    Yes, it is beautiful, Goga. I think this one is beautiful too, but sad not joyous. The translation into English is on the screen for those who don't understand Italian. Fwiw, I don't take it to be a song about the physical death of a beloved woman, but about the death of love.

    All other versions pale by comparison, "Perdere L'amore", To Lose Love, Massimo Ranieri:

    English translation:

    And now go away
    I want to be alone
    with the sadness
    flying in its own sky

    I never asked who you were
    why did you choose me
    me, who until yesterday
    thought I was a king

    To lose love
    when night comes
    when the hair
    gets a silver shade
    you risk going mad
    your heart can break

    To lose a woman
    and want to die
    let me shout
    and renounce the sky
    throwing stones at
    all my dreams still flying
    I'll make them fall one by one
    I'll break the wings of destiny
    and I'll have you near again

    Anyway, I understand
    and I admit I made mistakes
    I was making the choices for you
    who knows what I thought I was doing
    and now what's left
    of all the time we spent together
    is a very lonely man
    who still loves you

    To lose love
    when night comes
    when on your face
    there's a wrinkle that wasn't there before
    you try to reason
    pretend to be indifferent
    untill you realize
    that it's no use
    and you'd like to scream
    and suffocate the sky
    hit your head
    against the wall a thousand times
    breathe in her scent from the pillow
    blame destiny
    for not having you near

    To lose love
    damned night
    and you pick up the pieces
    of an imaginary life
    you think that tomorrow
    is a new day
    but you keep on repeating: "I wasn't expecting this!"
    "I wasn't expecting this!"

    This is a Neapolitan song, "Cu'mme", or "With me" by Mia Martini and Roberto Murolo.

    It's a sad topic, but beautifully expressed.
    With me



    Come down with me
    find in the depths of the sea
    all things that here will never be
    Come on with me
    and begin to take in
    how futile is suffering

    Look at this sea here
    drenching us with fear
    it’s only after to teach something

    Ah! How can it be
    to keep tormenting our soul that wants to spree
    if you don’t get to the seabed
    you will never know
    No! How can it be
    to take away merely
    whatever that’s in thee
    and dare to leave your heart
    lonely amid the street ah
    Take off with me
    and start singing a prayer
    along the notes in the air
    Don’t open an eye
    just continue to fly
    while the wind’s carrying
    us to the sky
    To where there are
    the most beautiful words
    by the hand they’ll lead us high
    Ah! How can it be
    to keep tormenting our soul that wants to spree
    if you don’t get to the seabed
    you will never know
    No! How can it be
    to take away merely
    whatever that’s in thee
    and dare to leave your heart
    lonely amid the street ah


    Here is the song:

    I like it very much and the rhythm besides the expressive lyrics. I just come back from Naples, been for the day to accompany a friend to buy some of the famous Neapolitan crib figures. Streets were so packed could hardly walk trough. Very unusual town is Naples. Had a an unforgettable time touring some places to the south, Lecce, Ostundi, and hosted by a friend who lives in a village on the mountains around Basilicata, with the most beautiful sunrise one can possibly get over the dolomites. :)

    Unusual is a good word. :) I've never actually stayed in Napoli. We stay on the Costa Amalfitana, often in Sorrento, because it's centrally located, although one magical stay was in Ravello. If there's a heaven on earth Ravello is in the running for it, in my opinion.

    Napoli is certainly the place for presepi. As I'm sure you know, since the days of St. Francis they've been a very important part of Christmas. When I was a little girl, my parents bought a set with about two dozen pieces, the characters all recognizably Italian peasants, down to the clothing and faces, an exposition on Italian rural life rather than the Palestine of 2000 years ago. It was my responsibility to set it up, and I took it very seriously, creating hills and valleys covered with grass and moss, sometimes sprinkled with snow, putting the infant Jesus in his crib only on Christmas Day. As an adult I bought some pieces in Napoli of more artistic merit, but they don't mean anywhere as much to me as that old, battered set.

    It's figurines like this that I adore:


    During the Holiday Season, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City always hosts their "Angel Tree and Baroque Neapolitan Creche", which is a must for any trip to the city during that time.



    This Italian American cultural presentation has close up pictures of many of the figurines. The pieces and the pictures are glorious.
    http://magnagrece.blogspot.com/2014/...m-of-arts.html

    A local church that has a lot of Italian American congregants and that even still has a weekly Mass in Italian has collected dozens of large size figurines bought in Napoli, larger than those at the Met, and more of them. Their display has people coming for miles to see it.

    They are indeed famous and renowned for their expression and finesse. My best friend is well into them and its not just the immediate look but the age and the original completeness of the figurines. He was happy with what he bought :). My father always used to build a presepjo like you with special type of stone we call gargazza. Cribs are still very popular locally with many being mechanized and open for public viewing during the Christmas period in nearly all districts.

    Did you know it was originally a Gaelic song? I didn't, not originally.

    I hope you don't mind, Caro Maleth: :)

    The Dark Haired Lady and the Hunter



    I will not climb the hill
    and I will not catch my prey,
    my voice I have lost
    and I can sleep no more...
    The black-haired lady
    comes always to my mind
    and I know I'll not capture
    my prey.

    I was not with her on the mountain
    when the wind called to us,
    I was not with her in the woods,
    in the hidden darkness...
    The black-haired lady
    comes always to my mind
    and I know I'll not capture
    my prey.

    I would love you, my beautiful lady,
    I would marry you, if God wills,
    with you I'll depart for faraway Holland...
    You have taken my heart and my prey
    will I lose.

