It was suggested a while back that we ask everyone what they would like to see on the
next (please, please, please soon!) album. Since we think that’s what they may be
doing in Miami and L.A. (?) now seems like the time.

Here are my guesses and wishes:

Guess – Caruso (the trio version)
Wish – Il Mare Calmo Della Sera (I will ask for this one every time.)

DSCN0134 cropped marie

Guess – Anema E Core (Our Sinatra incarnate, of course)
Wish – The Prayer (the perfect song for Angels)

DSCN0143 - marieGuess – No Puede Ser (Piero! Who else even could?)


DSCN0181Wish/Guess – Unchained Melody (You know he wants to!)

My Biggest Wish – An arrangement of their own music. They are all so talented in so many ways.  We’ve had some teasers. It’s time!

Whats on your list?

(Jeanine, I left Che Non Vivo Senza Te for your list!)

  1. New York New York along with the song Andre Bocelli made famous. I can’t think of the name now but it was beautiful and their was also a version with a woman. Diane something can’t think of that either.

  2. I would really love for them to add You Raise Me Up to the album, but ANY song they sing will be FABULOUS!!😍

  3. I would love them to include all those magnificent, powerful songs mentioned above. I have been listening to them over and over again.
    Any song they sing they make their own in their own unique style and make our hearts soar with delight !! I know that the new CD will be spectacular !! Can’t wait !!

  4. Wish: More “classic” Italian!
    Wish: Piero’s “pop” “Piove, Piove”.
    Wish: “Old MacDonald Had a Farm” in Italian, of course:)

  5. Ignazio- “Hurt (A Chi”, “Passione” and “Love me with all your heart”
    Pierro-needs to sing something more “pop” to show his versatility “Stella by Starlight” and “Malafemmena”
    Gianluca-“Maria Elena” and “Till we meet again”
    It would me great if they had a chance to sing “The Lords Prayer”
    Sergio Franchi did it and it was amazing.
    As a group they could sing “Delila” and “My Prayer”
    A lot of these song are in English and Italian.

  6. Would love to hear Al Di La on the new album as well as Enema e core, E La Mia Vita from their first CD, and anything else they sing. I’m sure this CD will be platinum in a month!
    I have a strong feeling that we will be hearing something that they have collaborated in writing themselves; perhaps even hear them playing some of the music, like piano, drums.

  7. Some time ago an article said that they have a big group of songs to choose from and all three of them select the ones they want to sing. Also legally there are matters to deal with due to ‘copyrights’ etc. No matter what is in the album the fans are ready.

  8. Hi, I’m old fashioned but would drop dead in a faint if they sang “I’ll be seeing you” I also agree with “Maria Elena” Piero could sing an aria from Puccini’s opera La Boeme (sic) I never could spell that one. Can’t wait. Wow they will be in L.A. The whole air around here will change. Joanie G

    1. Oh Joanie, you are soo right. IL VOLO will be in LA and ( this is what I agree with soo much, I had to comment) The WHOLE AIR AROUND HERE WILL CHANGE!

      Makes me want to come down to LA just to be part of that deliciousness…

  9. Marie, I’m with you…would love a dvd, but I’ll take what I can get!! I adore hearing them, hearing AND seeing them is whipped cream on the top!!

  10. In addition to anything and everything already suggested, I hope “L’Amore e Amare L’Amore, the beautiful song the guys did with Toto Cutugno this past April 1 in Moscow, is part of Il Volo’s new CD.

    1. Also I wish that there were more of their concerts put on DVD/CD for us to watch & listen to. I am playing their CD’s over and over again and can’t get enough listening to them. Such beautiful voices and handsome young men.

      1. I have Live at the Detroit Opera House & Live from the Fillmore Miami Beach. Is there another one to buy? Please let me know.
        Barb B.

    1. I agree, Io Che Non Vivo ! I love this song and all the other songs Il Volo sings, too. I can’t wait for the new CD.

  11. Everything I have on my “wish list” has been mentioned above. Hearing them do The Lords Prayer” would give me goose bumps for sure! How about Dean Martin’s “That’s Amore” ? I have no idea if that’s the way it’s spelled, or even if it’s the correct title. I would love to hear Gianluca do that one. “No Puedo Ser” by Piero, and “Unchained Melody” by Ignazio.. But truthfully I will love everything the do!

