  • Lyrics
  • "Mondo Sinistro" has been described as a comical throwaway. Translated from Italian it means literally "I peel left"; whether or not this is what Al intended, the song is indeed the joker in the pack from this typically under-rated album.
    Runnning to three minutes four seconds, it was published 1980 copyright Frabjous/Approximate Music. Overtly commercial, it was released as single on the RCA label backed by "Merlin's Time". >>

  • Robert from Erlanger, KyI was under the misconception that 'Mondo Sinistro' meant: Sinister World.
  • Papercop from Rome, ItalyActually a literal translation from italian of "mondo sinistro" would be something like "grim world", which kind of makes more sense...
