There's a genre of music that I was introduced to over a year ago that I've absolutely fallen in love with and always gets me in a terrific frame of mind. When I watched the Sarah Brightman PBS special 'Symphony' I first heard the Italian tenor Alessandro Safina and at that moment I was hooked. The music is 'pop opera' or 'popera' as some may call it, and since then it's the only music I've listened to.
Safina has absolutely the most mesmerizing voice I've ever heard, and I've never heard anyone sing with such emotion and feeling. I have listened to him almost 24/7 for the last year and a half, and have never tired of his incredible voice. If you like Il Divo, Josh Groban, or Andrea Bocelli, listen to this amazing tenor and see if he doesn't get you in a great mood as well. You can just search YouTube and find his songs.
Some of my favorites are:
Canto Della Terrra
Insieme A Te
I Giardini Di Marzo
Here's Sarai Qui from the PBS Special. Sarai Qui is the Italian verson of Faith Hill's song 'There You'll Be', which was a huge hit. Most of the people I've talked to like the Italian version much better than the original. What do you think?

If this isn't 'your cup of tea', what kind of music do you like?
