The Italian Song

The hook to this song is the …Niente, Niente, Niente… line that drops a 3/4 bar, it almost seems to go into a 2 beat time signature – but it can be counted as 3x 3/4 bars.

For those of you that don’t speak Italian, the words in English:

Quest Owe ‘N’ Jar Know, The Viva Ray

    Lucia Maria Minervini translates: there is nothing that ties me to you anymore. I feel empty and have touched bottom to understand this pain I have to live with….” anyway – those are the words to the chorus (or in italiano – il ritornello)!
