I love the music of Andrea Bocelli.

  • Nov 15, 2011
I will probably never get to see Andrea Bocelli perform live in Central Park.  Listening to this disc is the next best thing.  I don't categorize him as just an opera singer.  He can sing any kind of song perfectly.  This disc is proof of that.  I love his duet with Tony Bennett entitled "New York New York"  This song is a celebration of a great state.  "Funiculi Funicula" is a song with an upbeat playful tone.  I like this song a lot.  "Di Quella Pira" is a song that makes my spirit soar.  This is a kind of song that gets me motivated to try something difficult.   His duet entitled "The Prayer" with Celine Dion is a highlight on this disc.  This song restores my faith in the power of prayer.  "Ave Maria" is a song that touches my heart.  I love his version of this song.  "La Donna e Mobile" makes me wants me find a partner and dance around the floor.  More is a Sinatra song, but Andrea makes it his own.  This tune is very romantic.  Chris Botti lends his talents playing the trumpet on this track.  I absolutely love this song.  Andrea puts his spin on the gospel song "Amazing Grace".  This song really moves me. "Volare" is a song with a swooning romantic tone.   The music on this disc is superb.
