30 Days, 30 Songs

Sugar asked me to participate in a Thirty-day Song Challenge. Happy to join in with her and post more music. I’m going to alter my participation parameters a bit and only post after Sugar posts hers.

1 – “Favorite Song”

The right answer is that there is no single song that’s the right one for all situations and occasions. However, I do have the song that I’ve made my answer to this question over the years.

Caruso – Composed by Lucio Dalla

This song has been covered by a murderer’s row of artists, from every notable tenor to artists like Julio Iglesias, Lara Fabian and Josh Groban. The premise is simple – a man’s lamentations on his death-bed to his daughter. It’s fiendishly difficult to sing well. I chose the Bocelli rendition here because Andrea has a delicate balance of emotion and technique that lends power to the performance. The other definitive performance would be the collaboration between the composer Dalla and the titan himself, Luciano Pavarotti.

2 – “Least Favorite Song”

I’m going to skip this. There isn’t a “least favorite” song. Sure, some genres I avoid (metal, rap, hip hop) because I don’t enjoy them, but I can’t consider any single song as worthy of such a label because stuff I don’t like I don’t listen to.

  1. Very good choice of favourite song. As for the least favourite song, mine came from listening to it on the radio without an option to avoid! 🙂 curious to see your next song!
