About Se Telefonando

"Se Telefonando" is a song performed by the Italian singer Mina, released in May 1966. The music was composed, orchestrated and conducted by Ennio Morricone to Italian lyrics by Ghigo De Chiara and Maurizio Costanzo. (Reportedly Costanzo only contributed one word, in editing a previous version of a verse, to avoid censorship). The song was written for a television broadcast, called “Aria condizionata”. It was a standout track of Mina’s Studio Uno 66, the fifth-biggest-selling album of the year 1966 in Italy, which sold over a million copies worldwide. Morricone's sophisticated arrangement of "Se telefonando" was a combination of melodic trumpet lines, Hal Blaine–style drumming, a string set, a '60s Europop female choir, and intensive subsonic-sounding trombones. The main theme of the song thrills around just three notes, taken from the siren of a police car in Marseilles. The Italian Hitparade #7 song had eight transitions of tonality building tension throughout the chorus. In late 1966, Mina recorded an English version of the song for United Artists's release in English speaking countries. In the reader's poll conducted by the la Repubblica newspaper to celebrate Mina's 70th anniversary in 2010, 30,000 voters picked the track as the best song ever recorded by Mina.

Lo stupore della notte
Spalancata
Sul mar
Ci sorprese che eravamo sconosciuti io e te
Poi nel buio le tue mani
D'improvviso
Sulle mie
È cresciuto troppo in fretta
Questo nostro
Amor

Se telefonando io potessi dirti addio
Ti chiamerei
Se io rivedendoti fossi certa che non soffri
Ti rivedrei
Se guardandoti negli occhi sapessi dirti basta
Ti guarderei

Ma non so spiegarti
Che il nostro amore appena nato
È già finito
Se telefonando io volessi dirti addio
Ti chiamerei
Se io rivedendoti fossi certa che non soffri
Ti rivedrei

Se guardandoti negli occhi sapessi dirti basta
Ti guarderei
Ma non so spiegarti
Che il nostro amore appena nato
È già finito
