In August of 1959, Italian singer Connie Francis traveled to London to record her album Connie Francis Sings Italian Favorites. The album was finished in November of the same year and was quickly a huge success.

The album was on the top charts for over 81 weeks and is still known as her most successful work. Her song, ‘Mama’ below is one of the most beautiful songs to date.

When the evening shadows fall
And the lovely day is through
Then with longing I recall
The years I spent with you

Mamma solo per te la mia canzone vola 
Mamma sarai con me tu non sarai più sola 

Quanto ti voglio bene 
Queste parole d’amore 
Che ti sospira il mio cuore 
Forse non si usano più 
Ah mamma 
Ma la canzone mia più bella sei tu 
Sei tu la vita e per la vita non ti lascio mai più

Safe in the glow of your love
Sent from the heavens above
Nothing can ever replace
The warmth of your tender embrace

Oh, mamma
Until the day that we’re together once more
I’ll live in these memories
Until the day that we’re together once more
