O Sole Mio

by Eduardo Di Capua & Giovanni Capurro

Italian Lyrics

O sole mio1

Che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole,
N’aria serena doppo na tempesta!
Pe’ ll’aria fresca pare gia’ na festa…
Che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole.
Ma n’atu soleCchiu’ bello, oi ne’.
‘O sole mioSta ‘nfronte a te!
‘O sole, ‘o sole mioSta ‘nfronte a te!
Sta ‘nfronte a te!
Quanno fa notte e ‘o soleSe ne scenne,
Me vene quase ‘na malincunia;
Sotto ‘a fenesta toia restarria
Quanno fa notte e ‘o soleSe ne scenne.
Ma n’atu soleCchiu’ bello, oi ne’.
‘O sole mioSta…

Translated into English

“It’s Now or Never”
O sole mio2
What a wonderful thing a sunny day
The serene air after a thunderstorm
The fresh air, and a party is already going on…
What a wonderful thing a sunny day.
But another sun,that’s brighter still
It’s my own sunthat’s in your face!
The sun, my own sunIt’s in your face!
It’s in your face!
When night comes and the sun has gone down,
I start feeling blue;
I’d stay below your window
When night comes and the sun has gone down.
But another sun,that’s brighter still
It’s my own sunthat’s in your face!
The sun, my own sunIt’s in your face!
It’s in your face!

The song “O Sole Mio” is a famous 1898 composition by Eduardo Di Capua. The text was written by Giovanni Capurro. The most popular version, “It’s Now or Never,” was performed by Elvis Presley.  In 1961, while becoming the first person to ever orbit the earth, Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin hummed “O Sole Mio. As of 2002, the song’s yearly royalties were estimated to be at least $250,000.The Creation and History of “O Sole Mio” “O Sole Mio” is often referred to as a Neapolitan song. Neapolitan songs were songs written for an annual songwriting contest for the Festival of Piedigrotta, which began in 1830, in Naples, Italy.
“O Sole Mio” was composed by Eduardo Di Capua in Odessa during April 1898. Setting his music to the poem by Giovanni Capurro, Di Capua drew his inspiration while touring Crimea with his father (a violinist street musician). Di Capua and Capurro sold the rights of the song to the Bideri publishing house for 25 lire.The Third Author “O Sole Mio” had a third author. Emanuele Alfredo Mazzucchi helped Di Capua write the music of “O Sole Mio,” however, he did not sign the manuscript. Mazzucchi didn’t much mind to remain the silent third author while much of the world performed and enjoyed the song. It wasn’t until his death in 1972 that his heirs filed a claim stating that he was an author of the song (along with 17 others he helped Di Capua write). Finally, in 2002, an Italian judge ruled in favor of the Mazzucchi heirs. They now own the rights to “O Sole Mio” until 2042 and will collect those glorious royalties.