  12. I would love “Can’t help falling in love”…”L’amore e amare L’amore” and “Io che non vivo” And new surprises of course! Can’t wait!!!!!

    1. All of your suggestions are great!

      And, Miriam, you named my top choices! Especially “Io che non vivo senza te”! (Thanks, Marie!)

      And Ignazio’s solo Quando L’Amore Diventa Poesia!

      Marie, for Unchained Melody, which I LOVE and definitely agree about Ignazio singing it… with an added touch of Gianluca and Piero singing back-up for Ignazio. I think a little bit of ooohs and ahhhs harmony would send that song soaring and be fun for all of them!

      I would love to hear Gianluca singing Have I Told You Lately That I Love You !! We got that little 15-second teaser a while back, and I’m hoping for the whole song! Gianluca knocked it out of the park! (as usual)

      And, yes, I’d love some magnificent Italian songs. I was just listening today to Un amore cosi grande and some of the songs from their first album. Ahhhh… 😉

      And I still would LOVE a DVD of the best of their Italian tour concerts, especially Taormina!!

      Great question, Marie!

  13. Anything they sing in Italian would good for me, and a lot of what has already been mentioned,eg. The Lord’s Prayer, Hallelujah, Una More Cosi grande, oh so many, Ilove them all.

  14. Ignazio-Unchained Melody pleeeease
    Gianluca-Are You Lonesome Tonight
    The Lord’s Prayer
    More Italian songs
    Anything will be great. They know what they are doing.

  15. I have suggested to all three plus
    Barbara and Michele that IF by Bread would be the perfect song for the boys. Check it out on YouTube and see if you agree.

  16. My last entry for today. Will rest and maybe listen to “Texas Tenors” again.
    PLEASE VOTE for Il Volo for “The Best international Male or Group.” “All about Il Volo Facebook has an easy voting chart which also shows results. So far an Italian singer MARCO CARTA is ahead of Il Volo. Good night.

  17. No Marie. It’s not that. This song by Andre was very popular about ten years ago. It was often played at weddings. He sang it alone and as a duet with a woman who I believe first name was Diane

  18. While I would love a bunch of solos, realistically speaking I don’t think it will happen. I actually brought up il mare calmo to Ignazio at the M&G and he shook his head and made a face. So I don’t think that will happen either, even though I would love to hear him sing it solo or all of them together. Whatever they sing I am sure we will love it! And I also hope they do something original!

  19. I would love to hear” Memory”-Ignazio
    “Summertime”- Ignazio “Unchained Melody”-Ignazio
    “Quando l’amore diventa poesia”-Ignazio
    “Can’t help falling in love”-Ginluca
    “Nocturne”–all three maybe
    “The Prayer”-all three
    “Nights in White Satin”-all three maybe
    Oh!!!! I would be pleased with any song the boys want to sing. Love them so!!!!!

  20. Just checked voting for best international group and Il Volo is ahead by a land slide. Haven’t got a lot of time left to vote, but today is the first I’ve heard about it, and don’t know if you can vote more than once. Need to know more!

    The only song I can think of right now is an arrangement using all three singing
    “You’ll Never Walk Alone”, and the one they sang w/Toto.

    Oh yeah, Piero – “If I Loved you” Mario Lanza
    Ignazio – “Unchained Melody”.
    Gianluca, – “How Deep Is The Ocean”, and “Alejate”,(David Foster&Humberto Gatica)

    But, as always, it’s your choice! We’ll love whatever you do!

    1. But we’ll love you even more when Ignazio sings Il Mare Calmo Della Sera. Sorry Kitty, had to add that! Also had to bold the print on part of your comment. VOTE!

