Solitaire

I think the songs that remain are all quite strong. Vocally the whole album is strong, but sometimes you dislike a song for whatever reason.

Me oh my Tacom - I'm fast going off you ......  :rofl2:

Disappointed with She Was Beautiful and Il Mio Cuore Va going out  :cry:

Got to be Time To Say Goodbye for me. When he gets his breathing right, live, then I'll put it further up the list as it's a nice enough song.

Sorry Jude  :tissue:

When I hear Solitaire I still hear the original, and the pace is too slow for me. His vocals are excellent I think.

TTSG is also a bit repetative, but more melodramatic...and I love that  :D

7th: Time To Say Goodbye (Con Te Partiro) (6/16 37.5%)



I always used to think this was a sad, depressing song, based on the title in English.  :blush:

The song is meant to be about going together with the one you love. It's not about leaving someone...the two are embarking on a journey together. I think that they shouldn't have changed the name to "Time to Say Goodbye".

Results so far:
7th: Time To Say Goodbye(Con Te Partiro) (6/16 37.5%)
8th: Il Mio Cuore Va (My Heart Will Go On) (7/16 43.8%)
9th: She Was Beautiful (8/16 - 50%)
10th: I Dreamed a Dream (8/22 36.4%)
11th: Va Pensiero (9/19 - 47.4%)
12th: Hear My Prayer

Yay :pompoms: "Nessun Dorma" now. These songs are all flawless though.

TTSG is high on the funeral top 10 here in Holland, so I think a lot of people here think its about saying goodbye  ;)

Solitaire for me of course  :D

Has to be Canto for me. He sings Nessun Dorma better, probably because he had more training with it.

The best track on the album only coming sixth :noway: :cry:

At 2:53 when Joe hits that high note and then the choir kicking in... :swoon: it has to be the most beautiful sound/moment/experience of any song this planet has to offer and I love all types of music (maybe a bit exaggerated but still..... :tongue:). It's so emotive, moving, inspirational, I can always count on it to change me inside for the better in any given situation. :inlove:



Voted Nessun Dorma again!

Apart from voting for ND I absolutely agree with you BR.
CDT is my favorite as well, I love the whole track, I love how it takes you away on that journey this song is for me..low notes, high notes, strong middle notes, choir... absolutely love it and it still gives me goosebumps every time, this recorded version and all the live versions.

OT Voted Solitaire.

It's interesting how different we all are.
For me, CDT is the worst of classical crossover with its pseudo-operatic style, drum kit backing and ott choir. The only thing that makes it any good is that Joe is singing it, but even then there's a couple of little deficiencies which bring it below the level of most of the tracks. When most of the tracks are perfect, the few that aren't have to go out early.
Still  :jawdrop: at She Was Beautiful going so early. Now that was perfection  :inlove:
