    I don’t know why, but I have a huge respect for the Italians. I just love them! This is such a great classic, only Italians are able to achieve this kind of triumphs.

    I like her very much too, Goga...she's rather an institution in Italy.

    This is another of my favorites:


    And here's a translation of the lyrics:
    The voice of silence

    I wanted to be alone for a while
    to think, as you know,
    and in the silence I heard
    a voice inside myself
    and many things that I thought were
    dead came back to life,
    and the person I loved so much
    returned from the sea of silence
    like tears flooding my eyes,
    and the one I’m missing
    in the sea of silence
    you know I miss you very much
    There are things in silence
    that I never expected.
    …I want a voice…
    and suddenly you
    realize that the silence
    has the appearance of things you lost,
    and I hear you, love,
    I feel you in my heart,
    you’re reclaiming the place that
    you had never lost
    that you hadn’t ever lost
    that you hadn’t ever lost.


    Non si fa il proprio dovere perchè qualcuno ci dica grazie, lo si fa per principio, per se stessi, per la propria dignità. Oriana Fallaci

    Just because I was listening to it today...Elisa and Laura Pausini rock it out at a benefit concert for the Abruzzi...Tra Te e il Mare...Between You and the Sea...

    I'm not afraid of you anymore...All my life is you
    I live from the breaths you leave here
    That I live on while you're away

    I can't be divided between you and the sea anymore
    I can't stay here and wait anymore

    I wanted to live with you in your foreign city
    Alone, but following my instinct
    Alone, but always with you
    I can't be divided between you and the sea anymore
    I'm tired of waiting

    No, my love, no!
    I won't stay!
    Either come back or stay there
    I don't live anymoreN
    I don't dream anymore
    I'm afraid, please help me

    My love, No!
    I don't believe you anymore
    Every time you leave, you swear it's the last time
    I prefer to say good-bye

    I search at night in every star for your reflection
    But non basta...it isn't enough...I've grown

    No, my love no, I can't stay
    Either come back or stay there
    I don't live anymore
    I don't dream anymore
    I'm afraid, help me

    My love, No!
    I don't believe you any longer
    Every time you leave you swear it's the last time

    I prefer to say good-bye
    I can no longer be divided between you and the sea
    I can't wait here any longer

    I see that no one has posted "Caruso" by Lucio Dalla, one of my favorite songs. I prefer to listen to him sing his song, but you can't ever go wrong with Pavarotti, and the English subtitles, which are good, are right on the screen. I know some people like Lara Fabian's version, but I think she overdoes the emotion, when she doesn't need to...

    Italians rule when it comes to movies and music. They just remain unknown because of the language barrier, everybody speaks English. I'm yet to see masters of originality and non-conformism like Fellini and Sergio Leone. Spielberg in comparison is a child.

    Guys, I hope you don't mind, but I am asking the moderators to move the specifically film comments to a thread I've created for Italian cinema. I'd be happy to respond there with some thoughts about this.

    This is a similarly named song. It's called Mi Manchi, by Fausto Leali.

    I infinitely prefer his original version, but again, the only version of the song with on screen English subtitles is the version by Andrea Bocelli.

    This is the Bocelli cover of the song with nice accompaniment by Kenny G.



    I don't mean to sound ungracious about him; he has brought a larger audience to many of these Italian classics, for which I'm grateful.

    This is the original version by Fausto Leali....a much more gut wrenching performance...nice visuals too, although as in most youtube posts for Italian songs, love only seems to exist between the young and the beautiful. Luckily for the rest of us, that isn't true in real life. :)

    This is another Fausto Leali classic...A Chi..To Whom

    These are the lyrics:
    For whom / A chi
    Will I smile / Sorriderò
    If not you / Se non a te
    For whom / A chi
    If you, you aren't here, anymore / Se tu, tu non sei più qui
    By now / Ormai
    It's over / è finita
    it's over, between us / è finita tra di noi
    But maybe a bit of my life / Ma forse un po' della mia vita
    Has remained in your eyes / è rimasta negli occhi tuoi
    With whom else / A chi
    Will I speak / Parlerò
    If not with you / Se non a te
    To whom else / A chi
    Will I tell all my dreams / Racconterò tutti i sogni miei

    You know / Lo sai
    You've done me wrong / M'hai fatto male
    Leaving me alone this way / Lasciandomi così
    But it doesn't matter / Ma non importa
    I'll wait for you / Io ti aspetterò
    I'll wait for you / Io ti aspetterò

    Repeat

    A digitally remastered version of his performance of this song on RAI appeared within the last year on youtube: I love his voice. [/VIDEO]

    This song was also part of the score for the sixties portion of one of my favorite Italian movies, La meglio gioventù...The Best of Youth...This is the trailer. The film is available with English subtitles, but this trailer was produced in France.

    I quite like this modern song...I just think that pouf in his hair distracts from the music (and his beautiful face for that matter...what was he thinking?!)

    L'Essenziale...The Essential Thing-Marco Mengoni

    Heroes assert
    “even if the game is difficult,
    it’s to be played!”
    Good for them then
    if they mistake harm for good.
    It happens also to us
    we make war and then yearn for peace
    and in my silence
    I take away each one of your sorrows.
    In order to appreciate what
    I haven’t before known how to choose.

    While the world falls to pieces
    I put together new spaces
    and desires that
    belong also to you
    because you’ve always been to me
    what’s essential.

    I will not accept
    another mistake in judgment
    love is capable of
    hiding itself behind loving words
    that I spoke aloud before when
    they were empty and stupid.

    While the world falls to pieces
    I put together new spaces
    and new desires that
    belong also to you
    While the world falls to pieces
    I move away from the excess
    and from the bad habits,
    I’ll return to the origin
    I return to you because you are for me
    what’s essential.

    Marco Mengoni participated and placed top 10 with this song in the Eurofestival last year (I think). Very nice song.

    one of my favourites is Giuseppe Povia - Il bambini fanno ooh

    I remember that WC well. I also remember the 2006 WC, one game in particular.

    I've always been of two minds about this song. I like the lyrics very much; I've just always thought there's a disconnect between them and the...I don't know...tone of the music?
    Cerco l’estate tutto l’anno I look for summer all year long
    e all’improvviso eccola qua. And all of a sudden, here it is.
    Lei é partita per le spiagge She has left for the beaches,
    e sono solo quassu’ in citta’ , And I’m alone up here in the city.
    sento fischiare sopra i tetti I hear whistling above the roofs...
    un aeroplano che se ne va. a plane that’s leaving.
    Refrain
    Azzurro,il pomeriggio é troppo azzurro Blue, the afternoon is too blue
    e lungo per me. And long for me.
    Mi accorgo I realize
    di non avere piu’ risorse, That I have no more resources
    e allora so now
    io quasi quasi prendo il treno I could almost take the train
    e vengo, vengo da te, And come, come to you
    ma il treno dei desideri But the train of our desires
    nei miei pensieri all’incontrario va. In my thoughts runs backwards.
    Sembra quand’ero all’oratorio, It’s like when I was at the oratorio
    con tanto sole, tanti anni fa. With so much sun, so many years ago.
    Quelle domeniche da solo Those Sundays alone
    in un cortile, a passeggiar… Walking around in a courtyard
    ora mi annoio piu’ di allora, Nowadays I get more bored than I did then
    Not even a priest to chat with.
    I look for a bit of Africa in the garden
    Between the oleander and the baobab
    As I did when I was a kid
    But there are people here, I can’t do that anymore
    They’re watering your roses
    But there’s no lion

    Anyway, here's a version by the "Azzurri" of yesteryear...

    I like that song its just fun to "sing" along even if you have no clue what it is your singing (in the Hosen/90 tradition) good memories but many are lost if you know.....; I bet you liked 2006 but that wont happen this time shouldnt even have happened last time but such is football;
    Memorable moments from Italy 90 was the Jugo-Klatsche (all three halfs) in Milano and than an entire Italian city (>70.000 cap stadium) supporting Argentina and not their own national team; reason was obvious however;

    If people choke, they choke...achievement in sports, like many other things in life, is as much a question of psychology as of skill and training and strategy. Also, some people don't seem to get it that insulting and disrespecting one's opponents can motivate those opponents to achievements that might not have been predicted. It's all Psych 101 and people skills 101. One can sabotage oneself.

    However, this thread is about music, not sports. Perhaps we could keep on topic?

    Mina with grande grande grande released in 1973, and later a cover version by Shirley Bassey (Never Never Never) in the UK and remains one of her most known records.
