Thread Name: Lyr Req: Bambino (Tom Springfield)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bambino (Tom Springfield)
i first heard this springfield song when i was about 11 in 1961 and loved it. later in life on hearing "He shall feed His flock" from the Messiah i recognised the melody and thought that this is where the Springfields got their inspiration, however today i learned that even Handel pinched the melody probably from a Scicilian shepherd, and thanks to Crustula i went to you tube and listened to Pavarotti singing "Tu Scendi Dalle Stella". Thanks to you all, i have finally come to the end of my search for the origions of "Bambino"
