Top 10 Italian Songs Of All Time

It is well known that Italy plays a leading role in the global musical panorama, and not just in Italian movies or restaurants. Did you know that listening to Italian music can actually help you learn Italian?

It is interesting to note that in about 3 minutes, a good song could turn your day around and make your day a happy one. Whether you are listening to the radio in the car, or perhaps even in the shower, a melodious song can deeply touch the heart of the listener. Then there are certain songs that are so memorable it's impossible to get them out of your head and out of your heart. 

It wasn't easy to create such a list because every person has his own opinion, but after a slow process of elimination and selection, we have created for you a list of the Top Ten Italian Songs Of All Times. We hope you will like this list: 

1) Lucio Dalla – Caruso 
2) Adriano Celentano – Azzurro
3) Umberto Tozzi - Ti Amo

9) Vasco Rossi – Albachiara
10) Giuseppe Verdi - La Forza del Destino

But like we said, it was hard to narrow it down to ten. So we've actually included another 35 pieces to the list (make that Top 45 Italian Songs).

Of course there is a chance that you may not entirely agree with the above list, as the list has been categorized from popular choice and the time it stayed on the charts. But, no matter what, the selection here is subjective and some of these songs are recognized classics. In other words, this just happens to be popular opinion. Now if you happen to be a teenager, there is a high probability that you would have never heard about most of these songs and in all likelihood may not like them. Whether you're interested in Italian music for pleasure, culture, or education, listen to them at least once, as they are definitely worth your while.

Choosing only 10 songs out of such a huge musical heritage is practically impossible. We hope you enjoyed the list, but if your favorite Italian song didn't make the list, just let us know in the comments.
