Because of the momentous news this week, the Furkids feel a momentous song is in order and there is no more momentous a song than an opera aria. Well, actually it isn’t an aria from an opera, but it’s close-ish. It’s sung by the Three Tenors. (We’re working our way up to opera.)
O Sole Mio is one of the most beloved of the Three Tenors’ repertoire, not only by the audience but by the tenors themselves. It is worth watching the video all the way through just to see the by-play between the three of them as they work out whose turn it is to sing which part of the song!
The Three Tenors are Luciano Pavarotti, Plácido Domingo and José Carreras. While they perform in the original Italian, the Furkids decided to translate most of the lyrics into English for you as they illustrated them. O Sole Mio has been sung in English many times but always with newly-minted lyrics, never with a direct translation. The Furkids decided that the latter is more fun.
The jukebox is full of Italian coins, as is fitting for a Neapolitan song, and ready to go! Just press play then scroll down and, in your best diva voice, sing along!
