SABATO MUSICALE

This track from 2006 is of the saddest songs ever recorded by Eros Ramazzotti.  It is about a twenty-year-old girl who committed suicide by throwing herself under a train.  In the song, Eros wonders if he could have helped her but, sadly, she dreamed of a world very different from this one.   In an interview about the song, Eros said that our difficulties should make us stronger but only those who have been in that dark, hopeless place know how hard this is:

Lovely! I'm so appreciative of the fact that when I come here, I get a full range of experiences, virtual visits to Italy with all the senses. Grazie mille.

Just catching up and enjoying your posts, welshcakes.

Younger son's Girlfriend who is living with us is Italian and we're learning a little of the Italian ways from her.

A beautiful song which perfectly suited my mood at the moment. I think you already know I am a fan of Eros and have used his music on Sunday Songs before.

I'm a huge fan of Eros and sometimes have difficulty understanding his lyrics and the meanings behind his songs because my Italian is not the best, so I really appreciate this post :)
