"Funiculi, Funicula"

OK, let's go way back: This popular Neapolitan song was written by Turco and Denza in 1880 to celebrate the inauguration of the first cable car to Mt. Vesuvius. Translated into English by Oxenford. The late great Mario Lanza recorded the "definitive" version.

Yesterday's answer: " Will You( Still) Love Me Tomorrow?" by the Shirelles. I'm rather partial to Frankie Valli's version.
