'O SOLE MIO ON "THE TALK"


Il Volo performed 'O Sole Mio on CBS' The Talk (2/28/11). This is apparently their first time on American television! It was really nice to see that the audience jumping out of the their seats for a standing ovation. I would've done that too if I were there! They sang so well. Really enjoyed Piero's little message at the end :D

Here's the lyrics and English translation of 'O Sole Mio (Source: Wikipedia).

Neapolitan lyrics

Che bella cosa e' na jurnata 'e sole
n'aria serena doppo na tempesta!
Pe' ll'aria fresca pare già na festa
Che bella cosa e' na jurnata '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!
   English translation

   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!
