List of easy songs to learn Italian for beginners:

E penso a te (Lucio Battisti – 1972)

It’s not just a beautiful song about the nostalgia of a lost love, but it’s also a catchy collection of everyday verbs, which make it the perfect song for beginners. You’ll learn it in a minute without studying. Actions like pensare, lavorare, telefonare, dormire, tornare, etc. are referred to in first person singular.

Azzurro (Adriano Celentano – 1979)

 A list of Italian songs without Adriano Celentano is not a list. Azzurro is an unusual song about love and loneliness in the summer.  We particularly like it because almost all the verbs are in the present tense. Also its melody, a sort of military march, is easy to remember for students who have just started learning Italian.

GIoca jouer (Claudio Cecchetto – 1981)

If you like dancing, you’ll love this. It’s an uncomplicated song, where the singer encourages people to do simple actions, resulting in a visual connection between the word and its meaning, which is very useful for beginners. Besides, all verbs are in infinitive, which may help you better memorize the Italian verbal system.

Bella (Jovanotti – 1997)

This lovely pop song is full of everyday words like finestra, mattina, giorno, fiore, pane, etc. you’ll use at all times, especially if you travel to Italy.

Il Pulcino Pio (Morgana Giovannetti – 2012)

This hilarious 2012 summer hit has been translated into several languages (Spanish, German, French, Dutch, etc.). We absolutely love it and, as with many other Italian teachers, we like it for beginners because it’s funny and it’s perfect to learn the names of animals.
