Funny Italian Song

I took a trip to New York in January of 2017 in order to spend a month with my grandfather and celebrate his 93rd birthday.

Even in his old age he expressed his love for me by feeding me Italian food every day!

While I was there, my cousin let me use her Macbook pro and her acoustic guitar so I could get some creative juices flowing.

Since I could not speak or sing Italian, I did the best I could at writing and recording a spontaneous American Funk Rock / Italian Folk song.

I used nothing more than a lap top with an old version of garage band, and an acoustic guitar.

I did not even have a microphone to plug in.

When I thought back to my childhood, I remembered the few Italian phrases my grandparents taught me: open the door, close the door, open the window, and close the window.

I decided to use these simple phrases as a theme for the song since they were the only Italian phrases I remembered.

While recording, my grandpa got a little irritated with me, since he wasn&apos;t able to make sense of what I was doing.

To be honest, I couldn&apos;t make much sense of what I was doing either, but after sitting in the house for weeks I was determined to be productive in some way or another.

The song was silly and disorganized to say the least, but a lot of family members seemed to enjoy it.

A friend suggested that I shoot a music video for it, which is exactly what I did.

After I returned home to Florida, I chipped away at various scenes little by little over the next four months until the video was almost done.

The last thing it needed was an accordion sound, which a friend of mine was planning to add.

However, this morning, I woke up to the sad news that my grandpa passed away.

Knowing that I would not be able to continue editing after this, I decided there was no better time to finalize the project and publish it in loving memory of my dear grandfather Angelo Colella.

I love you with all my heart grandpa, and I trust that you are in God&apos;s hands.
