Italian music suggestions

Recommended Posts

My FI is a first generation American and I would like to compile a surprise list of Italian songs to be played during the reception in Jamaica as well as the AHR in July. Does anyone have any suggestions for artists or songs?

Hi Carly - I have a TON of Italian music too. Like Maura, I lived there for quite a while.

 

Let me know what type of music you want (traditional, pop, rock, love songs, etc.) and PM me an e-mail address and I'll get you some selections as well.

 

I just checked my iTunes - I've got over 1,000 songs in italian. I'm pretty sure I can get you some that will suit your purposes!

Holy smokes, over 1000 Italian songs! That's great, I will PM you my address now... And honestly, I don't know what I am looking for, probably something that 50-70 year olds would like?

Personally I love Andrea Bocelli for romantic songs. And I think the older crowd will probably like to hear all the traditional italian songs. Will you do the tarantela (sp?) at your wedding?

Abbie - That's Amore. "When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore" Or something like that. I know what you mean!

 

Glenda - what in the world is that? I read it as tarantula (spider)?

 

Hmmm, found what it means, and I guess not, since I never heard of it!

 

Tarantella

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 

In music and dance tarantella most commonly refers to a traditional or folk dance which though Neapolitan is named for the city of Taranto in Southern Italy and often features a lively compound duple meter or 6/8 time. The term tarantella, however, refers to two dances[1] "whose origins are as different as their characteristics"[2]. The folk dance originating in Naples, originally stately, is often confused with dancing involved in the condition of tarantism named for Taranto, and the latter may mistakenly be called tarantella, possibly leading to later confusion in which Neapolitan tarantellas are treated as ecstatic or agitated rather than stately.
