I’ve done SMILE’s for other languages in the past, so this week I thought I would try a new one! So, sit back, relax, and eat some pasta because this week’s music is all about Italy! Enjoy!
To start things off, we have Baby K‘s Roma-Bangkok ft. Giusy Ferreri (lyrics)(Italian). I like the voices of these two, they fit nicely together, and they’re not the usual cute-girly voices I’m used to running into (maybe that’s an American thing…idk). I look forward to finding more songs by these two ^^
Another female singer is up next, but with a completely different kind of song; here’s Laura Pausini‘s Lato Destro del Cuore (lyrics)(Italian). For me, this is one of those songs that’s hard to place. It’s a little country, a little pop, a little ballad… but, either way, it’s good – and I love the surprise at the end hehe
Bringing in a male voice, here’s Luca Carboni‘s Luca lo stesso (lyrics)(Italian). Now, this video is straight up Robert Palmer’s Addicted to Love, but aside from that, the song is a pretty relaxing one to dance to. The lyrics are pretty awesome too, even if I couldn’t find an exact translation xP
Last up for this week is Ligabue‘s Non ho che te (lyrics)(Italian). I not only love the message of this song, but also the fact that it’s from an older rocker. It’s uncommon to see anyone other than fresh-faced (or shit-faced depending on the music you’re listening to) 20-somethings, you know? It adds a nice maturity to the song, gives it more meaning.
What are some of your favorite Italian songs or singers? Let me know in a comment below, and be sure to include any suggestions you may have for future SMILEs!
