Final song (for now) in my bossa's-in-Italy series..this one about the Eternal City.

Bella Citta

Welcome to Rome, now you're in Italy!
Bella citta! Welcome to Italy!
Ciao amore!

You kissed the ground at Fiumicino today;
Vita romana e piu vicino per te!

Campo d'fiori for our primo caffe;
Nella Borghese passegiando the day.

Jump on my vespa and hold me tight
Via Veneto and other sights!

Nel Vaticano la messa ensieme we pray;
La margarita bella then casa di me.

Roma's alive to the flaming heart;
Boca della Verita to start;
Great view! Love's new! Mai di piu!
I wanna make it my home with you.

At Trevi fountain toss a penny or two;
E per la cena, pasta e vino with you!

Walk thru the Forum and Rome of old;
Then Piazza Navona as night unfolds!

Tano,

Very nice. I love the jazzy feel of this one. I also like the mix - has a "live" feel to it.

Hello, Tom

Very nice Bossa Nova as usual.
The chord progression, too!
Italian words are very cool.
The dialogue between solo vocal and back chorus reminds me of Brazilian samba.
Enjoyed my listen a lot.

Best regards.

Shigeki Adachi

Hi,
original song and I'm particularly impressed because you sing of Rome.

A question, why Rome? is there any affective reason?

Otherwise a really nice song, whith good jazzy style.

Sergio

Sergio, Peter..thank you for listening.

Sergio..I will never forget that I once travelled to Rome from the US, and, as we were landing at Fiumicino, the airline was playing a song in which they were singing something about “Bella citta”..so that stuck in my mind. When I was working on this song, before I had the idea of the lyrics, the melody notes made me think of “Bella citta”..so I decided that I should make the song about Rome. And by mixing the lyric word of English with Italian, I found that I immediately gained many more cool rhymes.

You made a nice work.
I hope you keep a beautiful image of Rome in your mind; a unique town all over the world.

Great work on this one, Tano Music smile I love the groove on this one, and also how you flawlessly combined languages here. I nearly missed it for the first half of the song, admittedly because I was mostly listening to the musical aspect. Fantastic chord progressions too.

Really nice job here - thanks for sharing!
