It Had Better Be Tonight

"It Had Better Be Tonight (Meglio Stasera)" is a song recorded for his third studio album, Call Me Irresponsible. It was released a single on October 17, 2007, but like "Comin' Home Baby", it wasn't the most popular on the charts. However, "It Had Better Be Tonight" has become Bublé's most remixed song.

History Edit

"Meglio Starsera," originally released for the the 1963 film, The Pink Panther, is an Italian song that was originally written by Franco Migliacci in 1963. However, Johnny Mercer, an American songwriter/composer, was able to rewrite the song with similar but English lyrics. The English version of the song features the Italian expression "Fa' subito!," (Do it right away) but the original Migliacci cut features the line "Domani chi lo sa, quel che sarà?" which means "who knows what will happen tomorrow."

Lyrics Edit

Meglio stasera
Baby go go go
Or as we natives say
"Fa subito!"
If you're ever gonna kiss me
It had better be tonight
While the mandolins are playing
And stars are bright
If you've anything to tell me
It had better be tonight
Or somebody else may tell me
And whisper the words just right
Meglio stasera
Baby go go go
Or as we natives say
"Fa subito!"
For this poor Americano
Who knows little of your speech
Be a nice Italiano
And start to teach
Show me how in old Milano
Lovers hold each other tight
But I want you sweet paesano
It had better be tonight
Meglio stasera
Baby go go go
Or as we natives say
"Fa subito!"
