O Sole Mio

O sole mio
sta 'nfronte a te!

Hmm... saat mendengar lagu itu dari telenovela Italia, "Terra Nostra", kayanya enakeun banget, romatis gimana gitu... heheheh... Setelah cukup lama saya baru tau kalau lagu ini dipopulerkan juga oleh Elvis Presley dengan judul "It's Now or Never". Secara pribadi saya tetep suka yang versi Italia..

Kemarin, di acara pembukaan ICMNS 2010, lagu ini dimainkan sebagai lagu pembukaan dengan instrumen yang digunakan (sepertinya adalah) gamelan dengan kombinasi dengan drum (karena saya tidak sempat lihat, hanya sempat dengar saja.. jadi agak-agak ga yakin). Saat conference dinner lagu ini didendangkan (versi Elvis) oleh seorang dekan..

Okay, without further ado, this is the lyrics from the Italian version, and its English translation, taken from: http://classicalmusic.about.com/od/opera/qt/osolemiolyrics.htm

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 wonderful thing a sunny day
The serene air after a thunderstorm
The fresh air, and a party is already going on…
What a wonderful thing a sunny day.

But another sun,
that’s brighter still
It’s my own sun
that’s in your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s in your face!
It’s in your face!

When night comes and the sun has gone down,
I start feeling blue;
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 in your face!
The sun, my own sun
It’s in your face!
It’s in your face!



Next, the Elvis' version lyrics (taken from: http://www.stlyrics.com/lyrics/in-laws/itsnowornever.htm):
It's now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it's now or never
My love won't wait.

When I first saw you
with your smile so tender
My heart was captured,
my soul surrendered
I'd spend a lifetime
waiting for the right time
Now that your near
the time is here at last.

It's now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it's now or never
My love won't wait.

Just like a willow,
we would cry an ocean
If we lost true love
and sweet devotion
Your lips excite me,
let your arms invite me
For who knows when
we'll meet again this way

It's now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it's now or never
My love won't wait.


Hmmm...kayanya yang versi Elvis lebay pisan... hahahahaha..

Pas nyari-nyari di wikipedia... ternyata ada statement ini:
In October 2002 a judge in Turin declared that Alfredo Mazzucchi (1878–1972), previously considered only as a music transcriber, was actually a legitimate third author.[1][2][3] The song has been removed from the public domain and is now protected by copyright until 2042.

Hmm, ga ngerti kenapa tiba-tiba dilindungi copyright... tapi yang pasti, sampai tahun 2042 loh...
