Sunday Song - American Independence Day and Fabrizio Moro


No connection between my two choices today though as far as I know! 

Blogger Welshcakes Limocello who lives in Sicily featured Fabrizio Fabrizio Moro for a Sabato Musicale post last weekend.

I found her choice Melodia di Giugno  particularly soothing and with her kind approval decided I would feature it as my Sunday Song this weekend.

It was of course after that I realised only a few days ago no longer going to be June- Guigno by the time I came to post this. Not only that but it is also July 4th American Independence Day. Happy Birthday America.

There are many Americans living in Italy who will be having great celebrations today, so it is in their honour that I included this greeting and some relevant music in my post today.

In honour of American Independence Day  I have chosen this video from You Tube that has a selection of patriotic music and also some patriotic photos taken by a blogger that calls Nashville home The Three Star Spangled Banner

For something completely different and in contrast a couple of songs from Fabrizio Moro, who was born in Roma in 1975, first the one already mentioned.

Although it is no longer Giugno I hope you will enjoy this as much as I did.

  12. We had a nice day on the lake, and enjoyed fireworks on the fourth...wonderful to have a 3 day weekend once in a while. Checked the computer before calling it a day, and saw your post including July 4th music. That was a nice surprise, and I am sure your Am/It friends enjoyed it. I also liked your other music selections, especially the "Melodia di Giugno."
    Can't promise when, but the next time I know that I am going to be going through a rural area, I will take my camera with me in case I come across a pasture with cows and said birds.
    I hope you also had a nice weekend.

  13. What a lovely "June" song, it's really soothing and I just took 5mins out with my coffee on a Tuesday morning just listening... Thanks the lovely start to my day. I hope you have a lovely week, Love from London x
