In the “Money Robbery” prequel “Berlin,” an Italian song attracted the eye once again: Pedro Alonso sung “Felicidad.” Let’s examine this love ballad and its message of happiness together.
In the Netflix series “Berlin,” Pedro Alonso reaches for the microphone, and we can’t help but think of the famous scene where he sings “Ti Amo” from “The Money Robbery.” This version has turned into a signature tune on the “The Money Robbery” album, standing in for one of the show’s most memorable songs other than “Bella Ciao”.
The last piece of proof is that the program’s developers like using their musical preferences to propagate the infection. In addition, it’s clear Pedro Alonso loves to sing. In the show’s storyline, when his character was in a depressing phase of disillusionment with love, he witnessed a young couple tie the knot. He had an epiphany on what to do. Tristan Uloa’s hand was grasped by Pedro Alonso, and they were given two microphones. Towards the conclusion of the seventh episode of “Berlin,” they deciphered “Felicidad,” a Spanish rendition of the well-known Italian song Al Bano and Romina Power’s “Felicit à.”, which he considered to be the ideal love song.
Felicidad is a cover of one of the most famous singles in Italian pop music history (with Spanish lyrics). The original song “Felicit à” was released in 1982 and was created by singers Al Bano and Romina Power.
Felicit issima is one of the most popular pieces of worldwide music in Italian history and a prime example of 80s music, with spontaneous synthesizer repeats throughout the whole song. The word “happiness” appears in the song’s title. The lyrics enumerate several little things that might bring us joy, and the song’s two performers define happiness in different ways. The original message of this song was that happiness is made up of the little, straightforward things we can do with the people we care about. Between 1970 and 1999, Al Bano and Romina Power were joined in marriage and worked together for many years on music composition.
If you’ve seen Berlin, you’ve undoubtedly noticed that the soundtrack’s selection of Felicidad is just the most blatant evidence of how love is the story’s central subject. Love is shown as an unstoppable force that propels our behavior even when we have a life objective, like helping the main characters pull off the largest heist ever, contributing significantly to the team we work for, or keeping up a long-term happy marriage. If love appears, in spite of our best efforts—more accurately, if it is the beginning of love, as Berlin often pointed out—it will completely upend all of our plans.
The material from the original song is extremely nicely conveyed in the Spanish lyrics. Felicidad gives a straightforward illustration of how to live with loved ones: strolling hand in hand, strolling on the beach at night, and staring into each other’s eyes. The original song lists bliss one by one and adheres to the same principle. The choir applauded this love song in each of these performances, citing it as proof of the singers’ shared attachment.
Beginning with the title song “Bullets and Flowers” (which we examined in the last article), the “Berlin” soundtrack is replete with original songs on the influence of love on our lives. Once more, Pedro Alonso and Tristan Uloa, who play the inventor of “The Money Robbery” in “Felicidad,” leave us with unforgettable moments from the beloved television series.
