I am happily retired. As a career I found myself in the business end of education. Spent most of my working life researching, developing and implementing a broad spectrum of local, state and national education programs. Other than some travel, my focus now is Il Volo and the Flight Crew. How lucky am I to have found such joy? I'm having the time of my life!
Oh, and I'll be a vegetarian when bacon grows on trees.
Ciao all!! I am so sorry you are not seeing the Mexico posts today! However, Gin and I literally had to go tonight to check on a sick friend and I did not get home until 11p. Oh, early for me, you say? True, but I had a few other pressing emails I also had to return. So, enjoy this lovely little poem from Marie! 🙂
Buonanotte tutte!! jmv (y estoy muy, muy cansado!)
Do you know?
Gianluca, do you know that when I’m sitting in absolute silence I hear your voice?
Piero, do you know that even in the middle of a conversation you are suddenly singing opera in my head and it interrupts my train of thought?
Ignazio, do you know that I can feel your song finding its way gently, yet swiftly from my ears to my heart?
Do you know that I can almost taste the words “Il Volo” ?
Oh, my three angels of soul, do you know that these things happen not only to me?
Here, for your pleasure and better understanding, are a few Il Volo songs with English lyrics.
This is my all time favorite Il Volo number:
My newest Fav:
One of “the worlds” favorites:
The “greatest love” song for many of us:
I really wanted to give you Nessun Dorma, but couldn’t find an Il Volo English translation. However, here it is by a man our Boys regret they never met. Luciano Pavarotti died in 2007. Our Guys would have been 11 or 12 then. Piero, Gianluca and Ignazio wouldn’t have heard of each other back then either and never would have thought of the words Il and Volo connected to them. They couldn’t possibly have dreamed of the fame they someday would achieve:
He would have loved our Guys.
English lyrics, all but one, beautifully sung in Italian by three stupendously talented young men. We are so lucky to know them.
Come in and share the love of life, friends and Il Volo!
