Damn…I missed her for a few days! February 18, 2009

Posted by Domenico in Music.

Yes, it’s definitively true, we should take care of our time and spend it in the best possible way. There are plenty of choices we could take and most of the time we go for them without thinking if they’re the right ones but maybe just because that is the time to move. To move on. To move somewhere else. Not to stand still.

Today I want to delight your years with the voice of the beautiful Emiliana Torrini.

This Icelandic singer is the daughter of an Italian man who married an Icelandic woman and decided that he wanted to live in Iceland and open an Italian restaurant (I know the story sound so “Bella Italia, pizza, maccheroni…” but sometimes this is the way things go). Miss Emiliana Torrini Davíðsdóttir (ok, now you can see that she’s really not only Italian) worked also as a waiter in the family restaurant but fortunately chose to dedicate her time to something else.

As for the title of today’s post, yesterday I realized that she was here playing live just the last Monday and I did miss her concert (such a pity!). Nevertheless, let’s enjoy her wonderful voice in the song “Sunny Road”:

Wrote you this
I hope you got it safe
It’s been so long
I don’t know what to say
I’ve travelled ’round
Through deserts on my horse
But jokes aside
I wanna come back home
You know that night
I said i had to go
You said you’d meet me
On the sunny road

It’s time, meet me on the sunny road
it’s time, meet me on the sunny road

I never married
Never had those kids
I loved too many
Now heaven’s closed its gates.
I know I’m bad
To jump on you like this
Some things don’t change
My middle name’s still ‘Risk’
I know that night
So long long time ago
Will you still meet me
On the sunny road

It’s time, meet me on the sunny road
It’s time, meet me on the sunny road

Well, this is it
I’m running out of space
Here is my address
And number just in case.
This time as one
We’ll find which way to go
Now come and meet me
On the sunny road

Sometimes I wonder how a population of 300,000 can produce so many good voices.
It must be something in the dried fish…

or maybe it could be the half Italian side…

I didn’t think her voice was anything special?
