Tonight's Music

Tonight we depart from our normal Celtic/Medieval/folk format to bring you a swing song called Americano from the Brian Setzer Orchestra. This is in honor of our newest Hillbilly Ecosystem member RumoredeiMieiVenti. The song is about those young European men who became enamored with America from their contact with the GI's who liberated Europe during WWII.

This song was featured in the movie The Talented Mr. Ripley in which the stars Matt Damon and Jude Law perform the song in Italian.
