The gypsy song
What was the title of the gypsy song they danced the tango to?share
It sounds a lot like "Serenade in the Night", originally recorded in the 1930's. There are very many recordings to choose from if you want one. However, it may be a different song with a similar melody. Ed Agnewshare
Carlooto-1 has solved the mystery. "Violino Tzigano" is the same song as "Serenade in the Night", the title being changed for english speakers. I thought so. I checked several recordings on Amazon to confirm the the melody was the same.share
This is a wonderful scene and I've fallen in love with the tango song. As Carlooto says it's 'Violino Tzigano' sung by Joselito - here's a link to him singing it, though I'm not sure which film this is from:
The lyrics are here:
and there's another wonderful rendition of it by Meme Bianchi here:
Both are good though quite different renditions, imo.
Beware the English version of "Serenade in the Night" though. Apparently the lyrics are completely different - not a translation at all.
