Literally translated from the Italian "to fly," "Volare" has been a widely recognized energetic ballad since its creation in the mid-50s. Recorded in widely diverse styles by Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and Bobby Rydell, among others, Domenico Modungnoâ€™s spicy melody has most recently been used in television commercials. Jack Bullockâ€™s concert band scoring is certain to have them singing in the aisles. Woo-oh-oh-oh!
