O Sole Mio

I love this song. Listen to this beautiful rendition of “O Sole Mio” by Andrea Bocelli:

(from OetinggerCroat)

I fell in love again with this song listening to this instrumental rendition beautifully performed on a classical guitar:

(from qaznipn)

 “O Sole Mio” is a well-known and much loved Neapolitan song composed in 1848 by Eduardo di Capua and lyrics written by Giovanni Capurro. It had been performed by many famous artistes that include Caruso, Gigli, The Three Tenors, Bocelli and even Elvis Presley and Bryan Adams. “O Sole Mio” translates literally as ‘My Sun”.  Read the lyrics here:

Che bella cosa e’ na giornata ‘e sole
n’aria serena doppo na tempesta!
Pe’ ll’aria fresca pare già na festa
Che bella cosa e’ na giornata ‘e sole
Ma n’atu sole,
cchiù bello, oje ne’
‘O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
‘O sole, ‘o sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
sta ‘nfronte a te!
Quanno fa notte e ‘o sole se ne scenne,
me vene quase ‘na malincunia;
sotto ‘a fenesta toia restarria
quanno fa notte e ‘o sole se ne scenne.
Ma n’atu sole,
cchiù bello, oje ne’
‘O sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
‘O sole, ‘o sole mio
sta ‘nfronte a te!
sta ‘nfronte a te!

 The English translation goes something like this:

What a beautiful thing is a sunny day,
The air is serene after a storm
The air’s so fresh that it already feels like a celebration
What a beautiful thing is a sunny day
But another sun,
that’s brighter still
It’s my own sun
that’s upon your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s upon your face!
It’s upon your face!
When night comes and the sun has gone down,
I almost start feeling melancholy;
I’d stay below your window
When night comes and the sun has gone down.
But another sun,
that’s brighter still
It’s my own sun
that’s upon your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s upon your face!
It’s upon your face!
