Claudio Baglioni wrote and sang Sabado en la tarde-which made the top ten list all over Europe in 1975, when I was a student there.

I shouldn't have posted the song above.

Its the kind of song which, as a Puerto Rican saying goes, wants to make you go pop open a vein-for all the hurt that goes with the end of a love.

That line-"...Sabato pia piano se ne va...."...

God, at least I'm not the only one who fights tears when listening to this song, judging from the comments and people's reactions.

Another line-"...senza te, morire..."
"...senza te, sofrire.."

God, the Italian language was invented for writing love songs.

Funny mood I've been having the past couple of days remembering one of my ex's, but it had to end....

....I had to return to America...

Here's another one of Italy's "boy wonder of love songs", Claudio Badoglio. Another one of his many hits while I was madly in love in my college years-E tu come stai?

...and when I thought I was over my pain, the song decided to follow me to America and Nydia Caro's version broke all the charts all over Latin America.

Here's Claudio's original version which also became an instant European hit-

Here you got me posting Baglioni while wiping off tears...LOL

Its a great sense remembering those who you gave so much love at some point in life.

Here's Nydia's version in Spanish, which is very close to Claudio's original words.

These lines-"...hoy he vuelto a regrabar,
...mis iniciales en tu espalda,
...y tengo miedo de aceptar,
...que estoy perdido y desolado,
...y tu como estas?"
always kill me, in Italian and in Spanish.

The damn song followed me to America.

Here's Nydia,

Yup, I've been thinking of contacting my long, lost Spanish love..or should I give it a rest and just let it live in my memory?

What do you think?

I, somewhat, knew this site would bring about your reaction.

For those posting regularly here, and especially to you, I had to, still, open my heart a little more.

Love is such an integral part of life.

If you still love him very much look for him.Recreate the flame between you and him.That would be so beautiful and romantic.

Now this is an answer which caught me by surprise.

Somehow, I was wishing for something along the lines of-"...let it live the eternal flame"...LOL

Thanks for giving me a bite to chew on!

This instrumental song, like many others ranging from Barry White-from my teen years to Paul Muriat's-from my childhood, take me back to my very own "summer of love" in 1976-in Ibiza.

An instant hit in France in 1975, it was part of the score of a French movie and the song became more famous than the movie it was written for.

The Italian name is Amore grande, amore libero

Thank God for music!

Its amazing how a melody instantly makes you relive a specific person, moment, mood.

This French song from a 1966 French movie does that.

The title song from A Man And A Woman, not much of a movie itself, instantly snaps a mental photo of my parents, in their 30's-both physically beautiful, if I may add.

Now that my crying jag passed, let me venture with my favorite Bobby Goldsboro song which is one to spark memories of my mother, when it used to come over the car radio while driving to and from my grandma's house.

I don't know what I'll do when she's not around....ooooops! tears..., and I haven't even played it yet....

Don't know what I'm to do with those which Mommy turned into her lullabies for me-like Only You, by the Platters, the first song I learned by heart when I was around 2, due to the many times she sang it to me.

Yeah man, yesterday was anything less but.....cathartic, if I may be so bold.

Dont know what came over me-but you know me, I prefer to blame it on Amanda Sofia...but I digress.

I wanted to start something different from the usual and that is to invite anyone to post their favorite songs and their reasons for it.
