This a funny song/animated video with Mina e Celentano, I believe is a mix of Italian and a dialect from Foggia.
“Che t'aggia di?”

Awwwww man, did you really have to be that harsh?

Yes, it does. This happens to me a lot if I'm using a playlist type of post on youtube. Some play and some say it's blocked. Then if I search for the song individually it almost always works. I don't know why it happens, but it does. Dumb.

Songs being blocked stems from the artist not wanting his/her material freely available on YouTube, which would give incentive to purchase the album. YouTube seriously needs to fix this issue and I have no idea why they missed this.

An song by the arbereshe/albanians of Italy. It is not sung in italian, but you can feel the italian influence when listening to the instruments.

I don't understand all of it, but most of it. Mina did pretty well, I think. Amazing how they got his animated character to look so much like him. Very funny.

I have to say this is more my style, though. :smile:

Love it and him. I've posted a lot of music by him and Giorgia and Elisa and Gianna Nannini, and Laura Pausini, among others, upthread. I've also posted some Noemi, and Fiorella Mannoia, and even some Jovanotti. I told you, I keep up as much as I can, but I only post the things I like. Oh, I also like Biagio Antonacci, and Lucio Dalla, and Baglioni, and Umberto Tozzi and Rino Gaetano and DeGregori and on and on. They're all on this thread.

As to your prior post, what indeed would Italian music be without Emilians and Tuscans???

What indeed, also, without Ligurians, although they haven't been very active lately. I've posted a lot of Fabrizio De Andre, who I listen to all the time, and some Ivano Fossati...

First one I've heard before...other than a sentence or two I have no idea what they're talking about. I have to look up a translation into Italian. I get the "drift", though.

I was obsessed with this song for a long time.

It's a beautiful song, Zanatis; I do indeed feel it.

Yet, I was an adult, and in the U.S. before I knew anything about that kind of music.

This is the wrong thread for folk music, but this is "our" regional music...

All songs have the ability to transmit emotions of all kinds, such as euphoria, adrenaline, aggression, adventure, melancholy, etc., but they all last very shortly and disappear usually once you’re done listening. But it’s such songs like the one you posted that affect us the most (IMO) and transmit happiness, peace, and the cozy feeling of being home and enjoying time with the beloved ones.

Anna Identici...When I Fall In Love

When I fall in love

They say that I can not
find a flower
and I do not have anything
to give.
They say that there is a nail
in my heart
and that is why it
can not beat.
But my boyfriend
knows that it is not true,
My boyfriend knows
that when
When I fall in love
I do all the good possible
for he who is in love with me,
and there is no one
who can change me,
who can get me away from him.


When I fall in love
I do all the good possible
for him who is in love with me,
and there is no one
who can change me,
who can get me away from him.


And the love that
comes to life
and my life
I give the love to him
Who tells me to live
another day
I'll reply that...
that...
when...

Laura Pausini..."My biggest mistake"

"You knowYou've gotten me in trouble
My eyes are islands
Where you never travel
You're good
Maybe better than me
At deceiving me without a mask
And me at trusting you
It lasted just a flash
I was deceived by us
But with woman's intuition
Today I know what (who) you are


A game I never win
My biggest mistake
What anger you cause me!
The trap in my days
Yes, my biggest mistake
But that I'd make again


Tell me, Tell me how you are
You seem like a depressed angel
That never flies
I swear that I would marry you
But there's a devil hidden in the tears
That you give me


It lasted just a flash
I was deceived by us
But it's not right to be dramatic about it
Since I know who you are


A game I never win
My biggest mistake
What anger you cause me!
The emptiness beneath my steps
You are my biggest mistake
But that I would make again
I contradict myself
With my kisses but that's how it is
You put out the lights and it continues
I'm lost for you"

True story: one afternoon at university soon after she got there my daughter was playing her and a South American exchange student came running in and said, I love Laura, I didn't know Americans listened to her! I think she's more popular in Latin America than in Italy even. I don't know how many Latin Grammys she's gotten.

Fabulous. It's truly amazing how loved this song is around the world.

Coming from where I do there isn't a gathering of any sort where this isn't sung, but I still get chills.

One of my favorite renditions is from this old priest from Genova who sings it at the end of Mass and also pulls out the red scarf he was wearing underneath his cassock. :)

We haven't forgotten.

