Bella d'estate - a duo Mika and Michele Bravi - released 28/08/2020

Translation from Italian:

 

My new Italian single comes out at midnight! Great inspirations are born from the love for beautiful music! I recorded a cover of the fantastic song Bella d’Estate that Mango wrote with Lucio Dalla in the 1980s. With me in this new version there is @michelebravi: we had fun in a duet that will surprise you! Production by @thekatoo

I hope there is a video .....  Because if they only did a photoshoot to choose the worst one for the cover.....it's quite a shame 

they look like two wanted men😍😆

Tell me about it...    Me on Thursday: being disappointed that one of the new songs is just a cover Also me: waiting till midnight to hear it and listening to it multiple times over the

It's funny like this song sounds for me a litte bit like Sanremo, Even the lyrics.

 

È solo un addio
Credimi io non ci penso mai
Vedo che hai pianto
Tu lo sapevi ma da quando?
Bella d'estate vai
Via da me
Notte d'incanto
È bello vedere le luci laggiù
Io sono stanco
Non voglio parlare, parla tu
Bella d'estate vai
Via da me
Forse perché ti credevo felice così
Proprio così fra le mie braccia
Forse perché ci bastava arrivare fin qui
Come onde di notte sulla spiaggia
Oh, la la la la la la
Oh, la la la la la la
Piccoli fuochi
Noi siamo zingari di periferia
I nostri son giochi
Che durano poco
E la notte se li porta via
Bella d'estate vai
Via da me
Forse perché ti credevo felice così
Proprio così fra le mie braccia
Forse perché ci bastava arrivare fin qui
Come onde di notte sulla spiaggia
Oh, la la la la la la
Oh, la la la la la la
Chiudi gli occhi e ti senti per sempre così
Ancora qui fra le mie braccia
Per tutti e due basterebbe tornare fin qui
Come onde di notte sulla spiaggia
 
 
 
 
English translation
 
It's just goodbye
Believe me I never think about it
I see you cried
You knew it but since when?
Beautiful in summer go
Get away from me
Enchanting night
It's nice to see the lights over there
I'm tired
I don't want to talk, you talk
Beautiful in summer go
Get away from me
Maybe because I thought you were so happy
Just like that in my arms
Perhaps because it was enough for us to get here
Like waves at night on the beach
Oh, la la la la la la
Oh, la la la la la la
Small fires
We are suburban gypsies
Ours are games
Which do not last long
And the night takes them away
Beautiful in summer go
Get away from me
Maybe because I thought you were so happy
Just like that in my arms
Perhaps because it was enough for us to get here
Like waves at night on the beach
Oh, la la la la la la
Oh, la la la la la la
Close your eyes and forever feel like this
Still here in my arms
For both of us it would be enough to go back here
Like waves at night on the beach

MIKA e MICHELE BRAVI: BELLA D'ESTATE
Annunciata a sorpresa la loro collaborazione musicale:
Disponibile dal 28 agosto su tutte le piattaforme di streaming e download. Il singolo è stato prodotto da Francesco "Katoo" Catitti.
La star internazionale Mika ha deciso di registrare una cover di “Bella d'Estate” quando stava preparando una playlist di musica italiana all’inizio di questa stagione estiva: "Quasi per caso ho riscoperto Bella d'Estate e spontaneamente, senza pianificazione, mi è venuta l'idea di cantarla. E’ una cover nata per amore della canzone stessa, per amore di Mango, ma anche di Lucio Dalla, che ha scritto il testo e di cui sono un grande ammiratore. Ho incontrato subito l'entusiasmo di Katoo per questo progetto e ci siamo divertiti a creare una rilettura rispettosa, ma in chiave contemporanea. Mentre eravamo in studio, Katoo mi ha proposto di trasformarla in un duetto e abbiamo pensato di coinvolgere Michele Bravi, con cui lui lavora da tempo, e con entusiasmo è arrivata la sua adesione. Sono stato molto felice di ritrovarlo!”
Michele Bravi si è detto “affascinato dall’attenzione che ha avuto Mika nel voler riscoprire e ripresentare al pubblico un gioiello raro della nostra musica. È un onore per me poter condividere insieme alla sua professionalità lo spazio di questa canzone, che insieme celebra l’incontro tra diverse creatività e il patrimonio musicale italiano”
Mika e Michele Bravi si sono conosciuti a X Factor nel 2013: Mika debuttava come giudice, mentre Michele era concorrente e poi vincitore di quella edizione. Successivamente si sono ritrovati nel 2016 quando Mika ha invitato Michele al suo one man show Stasera CasaMika su Raidue. Quest'anno Mika sarà di nuovo giudice a X Factor, in onda su Sky dal 17 settembre, mentre il 19 settembre terrà I ❤ Beirut , uno show speciale in streaming su YouTube per raccogliere fondi a sostegno della sua città natale, ferita dalle recenti esplosioni. Michele Bravi sta per pubblicare il suo nuovo concept album “La geografia del buio” che contiene anche il fortunato brano uscito in anteprima a Maggio “La vita breve dei coriandoli”.
Mika e Michele Bravi saranno sul paco dei Seat Music Awards in onda su Raiuno il 5 settembre dall'Arena di Verona per cantare insieme Bella d'Estate.

Sorry...

At least I like Michele, he was my favorite from XF :)  I find the original version of the song quite depressive, but we'll see, maybe the duet will have a different vibe.

And I hoped for a new Mika song, not a cover and duet.

I think many of us hoped the same, he said "two of my new songs"  :dunno:

A new candidate for the list of my least fave Mika songs. Not too fond of the original song either, the 80s vibe of that was ok, but they totally destroyed that with this electronic sound. Ah well, I can't like them all, right? :bleh:

Well I had a hectic day and evening...but just finding out about the two new songs and listened to them and kind of disappointed by both....I was expecting Mika songs, those are duets, one is a cover.

Right now I tend to like Bella d'estate better but I would prefer it with only Mika's voice and  less electronic. But although I hope bot new songs will grow on me I am not convinced they will...

I have mixed feelings about the song. I like the sound, I like Mika's voice in it. But I don't feel comfortable when Mika sings in Italian. I don't know why, perhaps it is because of his accent it feels like singing in Italian doesn't suit Mika. I don't have problems with Mika singing in French, I don't speak  both Italian and French. It's my personal thing I believe. And I so don't like Michele's voice in this song. The good thing is these's not much of Michele there. So I'd prefer this song to be without Michele and in English, like Center of Gravity. But we can't have everything we want, can we? :wink2:

Same here, and I'm more than sure that this time they won't grow on me at all, it's just not Mika :(
