Subject: Help!!! Italian song: Parla mi d'amore, Mariu
From: Joe Offer
Date: 07 Dec 98 - 10:36 PM

I'm supposed to play Italian tenor and learn a song somebody remembers from her grandmother. It's called "Tell Me that You Love Me" in English, and I have a fairly clear copy of the English version. The Italian lyrics are the ones my friend want me to sing, though, and all I have is her vague memory of what her grandmother used to sing, close to 50 years ago. All I can remember is that first line, which is also the last line, and it sound like that I've put in the thread title, "Parla mi d'amore, Mariu." Then there's words like "tutta" and "brilliano." Can anybody help? thanks.

I found out that it's listed as "Parlami d'amore, Mariu" on one of the Three Tenors CD's, but I don't happen to have that CD. Anybody happen to have the CD, and does it have printedlyrics you can post for me? I found a recording on a Reader's Digest CD, but no lyrics - and I can't quite make out the whole song. Supposedly, it's a Sicilian folk song.

Joe, I know this song, it is very popular in Italy among elder people (I'm nearly 50 so I put myself among them). It was written by a songwriter named Bixio back in 1932. I can't help you with the lyric as I can remember only sparse verses.

If you search the web, you will find several interesting sites. I jus had a look at some of them, and found three with WAV or RA file, but no lyric yet. The web at the present is so sloooow here, so I can't search deeper. Maybe you could have more luck.

This is IMPORTANT: the exact spelling of the song is:

Parlami d'amore Mariù

Please note that Parlami it a whole word and Mariù should have accent on the u (maybe the search could yeld good results also with a non-accented u)

If you search Altavista with "Parlami d'amore Mariù" you will get 24 hits. Please note the quotes - they force Altavista to search for the 'exact phrase'

The following pages have a link to a sound file:

Hi, Ezio - if you do come up with lyrics, let me know. I'll get what my friend has next week, and maybe you can help me correct what I have. I do have a CD with Pavarotti singing the song, but I can't make out the lyrics. If I e-mailed you a RealAudio recording, might that help? Click on my name if you want to e-mail me.

Say, for an international song, maybe I should have looked at the International Lyrics Server. You won't believe how much time I wasted looking for these lyrics. Do they seem to be correct, Ezio?

PARLAMI D'AMORE MARIU'

(Bixio-Neri)

Cesare Andrea Bixio (1896-1978)



Come sei bella pi— bella stasera Mari—
Splende un sorriso di stelle sugli occhi tuoi blu
Anche se avverso il destino domani sar…
Oggi ti sono vicino perchŠ sospirar.

Parlami d'amore Mari—
Tutta la mia vita sei tu
Gli occhi tuoi belli brillano
Come due stelle scintillano.

Dimmi che illusione non Š
Dimmi che sei tutta per me
Qui sul tuo cuor non soffrir• mai pi—
Parlami d'amore Mari—.

Parlami d'amore Mari—...


Alternate:
Parlami d'amore Mari—
Tutta la mia vita sei tu
Gli occhi tuoi belli brillano
Fiama di sogno scintillano.

Dimmi che luzione non Š
Dimmi che sei tutta per me
Qui sul tuo core non soffro pi—
Parlami d'amore Mari—.


I'm not sure which version is correct, and my e-mail to Ezio got sent back, so I wasn't able to check with him. Haven't heard from him lately.

The composer and songwriter Cesare Andrea Bixio (1896-1978), early proved to be a very talented entrepreneur as well as a refined artist and founded the publishing Group that goes by his name back in the 20s. After scoring his first hits, among which the soundtrack of the first Italian talking movie, La Canzone dell'Amore, he worked intensely gathering around him a group of young talented artist which were to become the forefront of the renewal of the Italian song. Year after year, Gruppo Bixio has made its presence felt in the world of music with a repertoire ranging from the famous songs of the past to Italy's best known soundtracks, down to pop and Sanremo hits.

Dear Joe, here you are the exact lyrics (100% sure!) of the song as sung by Pavarotti in the file you sent.
I've replaced the accented wovels by the wovel followed by the ' character, to avoid problems due to keyboard layouts on different machines.
I'm sorry if I missed and did not answer to some previus threads, but I'm hard-pressed by work and I've little spare time now. Therefore, that I can haunt the Forum irregularly - much less than I would...
Ciao!

From: Jim Dixon
Date: 18 Feb 05 - 10:06 PM

allmusic lists 48 recordings of PARLAMI D'AMORE MARIÙ.

Words, Ennio Neri. Music, Cesare Andrea Bixio (1896-1978)

You can see sheet music at this Argentinian tango website, where it is translated into Spanish as HABLAME DE AMORES MARIÚ.

There is a midi file on this page.

There are French lyrics here: PARLEZ-MOI D'AMOUR MON AMOUR

PARLEZ-MOI D'AMOUR MON AMOUR

Parlez-moi d'amour mon amour
Redis- moi les mots de toujours
Même si les mots ont bien changé
Ils ne semblent pas si démodés
Tant que le ciel existera
On dira toujours ces mots-là
Tant qu'il y aura des amoureux
On échangera des aveux

Comme les chalands n'en finiront jamais de passer
Les goélands n'en finiront jamais de voler
Comme le printemps fait toujours refleurir les lilas
L'amour m'a mis dans tes bras ah ah ah

Même si les mots ont bien changé
Ils ne sont pas si démodés
Ils ont fait des peines aux parents
Ils feront rêver nos enfants
Tant que la terre tournera
Parle-moi d'amour, mon amour


(Ennio Neri / carlo-Andrea Bixio / Pascal Sevran) - 1976

Here's another English translation, but I don't know if it's meant to be sung. Copied from The Lied and Art Song Texts Page:

How beautiful you are, more than ever this evening, Mariù!
A smile is twinkling like a star in your blue eyes.
Even if the fates should be contrary tomorrow,
Today I am with you; why be sad?
Do not think about it!

Speak to me of love, Mariù!
I live only for you!
Your lovely eyes shine brightly;
They flash with a dreaming fire!
Tell me that this is no illusion;
Tell me that you are all mine!
Here in your arms I suffer no more.
Speak to me of love, Mariù!

Your lovely eyes shine brightly, etc.

It must be a female first name in a southern dialect, because "bella" applies to female nouns only. In particular, it is not the male Mario. "Marion" may be a French equivalent known in English too.

Note that the rest of the lyrics is standard Italian, so that the song can be described as pseudo-southern.