"Wind of Passion": Giorgia and Pino Daniele

"The memory of a loveGoes through my mind
And there's no reason
When we search for what's left
It's like a wind of passion
Or a red rose
The memory of a love
Changes us and doesn't leave us


If I had had at least an opportunity
Now that I've found the right words
But the memory of a love
Keeps on coming through my mind


The memory of a love
Leaves salt in mouth
And arrives straight to heart
Without even warning
It's a love letter
It's the song of the sea
The memory of a love
Speaks to us and doesn't go away


If I had had at least an opportunity
Now that I've found the right words
But the memory of a love
Keeps on coming through my mind"

"Angela, Angela" by Luigi Tenco.

I've been on a Luigi Tenco binge. I love gorgeous, tortured men singing of their lost love and woes, what can I tell you? :)

Couldn't ignore this one since this is what most of my Italian family calls me!

Moral of the story: don't play with love to enjoy your sense of power over someone else.

"Angela, Angela, my angel,
I didn’t think that this night would truly be a good-bye
Angela, believe me I didn’t want it
Angela, Angela, my angel
When I told you I wanted to go
I just wanted to see you cry
Because I like watching you suffer
I wanted to make you cry
To see your tears
Feeling that your heart is in my hands..
Angela, Angela, my angel
But tonight instead of crying,
You look at my face in a strange way.
As if it were already far away
I beg you, Angela, no, don’t leave me
You can’t leave me down here all alone
It’s impossible: it’s all too sudden
I can lose you, lose everything
Angela, Angela, my angel,
I didn’t think that this night would truly be good-bye
Angela, believe me I didn’t want it
Repeat and repeat:
Angela, Angela, my angel.

This is a nice one because you can see the audience reaction. Plus, it's beautiful: Vedrai, Vedrai byLuigi Tenco

"When I return home in the eveningI barely can even talk
please don't look at me with that tenderness
as if I were a disappointing child
Yes, I know. This surely is not the life
that you dreamed one day the two of us we'd share


You'll see, you'll see,
You'll see that it will change
maybe it won't be tomorrow
but one day it will all change


You'll see, you'll see,
I am not finished yet
I can't tell you how or when
but one day it will all change


I'd rather see you crying,
accusing me of failing you
then see you always react so tenderly
so accepting of what little I give you
when I think of you, I despair
because I just can't give you anymore.


You'll see, you'll see,
You'll see that it will change
maybe it won't be tomorrow
but one day it will all change


You'll see, you'll see,
I am not finished yet
I can't tell you how or when
but one fine day it will all change

I so love this song: Ornella Vanoni-L'Appuntamento (The Date)

"https://lyricstranslate.com/en/l%E2%80%99appuntamento-date.html-0#songtranslation

I was wrong so many times by now,
I already know
that almost certainly today
I am wrong about you


but what difference can one more time make
in this life of mine..
Accepting this odd date,
it was insanity! (some folly)


I am sad among the people
passing by
but the wistful feeling (nostalgia) of seeing you again
is stronger than the tears


This sun lights up on my face
a sign of hope
I am waiting and suddenly
I will see you appear yonder (in the distance)


My love be here soon (hurry up),
I can't take it (resist)
if you don't come, I don't exist
I don't exist , I don't exist ...


The weather has changed, and it is raining
but I stay and wait (keep on waiting)
I am not concerned (don't care) about what the world will think [of me]
I don't wanna go.


I look within myself and wonder
but I feel nothing (hear nothing?)
I am just some remains of hope
lost among people


My love it's already late
and I can't take it (resist)
if you don't come, I don't exist
I don't exist , I don't exist ...


Lights, cars, shop windows, roads
they all confuse into my mind
my shadow got tired of following me
the day slowly dies


All that's left is to go back to my house
to my sad life
This life I wanted to give to you
you crumbled it between your fingers


My love forgive me but I can't take it...
Now forever, I don't exist

io nun ve canto a voce piena

I don't sing to you with all my voice

‘cause Al Bano è paesano mio.

Va, pensiero sull'ali dorate
Va, ti posa sui clivi, sui colli,
Ove olezzano trepide e molli
L'aure dolci del suolo natal!
Del Giordano le rive saluta,
Di Sionne le torri atterrate...
Oh, mia patria sì bella e perduta!
Oh, membranza sì cara e fatal!
Arpa d'or dei fatidici vati
Perchà© muta dal salice pendi?
Le memorie nel petto raccendi,
Ci favella del tempo che fu!
O simile di Solima ai fati
Traggi un suono di crudo lamento,
O t'ispiri il Signore un concento
Che ne infonda al patire virtù!
Che ne infonda al patire
Al patire virtù,
Che ne infonda al patire
Al patire virtù!
Al patire virtù!
