“Luce (Tramonti a nord est)”(“Light (North-East Sunsets)”) is Italian singer-songwriter Elisa’s most famous song, both in her home Italy and internationally, in its English version “Come Speak to Me”. It also has a Spanish version called “Hablame”, which has a slightly different arrangement. It was Elisa’s first song in Italian, even though she had already released two albums in English.
It was heard for the first time in the 2001 edition of the Sanremo Festival, winning first place, defeating the entry by the favorite Giorgia, as well as the critics’ award and the radio and TV award; Elisa won the best singer award in that same event. The music was written by Elisa, as well as the English lyrics, which are actually the original lyrics. But in order to take part in Sanremo Festival, the lyrics had to be presented in Italian, so she asked for the help of rocker Zucchero. It is heavily influenced by Björk, with references to Peter Gabriel during the chorus bassline. The arrangement is one of the most complex and dazzling in all of Italian music. There is a vocal mantra which runs throughout the entire song.
