Toto Cutugno’s ‘L’Italiano’ is the Restaurant Santa Lucia Song of the Day!

L’Italiano has been on our playlist since day one.

The classic Italian song!

Let me sing!

L’Italiano (Lasciatemi Cantare)” (commonly known as “L’Italiano“) is an Italian pop song by Toto Cutugno released in 1983. It was his biggest international hit and is his best-known composition. The song was forgotten during the 1990s and was re-discovered when Toto Cutugno performed it live at a charity concert in Rome commemorating Italy’s victory at the 2006 FIFA World Cup, creating a new wave of popularity for this song.[1]

‘Summertime’ by Charlie Parker is the Restaurant Santa Lucia Song of the Day!

Summertime in Montréal means Jazz, food and fun!

Here is one of the greats playing Summertime!

Summertime” is an aria composed in 1934 by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward, the author of the novel Porgy on which the opera was based, although the song is also co-credited to Ira Gershwin by ASCAP.

The song soon became a popular and much recorded jazz standard, described as “without doubt … one of the finest songs the composer ever wrote … Gershwin’s highly evocative writing brilliantly mixes elements of jazz and the song styles of blacks in the southeast United States from the early twentieth century”.[2] Composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim has characterized Heyward’s lyrics for “Summertime” and “My Man’s Gone Now” as “the best lyrics in the musical theater”.[3] The song is recognized as one of the most covered songs in the history of recorded music, with more than 33,000 covers by groups and solo performers.

Elvis Presley’s ‘Suspicious Minds’ is Restaurant Santa Lucia Song of the Day!

The King does it again!

Oh we love our Elvis here at Santa Lucia!

Suspicious Minds” is an American song written and first recorded by American songwriter Mark James. After James’ recording failed commercially, the song was handed to Elvis Presley by producer Chips Moman, becoming a number one song in 1969, and one of the most notable hits of Presley’s career. “Suspicious Minds” was widely regarded as the single that returned Presley’s career success, following his ’68 Comeback Special. It was his eighteenth and last number-one single in the United States. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked it No. 91 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.[citation needed] Session guitarist Reggie Young played on both the James and Presley versions.
