It’s one of those lazy Saturdays where I’m just cleaning my house and listening to some terrible Italian music that was popular when I was living in Siena in 2004. Man, this crap was playing in every shop, every restaurant, even in the Post Office. And somehow, no matter which piazza I found myself in, I could always hear some Tiziano Ferro playing from somewhere. Maybe it was pumped around town through the sewer system.

Even though it’s pretty awful music, it wiggled its way to a special place in my heart. First, listening to this garbage definitely helped me learn Italian (and somehow, I still remember most of the words). And second, every time I hear it, I’m transported back to a really great few months I spent living in one of the most beautiful little towns in all of Italy.
