I often enjoy singing and listening to many of the common Neapolitan songs that are performed in an operatic style.

Beniamino Gigli- 'O Sole Mio:

I hope you enjoy these recordings as much as I do. :heart1:

I'm not sure if this traditional Italian piece is actually Neapolitan song, but some sources claim that it is and I love it:

Great response, Aramis. Alas, the Franco Corelli recording is blocked by copyright laws in my country. However, I found an Enrico Caruso recording that is quite enthralling:

"Core 'ngrato" was written in 1911 by Salvatore Cardillo and Alessandro Sisca, and his first performer was none other than Enrico Caruso.

Here we can hear the version of Giuseppe di Stefano:
