    I never understood why (maybe is it recalling "Oh Happy Day?"), but this song has always inspired me so much Christmas

    I really like it because it has that Black Gospel sound which I love.

    One of my good friends is Jamaican, and she was at the church when my children had their first Holy Communion. She was like, no offense, but you need better music! :) I would have argued, but they weren't playing Latin music, but the "modern U.S. Catholic songs", which are, well, not as good.

    She turned me on to this restaurant in Harlem where you can go to have breakfast on a Sunday morning and listen to live Gospel singing. Great, both the food and the music.

    Speaking of...

    Every song on the album from Robert Duvall's movie "The Apostle" is great. This is just one. This is the kind of "church" music my friend meant. If this doesn't get you up off your feet you don't have a pulse! :)




    Elvis was a very good gospel singer too:

    A sincere wish that you may all have a healthy and happy and love filled new year, everyone.

    My favorite New Year's song...

    Should old friends be forgotten, and times long ago?
    No, we'll drink a cup of kindness yet for old times sake.

    may the moon softly restore you by night,

    may the rain wash away your worries,

    may the breeze blow new strength into your being,

    may you walk gently thorugh the world and know it's beauty all the days of your life.”

    The Gigi did Alessio rendition reminds me so much of Santana songs. What stance are you talking about Angela?

    While I was poking around Youtube I ran across Vicky Leandros & Helena Paparizou's rendition of Vicky Leandros's Eurovision 1972 winner.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiWPaEeJOro

    Her voice sounds better in 2013 than 1972

    Me too! And I really like Santana. :)

    I was thinking of Adela's husband in Malandrino when his back is to the wall, both hands in his pockets, or later, one hand on his belt, head turned at a cocky angle, legs slightly flexed as if just ready to walk. It's a way of walking, too, with a spring in the step.,

    I showed someone on the Board, an Italian, a picture of my husband with one hand on the fireplace mantel and one in his pocket, all dressed up in a tux ready to go out, and he said something to the effect that he looked like he never left Italy, and particularly Southern Italy. It's a strange thing how really Southern Italian he is down to his bones, and he can't speak a word of the language, and doesn't even think of himself that way.

    I don't think it's just Italian. :) I've seen it in Greeks too. Maybe it's a Mediterranean thing; too much of their mothers telling them they're God's gift to the earth, not just women. :)

    Jimmy Caan got it down pat in The Godfather, and Andy Garcia too.

    Translation of the song...sounds SO much better in Italian.


    With his curly hair,
    a brigand's eyes and sunshine in his face.
    Every girl melts upon seeing him pass
    with the cigarette in his mouth
    a hand in his pocket
    and he goes on, cocky, all around the city


    The saracen, the saracen
    is a handsome lad
    The saracen, the saracen
    makes all the girls sigh
    he has a beautiful face and a good heart,
    he knows how to make love.
    He’s a rascal, he’s a seducer
    if you look at him you fall in love.
    And a blond poisoned herself
    and a brunette killed herself.
    Is he poison or a disaster?
    What is he doing to women?
    The saracen, the saracen
    is a handsome lad
    he has a beautiful face and a good heart,
    all the girls fall in love


    But a redhead, the other night
    with a kiss and an apology
    has stolen your heart and soul;
    saracen you're not yourself any longer


    The saracen, the saracen
    is a handsome lad
    The saracen, the saracen
    all the girls fall in love

    I don't think it's just Italian. :) I've seen it in Greeks too. Maybe it's a Mediterranean thing; too much of their mothers telling them they're God's gift to the earth, not just women. :)

    Jimmy Caan got it down pat in The Godfather, and Andy Garcia too.

    Translation of the song...sounds SO much better in Italian.


    With his curly hair,
    a brigand's eyes and sunshine in his face.
    Every girl melts upon seeing him pass
    with the cigarette in his mouth
    a hand in his pocket
    and he goes on, cocky, all around the city


    The saracen, the saracen
    is a handsome lad
    The saracen, the saracen
    makes all the girls sigh
    he has a beautiful face and a good heart,
    he knows how to make love.
    He’s a rascal, he’s a seducer
    if you look at him you fall in love.
    And a blond poisoned herself
    and a brunette killed herself.
    Is he poison or a disaster?
    What is he doing to women?
    The saracen, the saracen
    is a handsome lad
    he has a beautiful face and a good heart,
    all the girls fall in love


    But a redhead, the other night
    with a kiss and an apology
    has stolen your heart and soul;
    saracen you're not yourself any longer


    The saracen, the saracen
    is a handsome lad
    The saracen, the saracen
    all the girls fall in love










    I thought that's the stance you meant, it's in the blood, youthful arrogance of a good-looking guy from the Med. I have seen it in Spain also.

    Talking about mothers telling their sons that they are god's gift to women, there is a joke about that.

    I can prove that Jesus Christ was Greek in four simple points:
    1. He lived with his parents till he died
    2. He had the same profession as his father
    3. He thought his mother was a virgin and finally
    4. His mother thought he was God!

    Thank you for taking the time to translate!

    I can see him in my mind's eye clear as day. He looks like Raoul Bova to me. Well, Raoul Bova always comes to my mind. :)




    O Malandrino...It's weird about that stance. My husband has it, but how could he have learned it? Is it coded in the dna? :)

    Surely there are musical genres including the Neapolitan song that lend themselves to be reworked in jazz/blues/soul mode... Renzo Arbore in this sense is a genius and often creates pieces that are as much fun as musically impeccable :)

    I never really knew any Neapolitan music until I met my husband, then had to have it translated into Italian for me, but I became a complete convert. I love the whole canon. It can lend itself to anything: jazz/soul, as was said, rock, or ballad/opera as is often the case. There's a reason all the great classical singers produce versions of these dialect songs.

    Jonas Kaufman: Ungrateful Heart
    Core 'Ngrato
    Catari, Catari,


    Why do you say these bitter words to me
    Why do you speak and my heart
    torments me, Catari
    Don't forget that I've given you my heart, Catari
    Don't forget.
    Catari, Catari, what do you mean by
    these words that upset me?
    You don't think about my pain
    You don't think, You don't care.
    Heart, ungrateful heart
    You've stolen my life
    Everything's over
    But you don't even think about it anymore
    Catari, Catari

    You don't know that I even went to church
    I entered and prayed to God, Catari,
    and even said to the confessor
    I'm suffering for that one there.
    I'm suffering,
    You don't know how I'm suffering
    Suffering all these tortures.
    And the confessor, a holy person
    said My son, leave her alone, let her be.
    Heart, ungrateful heart,
    You've stolen my life
    Everything's over
    And you don't even think about us anymore"



    I think that's called being emotionally "open" about your feelings. :)

    As for "malandrino", for those who don't know, it means a man who isn't "bad", or, goodness knows, a criminal, but is a bit of a "rogue" to use and old English word, especially with women. "Ladies man" has the wrong connotation.

    Sure, Angela. Undoubtedly the Neapolitan song has its "blatant" component which makes it well executable in opera performances.

    I have a soft spot for this piece - with this specific recording - which is nothing but a prayer with which a lover begs his beloved to be able to go to bed with her one more night.
    The theme of a song that is now 120 years old is skilfully mixed with the powerful sounds of Afro-American music, and with some classical, Iberian and Arabic reminiscences...
