Little Italy

Hi there,

I wanted to share with you this song that I wrote a few months ago. It's a song about Italy, a country dear to my heart :)
To help you with the understanding, I added some subtitles that you need to start on youtube. I let you discover the song. Thank you all

The lyrics : 

Sweetness invites us, Near Italy
Life abandons us, In the heart of Verona

A suspicion of Chianti, One or 2 martini
Their flavor caresses us, Two spritz and we take off

It is beautiful as a Prada at sale price
as Pope Francis in gondola
A moonlight swim in Capri
Little Italy

Those too strong voices which resound
These vongole that we adore
It is beautiful my Little Ita, Little Italy

An old vespa , Lost in Lombardy         
An ice cream just the 2 of us , On the Lake Como
At the end of a narrow street, A miracle fountain
In a burning heat, Intriguing beautiful Roma

It is beautiful as a Prada at sale price
As Pope Francis in gondola
A moonlight swim in Capri
Little Italy

Those too strong voices which resound
These vongole that we adore
It is beautiful my Little Ita, Little Italy

Canals and alleys making noise
Venice is packed
An invaded lagoon
Sinking beautiful Venice

Spoken :
I know you for a long time
You run in my veins
Your thousand colors streets
I know them by heart
I recognize all your perfumes
I guess your flavors
My second homeland,ma little Italy

It is beautiful as a Prada at sale price
As Pope Francis in gondola
A moonlight swim in Capri
Little Italy

Those too strong voices which resound
These vongole that we adore
It is beautiful my Little Ita, Little Italy

  • Hi Bielka,

     

     I like the tune and the lyrics quite well. It evokes Italy successfully to me with all those things you describe, which are quite a few, but you managed it within viable time limits and strophic structures. Well done! Thanks for sharing and do more, you've got it!

  • Thank you Socrates for your feedback and for listening. You can discover more on my YouTube page if you want to :)

  • Thanks Bielka. I listened to four more songs and I found them all very well constructed and very charming musically. I also like the lyrics, quite imaginative but strait forward. Congratulations on "Palaman City", and "Le Bonheur". I hope you get a lot of viewing. (I'm listening to "Comment te Dire" again at the moment. :-)

    Can ask two questions:

    1 In the production of music is there BIAB or Real Tracks involved anywhere, or what else Daw/Sequencer equipment?

    2 Is Bielka Music site constructed using Word Press?

    Thanks.

    Best regards

  • HI Bielka-

    Very evocative, and very seductive music--very well done, and very enjoyable:)

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  • Thank you bob for your kind reply. I'm happy you enjoyed it :-)

  • Hi Bielka,

    I like this very much. It is soft and touching, nice production values, and is romantic in tone. The music and singing are quite lovely. If I had one question to ask about it, it might be whether the piece could benefit from a slight reduction in the percussion volume, perhaps by 10-15% or so, as when it comes in it tends to dominate. This may only reflect a difference in personal approach and perhaps others do not perceive this.

    Thanks for sharing!
