Peppino Gagliardi – Un Amore Grande

Italian vocalist, lyricist and composer Peppino Gagliardi sings “Un Amore Grande” (A great love) and takes us to the romantic Venice, the capital of love.

There was a big “Love Song” storm in Europe during the 60s and 70s, with Italy as the eye of the storm. The most beautiful Love lyrics and melodies were being made and performed by singers who not only had special vocal talents, but were also able to express themselves from the depths of their heart and soul. They were real vocalists with real emotions, feeling every note and every word of the music.

The artists still remaining to this day from that era are priceless and often irreplaceable. Peppino, certainly falls under the category of irreplaceables. He is still performing on occasion in Italy and elsewhere in Europe.

Un Amore Grande, as in most Peppino Gagliardi recordings, was recorded live in studio with a grand orchestra, and a comprehensive string section. Live in studio refers to recording with a full orchestra in the studio. The beautiful Italian words add even more colors to this timeless classic.

Peppino started singing in the mid 60’s. His popularity peaked in the early 70’s with such hits as Come Le Viole and Ti Amo Cosi.

Lyrics

Un Amore Grande

Un amore grande,
grande come il mondo.
Mi portavi la bellezza di un mattino,
un sorriso nei miei occhi,
un sorriso che oramai non c’è più.

Eri un amore grande,
grande più del mondo.
Cancellavi con un attimo di vita
tutto il triste mio passato
come all’alba nasce un giorno dalla notte.

Prima c’eri tu,
oggi quante notti passo ad aspettare,
quanti versi improvviso nel sognare
stringendo un cuscino fra le braccia
e rivedo te.

Che eri un amore grande,
grande più del mondo.
Mi portavi la bellezza di un mattino
un sorriso nei miei occhi,
un sorriso che oramai non c’è più.

Prima c’eri tu,
oggi quante notti passo ad aspettare,
quanti versi improvviso nel sognare
stringendo un cuscino fra le braccia
e rivedo te.

Che eri un amore grande,
grande più del mondo.
Mi portavi la bellezza di un mattino
un sorriso nei miei occhi,
un sorriso che oramai non c’è più.

A Great Love

A great love,
Big as the world
You used to bring me the beauty of a morning
A smile on front of my eyes
A smile that is no longer here now

You were a great love
Bigger than the world
With a moment of life you erased
The whole my sad past
Like at dawn a new day comes to life from the night

You were here before
Now i spend so many nights waiting
I improvise so many verses as I dream
Holding a pillow in my arms
And I see you again.

That were a great love
Bigger than the world
You used to bring me the beauty of a morning
A smile on my eyes
A smile that is no longer here now

You were here before
Now I spend so many nights waiting
I improvise so many verses as I dream
Holding a pillow in my arms
And I see you again

That were a great love
Bigger than the world
You used to bring me the beauty of a morning
A smile on my eyes
A smile that is no longer here now.
