    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...


    Between weddings, Baptisms, First Communions, Italian American Bar Association Dinner Dances, and even at a local country club whose membership is heavily Southern Italian laden, I must have heard this song a hundred times by now. :)

    This is one time we have to disagree, though. :) For me, the best version of a lot of these songs is almost always the one by Roberto Murolo in his prime.

    Heartbreakingly beautiful, imo.



    For those who might like to know the words.
    Arápete fenesta,
    famme affacciá a Maria,
    ca stóngo 'mmiez'â via
    speruto d''a vedé.

    Open up window,
    let Mary appear,
    I'm in the middle of the street
    waiting to see her.


    Nun trovo n'ora 'e pace,
    'a notte 'a faccio juorno,
    sempe pe' stá ccá attuorno,
    speranno 'e ce parlá.

    I can notfind an hour's peace,
    live the night as it was day,
    to always stay here around,
    waiting to talk to her.


    Oj Marí, oj Marí,
    quanta suonno ca perdo pe' te,
    famme addurmí,
    nu poco abbracciato cu te.

    Hey Mary, hey Mary
    how much sleep I lose for you,
    let me fall asleep,
    just a little, embraced to you.


    Oj Marí, oj Marí,
    quanta suonno ca perdo pe' te,
    famme addurmí,
    oje Marí, oje Marí.

    Hey Marie, hey Marie
    how much sleep I lose for you,
    let me fall asleep,
    Hey Marie, hey Marie


    Pare che giá s'arape
    na sénga 'e fenestella,
    Maria, cu 'a manella,
    nu segno a me mme fa.

    It appears that now opens
    a slit in the window,
    Mary, with her little hand,
    makes me a nod.


    Sòna chitarra mia!
    Maria s'è scetata!
    Na scicca serenata
    facímmole sentí.

    Play, o my guitar!
    Maria woke up!
    A beautiful serenade
    let's play for her.


    Oj Marí, oj Marí,
    quanta suonno ca perdo pe' te,
    famme addurmí,
    abbracciate nu poco cu te.

    Hey Marie, hey Marie
    how much sleep I lose for you,
    let me fall asleep,
    just a little, embraced to you.


    Oj Marí, oj Marí,
    Quanta suonno ca perdo pe' te,
    famme addurmí,
    oje Marí, oje Marí!

    Hey Marie, hey Marie
    how much sleep I lose for you,
    let me fall asleep,
    Hey Marie, hey Marie

    Another one of my favorites is Vieni Sul Mar. I really like the melody. There used to be a version by Murolo on youtube but I don't see it now.

    This version is by a not very well known Argentinian tenor but it has the benefit of a good onscreen English translation, and the singer doesn't "over-belt" it, if you know what I mean. It still sounds intimate.



    They know how to get you, the Neapolitans. :)

    I guess Duarte will love this one, especially the refrain.
    Right, Duarte? ;)

    I know it's dating me, but South Florida always means Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine. :) They still play that music in the Lord and Taylor clothing store as background music, and in my favorite Cuban restaurant down there too. I think that's pretty cool. :)

    Not going to see the movie since I didn't even like the play. :) The only thing that's spectacular is this one song, and no one has ever sung it better than Elaine May, imo, both musically and emotionally, not Celine Dione, or Barbara Streisand or Hudson. I just always get emotional when I hear it. Gut wrenching.

    So glad I'm not the only one who likes Disney songs, or maybe isn't afraid to admit to liking Disney songs. :)

    Ed. One of my real loves is musical theater, what we call "Broadway music", and my favorite play is Les Mes.

    On My Own:

    Undoubtedly many fortunes of some Disney feature films - at least for the successes dated especially between the 60s and 70s - were due to first-rate soundtracks. New compositions by established artists (think of Elton John for the "Lion King" in more recent times) or beautiful reinterpretations and readjustments of classic compositions. What I perhaps prefer is the famous Sleeping Beauty waltz which draws heavily on that one by Tchaikovsky :)

    And the men who hold high places
    Must be the ones who start
    To mold a new reality
    Closer to the Heart
    Closer to the Heart

    The Blacksmith and the Artist
    Reflect it in their art
    They forge their creativity
    Closer to the Heart
    Yea, Closer to the Heart

    Philosophers and Plowmen
    Each must know his part
    To sow a new mentality
    Closer to the Heart
    Closer to the Heart

    You can be the Captain
    And I will draw the chart
    Sailing into destiny
    Closer to the Heart
    Closer to the Heart
    Well, Closer to the Heart
    Yeah, Closer to the Heart
    Closer to the Heart
    I said, Closer to the Heart

    Rivers loom large in many religions. There are numerous mentions of the River Jordan in Gospel music.

    However, whenever I hear of the rivers of Babylon I immediately think of Leonard Cohen's "Dance Me to the End of Love". Shows where my mind's at! :) His too! Did anyone ever celebrate physical love between man and woman better than he did?

    Rivers loom large in many religions. There are numerous mentions of the River Jordan in Gospel music.

    However, whenever I hear of the rivers of Babylon I immediately think of Leonard Cohen's "Dance Me to the End of Love". Shows where my mind's at! :) His too! Did anyone ever celebrate physical love between man and woman better than he did?

    I was never a Belushi fan, but this was one fun movie. :)

    I'm sure most Sundays it isn't like this, but my dear Jamaican friend did say our Mass was really boring compared to her services. :)