    I have no more luck,
    and I cannot find sleep,
    my heart is troubled,
    and soon I'll be grey...
    The black-haired lady
    comes always to my mind
    and I know I'll not capture
    my prey.

    You are always in my mind
    and against all will I have you
    and then with you will I travel,
    crossing the sea.

    A Sicilian dialect song. I was reminded of it by a poster on anthrogenica. Apparently said poster is unaware that both Italian and Ashkenazi music of the 19th and 20th century, and indeed the music of many European countries, was influenced by music forms created in Eastern Europe, to wit, Polkas and Mazurkas. I'm afraid there is no particular similarity between Ashkenazi music and southern Italian/Sicilian music, but rather similar influences influenced both of them.

    A modern Italian song based on the tango, and no, it's not because there was a mass migration of Argentinians to Italy. :) Italy has adopted many "foreign" forms of music and incorporated them into its own canon, including the waltz, the mazurka, the polka, and later, the tango.

    This is the translation:

    He, he's crazy about her
    and so he can't find any peace anymore
    He, he's a game for her, a toy
    She's so good, but more cunning than a gypsy
    He, he's crazy about her
    So young, but at heart an actress

    She's like salt, she hurts but also brings
    that something extra when there's little taste
    Love and salt of a life that has meaning
    Only when the pleasure is nice and slow

    He he he, he's made of her
    When he pretends that one day he'll be able to do without her
    He he he, he's full of her
    In his eyes yellow fields of grain in which they lose themselves

    She's like salt, she hurts but also brings
    that something extra when there's little taste
    Love and salt of a life that has meaning
    Only when the pleasure is nice and slow

    She's like salt, she hurts but brings
    that something extra when there's little taste
    Love and salt of a life.."

    This is the video with the most PG13 visuals I could find that still had good audio quality:

    Very nice. Its a style that was very popular locally, but then like many other Sicilian influences.

    I love it too, for its sweet melancholy...

    "fiumi azzurri e colline e praterie
    dove corrono dolcissime le mie malinconie
    l' universo trova spazio dentro me
    ma il coraggio di vivere quello ancora non c'è."

    From the gardens of March to the flowers of April...from melancholy to still searing although quiet heartbreak..."Ballad of Lost Love"-Fabrizio de Andre. I have to be in a good place to even listen to this. (The English translation is on screen for non Italian speakers and they're good.)

    I like the style very much. Never heard of Fabrizio de Andre. I will check out some more of his songs :)

    His style actually varied quite a bit over the years and depending on the subject matter. It's part of what makes him great. This one, "Winter", you might like although it has a more jazzy, bluesy sound. I love the lyrics, as I love all his lyrics...one of our greatest ever singer-songwriters.

    There are about five translations floating around on the internet for this song as we all try to get it right. This is the best I've seen; better than mine, I have to admit. :) The translator doesn't do a word for word translation, as I'm sure you'll see, but he captures the poetry of it. The visuals are quite lovely too.

    "The fog is rising on snowy mounds,
    as does a cypress on burial grounds;
    a hazy-looking, tall church belfry
    marks out the border between earth and sky.


    But you are leaving, why don’t you stay:
    the snow’ll be gone in just one day,
    past happiness will bloom once more
    as the warm winds of Summer soar.


    And even light looks dead and glum
    in the faint shadow of times to come,
    where even dawn is growing dull
    and every face is a waxen skull.


    But you are leaving, why don’t you stay:
    you’ll see, the snow will die away,
    we’ll love once more, we won’t be sour,
    in the blithe season of the mayflower.


    The weary land beneath the snow
    is sleeping quietly in its deep woe,
    and Winter reaps toil and travail
    since ancient times of weep and wail.


    But you who linger, why are you staying?
    Another Winter will soon be preying,
    more snow will fall to console this field,
    to a frosty Winter you can’t but yield

    You are right he does change styles. Very interesting

    A beautiful song from Francesco DeGregori: "BelAmore", Beautiful Love. It has an old folk song quality and the visuals of beautiful women are lovely.

    "Bellamore Bellamore do not leave me,
    Bellamore Bellamore do not forget me.
    Rose of Spring, island in the sea,
    lamp in the evening, Polar Star.
    Bellamore Bellamore, let me watch you,
    in the moon and in the sun let me watch you.
    Crumbs on the snow, fireflies in the glass,
    Bellamore Bellamore, let me see you.
    Come and sit here, come and rest here,
    on this chair shaped like a flower.
    This coming night will not give pain,
    This night will pass without hurting you.
    This night will pass, or we will let it to pass.
    Bellamore Bellamore, do not go away.
    You know the tears and how handle them.
    Bellamore Bellamore do not leave me,
    You do not believe in miracles, but you make them.
    Bellamore Bellamore let me sing you,
    in the rain and wind, let me sing you.
    Paradise and poison, sugar and salt,
    Bellamore Bellamore, let me consume you.
    Come here and cover, came here and heat,
    on this chair shaped like a flower.
    This coming time will not give pain,
    This time will pass without harming us.
    This time will pass and we or we will let it to pass."

    Beautiful ballad by songwriter Gigi Restagno from Turin, performed by two members of the band Subsonica from Turin, who were friends with him (Restagno died 20 years ago).
    Nullum magnum ingenium mixtura dementiae fuit.

    It's a beautiful song in any language. Of course, I love it, being a queen of nostalgia.:) It always makes me emotional.

    @Mars,
    I hadn't heard that song before...very nice.

    Yes, it's not a popular song, because Restagno died just before releasing a real album. He was very popular as an "alternative" chansonnier in the mid 90s Turin (and neighboring areas) only. A very unlucky guy.
