Music Box

Piero Barone, Gianluca Ginoble, Ignazio Boschetto

Everytime I hear Il Volo I swoon. In this new dawn of boy bands, this triple threat of Italian tenors, with voices of angels –and, might I remind you, they’re Italian– well, they’re a personal dream come true for a culture-nerd and opera-loving teen such as me. And what’s more, they’re coming to my hometown this September!!! I’m absolutely ecstatic, and so for this Daily Delight enjoy two performances of theirs. It’s bliss.

This music is to your ears what un pain au chocolat avec un cafe is to your tastebuds. It’s like a stroll along the Seine, or the soft melody of a French accordion. Click the picture above and drift away.

And I’ll actually be drifting right over there in less than a week! I leave for Paris and London next Sunday (extremely excited, I can’t even begin to express) and I wanted to share some of my favorite tunes that I’ve been listening to lately to get me in the proper mindset. All these songs sing lovingly to the romanticist in me.

If anyone’s been to either city, lives there, or knows any tips/good places to eat, please let me know!

If you want an easy energy rush to put you in the right mindset this weekend, this mix is for you. I’m personally feeling great. A blizzard just swept through town and in tradition of winter comfort food I had myself some homemade chili for lunch. A happy tummy, a winter wonderland, two cozy blankets, and some good music equals a perfect, lazy Saturday.
