Another unusual feature about this song was that it used an extract from Funiculi, Funicula, which was credited on the music sheet.
It has produced another shoe-string budget musical video entitled, "The Three Terrors: Jihad is Sweet, Jihad is Fun" -- based on a famous musical production of The Three Tenors (Luciano Pavarotti, Pl=E1cido Domingo and Jos=E9 Carreras) singing "Funiculi, Funicula." It may be viewed at www.canaancommunications.us (the aliyah blog of Golan Canaan).
Thus "Sing, Sing, Sing," "In the Mood," and "Pistol-Packin' Mama"--all popular wartime hits--were interspersed with "O Mio Babbino Caro," "Santa Lucia," and "Funiculi, Funicula," representing outdated, more traditional music.
Hence the setlist included the tried and tested, including Verdi's La Donna E Mobile from Rigoletto, sacred arias such as Schubert's Ave Maria and Franck's Panis Angelicus, and a rousing Funiculi Funicula.
The album presents the most beautiful Italian melodies, such as 'Santa Lucia,' 'Funiculi Funicula,' 'Mamma' and others, many of which were accompanied by the Milan Symphony Orchestra.
The antennae from 4 males and 4 females were mounted, with the flattened interior surface of the funiculi exposed.
Por su parte, Borja en su emblema "Funiculi vanitatum" [Los lazos de la vanidad], expresa en su comentario:
If you go, expect to hear a few people humming something that sounds a lot like the lively Italian tune "Funiculi Funicula" but be ready for lyrics that may take you by surprise.
Songs include traditional children's songs like "Mary Had a Little Lamb," "Go Tell Aunt Rhody" and "Eency Weency Spider;" spirituals like "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," "Go Tell It on the Mountain" and "All My Trials;" and standards like "After the Ball is Over," "Funiculi, Funicula" and "Annie Laurie." Other songs include "America, the Beautiful" and "Star-Spangled Banner," folk songs like "Freight Train" and "Hava Nagila," Christmas songs like "Away in a Manger" and "Jingle Bells," and favorite hymns like "Amazing Grace" and "Be Thou My Vision," among many others.
The chosen songs are only those that the three men sang together, and they include among others, "O sole mio," "Funiculi, funicula," "Libiamo ne" lieti calici (Brindsi)," "Brazil," "Torna a Surriento," "Nessun dorma," and "La donna e mobile." Of course, there are also the silly bits of American pop material sung in English, most of which are fun but not particularly thrilling; things like "Because," "You'll Never Walk Alone," "Maria," and their eminently forgettable rendition of "Singin" in the Rain." Remember, this is an album that documents a trio of events, not to be confused with a album of classic music.
