[sings] For this is the night

It’s a beautiful night

And we call it bella notte

Look at the skies

They have stars in their eyes

On this lovely bella notte

Side by side

With your loved one

You’ll find enchantment here

The night will weave its magic spell

When the one you love is near

For this is the night

And the heavens are right

On this lovely

Bella notte

This is the night

It’s a beautiful night

And we call it

Bella notte…

The Daily Dialogue theme for the week: Mealtime. Today’s recommendation by Gisela Wehrl.

Trivia: Walt Disney originally didn’t want to include the ‘Bella Note’ spaghetti-eating scene, now one of the most iconic moments in the whole Disney canon.

Dialogue On Dialogue: Though Lady and the Tramp can speak within the movie, they keep silent within that scene as the humans cannot understand their words. But Tony understands them anyway: Good Food and a romantic song are coming. A Boy and a girl in a restaurant with the stars shining above them, there is no need to talk them.

For me as a child, it was the most romantic scene of all: You want your love to eat the last meatball.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
