    Gonna be in LV in <2 weeks and my TO DO list is always to watch the Bellagio Fountain Show, specifically my favorite Con Te Partirò. Do you guys have any favorites?

    I feel like the only one I ever see is My Heart Will Go On and I hate Celine Dion. At least the fountains are beautiful!

    I feel the same way about the Faith Hill song This Kiss. I swear one trip I saw that fountain show about every other one:mad:. Last time I looked it seemed that Bellagio had taken it off the play list:woohoo:

    Another vote for Con Te Partirò. I break out in tears every time I catch it. My husband loves to make fun of me for it.

    Luck be a Lady. Love the energy of that one. I haven't been in a while so don't know if that's still being done.

    I only see the word "Time" in the title above. And I think, Yes! Awesome! Ticking awaaaaay the moments that make up a dull dayyyyyyy Fritter and waste the hours in an off hand waaaaay lol


    My first fountain show up close and personal where I could hear the music was and instrumental "In the Mood" and I think that's still the best I've witnessed. But I've watched most of my fountain shows from hotel rooms where I cant hear the music, so I havent listened to that many. Con te partiro would definitely go great with the whole Bellagio theming and some dancing water. I'd like to see that one!

    Oh geez - I see the full title is time to say goodbye. Would refuse to watch out of protest and musical snobbery if they play the bastardized version with Sarah Brightman and lyrics that in no way go with the song and completely change the meaning of what is originally a beautiful piece of poetry :eek:
     
    If they're opener, I'll probably go.
    If they're open at all, and I go to Luxor, good chance I go here too

    They do the Andrea Bocelli version - definitely powerful and emotion-evoking!

    Good - the video was the version with Sarah Brightman, which I hate. The original Bocelli version, con te partiro, means with you, I'll go, as in I'll go with you anywhere any time, and all the rest if the lyrics are like, you're my sun, you're my moon, I'll follow you anywhere. The Brightman version just shoves "time to say goodbye" in English, randomly, with the rest if the original lyrics and it's one of my musical pet peeves lol

    my vote is a tie Con Te Partirò and Tiesto. I just love the water work with Tiesto and the music is great...

    "Proud to be an American" is awesome!

    I've heard there was one set to the Pink Panther theme, but haven't seen that one. My guess that would be my new favorite if I ever got to see it.

    I forgot about the Pink Panther theme! I saw that years ago when I lived there. It was pretty great!

    Every time I've seen it, it was the duet version, sung mostly in Italian with the original lyrics. Same recording as in the video @QuaDxAceZ posted.
