THE songs of Julio Iglesias were used to torture prisoners under General Pinochet’s Chilean dictatorship, it has been revealed.
Hits including Starry Night and El Amor were included on a special ‘torture soundtrack’, which also featured songs by The Beatles’ George Harrison, according to researchers at Manchester University.
The tracks would be played at intensely high volumes for days on end, with the otherwise popular songs being used to inflict psychological and physical damage on prisoners.
