There are tons of his videos on youtube, freakin hilarious I can't decide whether he's serious or not.

Here's Mama Cass of "The Mamas and the Papas", well-known for the song "California Dreaming", in the song "Dream a little dream of me".



I thought Mama Cass was the original singer of this song until I ran across a rendition by the great Louis Armstrong. However, Mama Cass's credit was in turning it into a hit in 1968.

I know of this song, but prefer the rendition by The Hollies.

I posted the worldclass song "Besame Mucho" in another thread,

Searching youtube, I found that Elvis Presley also covered this song in English. Even the Beatles covered this song! However, they better stuck to their own songs, I think.

These three young men will be the future heartthrobs of the opera world.
Note their ages as they start to sing.
A little info about the song itself

The annnouncer was so distracting I couldn't see the singers until she left the stage!

Anyway, they are pretty good, though I know no Italian. I have heard this song in English, but what is it? Another thing to research on the Web. Oops, forgot that a link was already provided for my convenience.

Does this "sound" familiar after watching the trio of Italian young men?

It's now or never,
Come hold me tight,
Kiss me my darling,
Be mine tonight....
Tomorrow may be too late
It's now or never
My love won't wait.

How depressing! You need something to cheer you up. This ought to do it. :
