldmine," he said. "Sometimes the music is awful, but you just love the logo in the back. Or sometimes you're surprised at how deep the music is, and the twist in the lyrics. And because the references are so far [off] in time and space, you don't feel like you're stealing."
