"Quando, Quando, Quando" is an Italian pop song dating from the early 1960s, written by Alberto Testa and Tony Renis (sometimes credited under his birth name Elio Cesari). Renis made the song famous.

English versions

It has frequently been performed in English translation, with lyrics by Ervin Drake. The title translates as "When, When, When". Quando is the only Italian word normally retained in the English version, although some performers add another Italian word or phrase.

The song has been used and remixed by many artists and in many different advertisements. The most notable rendition in English was by pop singer Engelbert Humperdinck. In 2005, Nelly Furtado performed the song as a duet with Michael Bublé. There is an instrumental Latin version by Edgardo Cintron and The Tiempos Noventa Orchestra. The song was a 1962 Billboard Top 100 entry by Pat Boone.

In popular culture


The song was used in the movie The Blues Brothers 1980: when Jake and Elwood first encounter Murph and The Magictones, they are playing this song at the Holiday Inn.

It was also used in 2008 in the Fiat Punto advertisements mimicking the 'Italian Job'

Engelbert Humperdinck (born Arnold George Dorsey, May 2, 1936, Madras, India) is a well-known British-American pop singer who rose to international fame during the 1960s and 1970s, after adopting the name of the famous German opera composer Engelbert Humperdinck as his own stage name.

Quando, Quando, Quando - Tony Renis

Και το αρχικό ιταλικό τραγούδι:





Quando Quando Quando

Dimmi quando tu verrai,
dimmi quando... quando... quando...
l'anno, il giorno e l'ora in cui
forse tu mi bacerai...

Ogni istante attenderò,
fino a quando... quando... quando...
d'improvviso ti vedrò
sorridente accanto a me!

Se vuoi dirmi di sì
devi dirlo perchè
non ha senso per me
la mia vita senza te...

Dimmi quando tu verrai,
dimmi quando... quando... quando...
e baciandomi dirai,
"Non ci lasceremo mai!"

Se vuoi dirmi di sì
devi dirlo perchè
non ha senso per me
la mia vita senza te...

Dimmi quando tu verrai,
dimmi quando... quando... quando...
e baciandomi dirai,
"Non ci lasceremo mai!"

Ρετρό διάθεση απόψε παρατηρώ, Wings.

Aυτή την τελευταία εκτέλεση δεν την είχα υπόψη μου και το ντουέτο μου φάνηκε περίεργο, επειδή η Furtado είναι από την Πορτογαλία, αλλά και οι δυό τους έχουν Καναδική υπηκοότητα και μάλλον αυτό ήταν που τους έφερε κοντά!

Μα, είμαι άνθρωπος για όλες τις εποχές. Συνδυάζω το κλασικό με το μοντέρνο, βουνό με θάλασσα, και πάει λέγοντας... Ενίοτε ικανοποιώ και εξωφορουμικές επιθυμίες. :-)

Μπράβο, βρε ρομαντική Βίκυ! Όσο για τις εξωφορουμικές επιθυμίες, οι δικές μου είναι πολύ... απαιτητικές!

Κι οι δικές μου. Μάλλον, όμως, καλά τα καταφέρνουμε ως τώρα, ε;
