Thread Name: Lyr Req: Terra Straniera (Old Italian Song)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Terra Straniera (Old Italian Song)
the song appears to be an orphan, that is the credits go to
"anonimo"/anonimous, for writing it. it was, however, the fourth best selling single in italy in 1953 as performed by luciano tajoli at a time when people were emigrating literally by the ship-load, thereby rendering their own country a foreign land....terra straniera.
that' s the sentiment it means to convey.
