RAI UNO -THE ITALIAN TELEVISION PERFORMANCES- PART 5

rai-uno

From 1968 to 1971 during her marriage to her Italian husband, Shirley Bassey did a few performances for the Italian television.

Today another performance from 1969: Concerto d’autunno (Autumn concert) Written by C. Bargoni / Danpa.

Released in 1969 on an Italian Single (UA 3170, with “(You Are) My Way Of Life” on the B-side). On the single “Canzonissima ’69” it is noted which obviously means that Shirley Bassey sang this song at that Italian music festival 1969.

Dal 1968 al 1971, Shirley Bassey appare a Rai Uno.
Quando lei si e’ sposata con il suo marito italiano, lei ha fatto un tour per tutto il paese per avvicinarsi ai suoi fans itialiani. Lei ha prodotto 11 canzoni in italiano e Norman Newell ha trovato anche nella radio italiana alcuni dei suoi grandi successi tali “Natali” e “La Vita” (This is my life).”

Lyrics:  (with English translation)

Guarda le foglie morte
Look at the barren leaves
Portate via dal vento
Carried away by the wind
Si sente un brivido nel cuor
One can feel a shiver in one’s heart

Nel cielo tutto grigio
In the sky, completely grey
Si specchia il mio tormento
My pain finds a reflection
La vita non avrà più sole
Life won’t be sunny anymore

Nell’aria senza luce
Through the lightless air
S’innalzano più tristi
The first strains of a destiny that is going to come
Le prime note di un destin che verrà
Arise sadder and sadder
L’inizio di un concerto che dice a questo cuor:
The beginning of a concert that whispers to my heart:
“L’autunno è ritornato, l’amore no”
“Autumn is back, love is not”

Nell’aria senza luce
Through the lightless air
S’innalzano più tristi
Arise sadder and sadder
Le prime note di un destin che verrà
The first strains of a destiny that is going to come
L’inizio di un concerto che dice a questo cuor:
The beginning of a concert that whispers to my heart:
“L’autunno è ritornato, l’amore no”
“Autumn is back, love is not”

(Transcribed and translated by Francesco)