  21. Has any heard if Ignazio has received his birthday cards? He may still be reading them!! Guess we’ll hear in time!!

  22. My Mother was a singer/songwriter in the 50’s. Every Wednesday she would go to the publishers in NYC which was very progressive for a woman back then. She never gave up the hope that one or more of her songs would be published. When I was 11 years old she was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. Despite it all she plugged along for another ten years sitting at her piano( which I have in my house now) and composing her music. One song ” The Rhode Island Redhead From Pawtucket ” was on the TV program “Songs For Sale” in the 50’s. It was a contest for unknown song writers and my Mothers song won. You can hear Teresa Brewer sing it on You Tube.
    My Mother wrote a song ” A Man Searching For Dream” The lyrics and music have the power and emotional impact of both “You’ll Never Walk Alone and “I Believe. I wanted to bring this song to the M&G last June and give it to the Guys but my sister said we first have explore copy write laws. At this point in my life I would just love to honor my Mother and get this memorable song out there. In my head I can hear Gianluca, Ignazio and Piero singing this song with their powerful voices which dissolves me into tears just as the other two songs do. Even though there are millions of songs they could sing– my dream and my wish is that they will sing my Mothers song someday.
    Sorry this is so wordy but my Mother has been gone for 50 years and I have always wanted her music to get the recognition it deserves. Now I have introduced her to you–her name was Kay Wells. Maybe just maybe the guys will read this and be interested. That would be a dream come true.

    1. Joanie, what a beautiful story. To honor your mother this many years later by having her music sung would be truly an amazing gift. I hope you succeed.

      1. Wow, Joanie! I want to hear your mom’s song!

        Thank you for sharing!

        Blessings of peace,
        ~ Jeanine, Compassion’s Doorway

  23. I would like to hear Ignazio sing “You’ll Never Walk Alone” and Gianluca
    sing “Without A Song.” Trio to sing “The Impossible Dream.”

  24. I would like very much for them to sing a couple songs written by and/or for them. Songs so beautiful that other singers will want to record them….but only Il Volo would do it justice! My dream for them.

  25. I would like them sing “Io Che non Vivo piu di un Ora” (You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me), Dusty Springfield.

  26. Yes, by all means ‘The Lord’s Prayer” “Hallelujah” “You Raise Me Up”
    “Il Mare Calmo della cero” Gianluca’s solo, another solo for GG Night and Day,
    Ignazio solo “Love Me Tender” Peiro’s solo, Over the Rainbow. I have many
    more on my list but maybe this is enough for the present. I can’t wait unti
    the new CD comes out, maybe in time for Christmas holiday.

  27. NBJamesonD, I agree with your wanting them to do some of their own music. Also, would like to see one of them play piano for the other. I’m thinking the more versatile, diverse and creative they are, the more in demand they will be. Just so they don’t change what got them where they are today. They are darn near perfect now, but think what they would be, using ALL the talents they’ve been given! God certainly was generous with his blessings towards them. What a gift to us as well.

    1. Kitty I agree about the more diverse they are the better. I also think they need to be OUT THERE….in public, like the scene at the airport. They may have been surprised and thrilled to see fans there but the media picks it up too and the more the boys are SEEN (I went to the invite-only concert and m & g at NY’s JFK Airport in 2012) the better. They need to be out there. Also think if they would release the album BEFORE Christmas/Chanukah/Kwanzaa, the sales and exposure would be tremendous!!!!

  28. Hi,

    I agree with all of the above suggestions. Off the top of my head, here are mine:

    Volare (Your Love Has given Me Wings)
    It’s Time to Say Good Bye (Andre Bocelli)

    There are so many more on my wish list, but I’m drawing a blank right now.

    I’m going back to the voting site for best international group. I found a way to “rapid vote”: click on Il Volo, click on Vote, scroll to the bottom of that block and then go back to Vote again. You will find yourself in the same block and can vote a number of times before you get the message, that you have voted too many times for now.
    I’m going back to the site to see if it will allow me to resume voting for awhile. Oh well, what else does a grown women have to do? Lots, but I’m taking the time to make our guys look good!



  29. Gianluca- Can’t help falling in love with you 🙂
    I Just love hearing him sing that song.
    Oh and there was this very nice ballad from Andrea bocelli’s album “Passione” that I would love to hear them sing. It’s called “Era Gia Tutto Previsto”. Lovely song!!!

      1. And since Bocelli is one of Gian’s role models, it would be an even better song for him! (Sorry for the grammar in that sentence! I didn’t know how to word it!)
