    you talk about what to do?

    mamma mia ai ai ai. ok taking into account my appalling below gcse vocab levels....something to do with women. i think. it's very coloquial/dialectial though. and it's all in formal address...some sort of petrarchan sonnet type thing perhaps?

    on the whole, utterly confusing but thanks...my translation skills are pretty shoddy, would help if i'd actually looked at my italian reading :rolleyes:
    It is opera, you're bound not to be able to do quite a bit of it.

    Right, well I don't understand any of that but I have the EMI Maria Callas said to be one of the best recording of it. On real can-touch-them CDs. I hate music files cause I lost all of mine (
    That's the one I borrowed. I saved it as CD Image to avoid any loss of quality.

    Wah! I can't keep up! And what's worse, all the music I can think about right now is the theme tune from Tiny Planets! I took me ages to read up to here, and everytime I refresh the page there's like 3 more posts! I'm having a UKL (sorry, TSR) overload! :eek:
    That's ok, neither can we, it just looks like we can.

    Edit: aha it's from an opera

    It's a servant telling an aristocratic woman (who his master has slept with) about all the women who his master has ****ed - ends up repeating "in espagna mille e tre" rather a lot

    lots of things in Mozart boil down to sex and **** - often a combination of the two if you read his letters. He was into copraphilia/faecophilia (I know the two words mean the same but I don't know which one you peoplee will be familiar with)
