Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Terra Straniera (Old Italian Song)
Terra Straniera -- foreign Land --- as sung b Luciano Tajoli has to be one of the saddest, most nostalgic songs ever. It must havebrought many a tear to the eyes of expatriate Italians in the post-war diaspora.

It is not uplifting, it offers no hope....but reinforces the sad plight in which those Italians found themselves. The only comfort is that someone...a song wrinter...and a singer...empathise with them
