Can’t take my eyes off you – Musica in Classe – Tuesday 27th November 2012

Musica in Classe: Tuesday 27th November 2012
2130-2200 Italian time | 2030-2100 UK time | 1230-1300 SL time|
Italian Mood, Second Life (IM me for a TP if you get lost!)

Another 60s song this week (-this could be something to do with the fact that Helen has just bought a 60s album ….!). Come along in a soppy and romantic mood ready to sing this classic song which has had many covers. Here is my favourite version by Andy Williams (who died earlier this year). I like his silky voice, I like his grammar (he does not say ‘off of you’) and I like the fact that he does not change key half way through! I’ll be playing the song in D major by the way .. much easier than the E flat major in my book!

Here are a few YouTube links followed by Loris’ wonderful translation! Grazie Loris!
(1) Andy Williams:

(2) Frankie Valli …I want a jumper like his … 😉

(3) Gloria Gaynor

(4) Muse! (A controversial version juding by some of the comments!)

You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you
You feel like heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much
Sei troppo bella [bello] per essere vera [vero]
Non posso staccare gli occhi da te
Sembra il paradiso a toccarti
Voglio stringerti tanto

At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I’m alive
you’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you
Finalmente l’amore è arrivato
E ringrazio Dio se sono vivo
Sei troppo bella [bello] per essere vera [vero]
Non posso staccare gli occhi da te

Pardon the way that I stare
There’s nothing else to compare
The sight of you makes me weak
There are no words left to speak
Scusa il modo in cui ti fisso
Non esiste niente altro in confronto
Un’occhiata a te mi rende debole
Non rimangono altre parole da dire

So if you feel like I feel
Please let me know that it’s real
You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you
Così se tu ti senti come io mi sento
Per favore fammi sapere che è reale
Sei troppo bella [bello] per essere vera [vero]
Non posso staccare gli occhi da te

I love you, baby and if it’s quite all right
I need you, baby, to warm the lonely nights
I love you, baby, trust in me when I say
Amo te, amore mio e se va bene
Ho bisogno di te, amore mio, per scaldare le mie notti solitarie
Amo te, amore mio, credimi quando lo dico

Oh, pretty baby, don’t bring me down I pray
Oh, pretty baby, now that I’ve found you
Let me love you, baby, let me love you
Oh, amore mio bello, non buttarmi giù ti prego
Oh, amore mio bello, ora che ti ho trovato
Lascia che ti ami, amore, lascia che ti ami

You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you
You feel like heaven to touch
I wanna hold you so much
Sei troppo bella [bello] per essere vera [vero]
Non posso staccare gli occhi da te
Sembra il paradiso a toccarti
Voglio stringerti tanto

At long last love has arrived
And I thank God I’m alive
You’re just too good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you
Finalmente l’amore è arrivato
E ringrazio Dio se sono vivo [viva]
Sei troppo bella [bello] per essere vera [vero]
Non posso staccare gli occhi da te

I love you, baby and if it’s quite all right
I need you, baby to warm the lonely nights
I love you, baby, trust in me when I say
Amo te, amore mio e se va bene
Ho bisogno di te, amore mio, per scaldare le mie notti solitarie
Amo te, amore mio, credimi quando lo dico

Oh, pretty baby, don’t bring me down I pray
Oh, pretty baby, now that I’ve found you
Let me love you, baby, let me love you
Oh, amore mio bello, non buttarmi giù ti prego
Oh, amore mio bello, ora che ti ho trovato
Lascia che ti ami, amore, lascia che ti ami
