About Piove

"Piove (Ciao, ciao bambina)" (It's raining [Bye, bye baby]) is an Italian song written by Domenico Modugno and Eduardo Verde. It won first prize at the 1959 Sanremo Music Festival, where it was performed twice, once by Modugno and once by Johnny Dorelli. The song was chosen as the Italian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1959 and Domenico Modugno was chosen to perform it. The song is a dramatic ballad, with Modugno telling his lover that he knows their relationship is about to come to a close. He asks her for one more kiss and then tells her not to turn back as she walks away from him, because he still has feelings for her. The song was performed third on the night, following Denmark's Birthe Wilke with "Uh, jeg ville ønske jeg var dig" and preceding Monaco's Jacques Pills with "Mon ami Pierrot". At the close of voting, it had received 9 points, placing 6th in a field of 11. It was succeeded as Italian representative at the 1960 Contest by Renato Rascel with "Romantica". In 1959 the song entered the Hong Kong Hit Parade after being recorded by a local group - The Yee Tin Tong Mandolin Band - released by the Diamond Records Company ('B' side - Oh Marie) and must have been one of the strangest versions of the composition ever issued.

Mille violini suonati dal vento
Tutti i colori dell'arcobaleno
Vanno a fermare una pioggia d'argento
Ma piove, piove sul nostro amor

Ciao, ciao, bambina, un bacio ancora
E poi per sempre ti perderò
Come una fiaba, l'amore passa
C'era una volta poi non c'è più

Cos'è che trema sul tuo visino?
È pioggia o pianto? Dimmi cos'è
Vorrei trovare parole nuove
Ma piove, piove sul nostro amor

(Ciao, bambina)
(Ti voglio bene da morire)
(Ciao, ciao)

Ciao, ciao, bambina, non ti voltare
Non posso dirti rimani ancor
Vorrei trovare parole nuove
Ma piove, piove sul nostro amor
