Yup! However, here is the original. I may just walk through there with headphones on tonight.

That sounds like a really good idea, thanks a ton for the link!!
I'm sorry I misread your post...no they haven't fixed the music.... I assume they are going to stick with the new music.

New music is trash. Kills the mood entirely. Seems as if the park is trying to align the rest of the hamlets with Banbury's current state. Very..."modern"...ish. Not a fan.

On the other hand, Marco Polo's Marketplace is delicious, and a great revitalization/modernization of the area in a very tasteful way. (Take that pun as you wish.)

That looks really nice, it's little details like that which make San Marco stand out along with the other hamlets.

I guess we can all assume it's sticking to the new music instead of giving us the classical beauty of the old one. *sighs*

Yeah, I really can't understand the appeal of the new music. The park has been making such excellent strides in returning to their charming, Old Country roots, and San Marco's smorgasbord of strange Italian tunes doesn't fit the trend. I think what irritates me most is that the new soundtrack doesn't even fit any particular direction; it bounces aimlessly between modern Euro-pop, eccentric opera, bizarre 50's records, and outlandish choir music.

Out of genuine and respectful curiosity: is there anyone here who prefers the new music? And if so, why? I am legitimately interested in what appeal there may be to the new soundtrack, because I have trouble seeing it.

I'm genuinely curious too, honestly the 50's records and eccentric opera I don't mind, but everything else sticks out so badly that I can't stand it. Please get some beautiful classic music in San Marco stat!

I do not like the new soundtrack at all, however, that opinion is separate from my taste for the music. The soundtrack is even more sporadic (in a bad way) than the music that played for a while in and around Il Teatro di San Marco.

I actually excused that music since it fit Mix it Up's new Italian restaurant theme. This time, it affects the entire area. Italy has so many separate sound channels, you would think they could isolate it to the plaza of Marco Polo's Marketplace. Only then could I see it making any sense since MPM is a more eclectic restaurant, just like the music. I would love it if the park could find a solution like they did previously with MIU's themed playlist. The park has had have had up to 6 distinct sound zones in San Marco proper (not counting Pompeii or Festa Italia) at one time. They even added new speaker rigging and shade. This proposal should be very easy for them compared to that.

As for the music by itself: I am not as opposed to it as one might think. The music bears a shocking resemblance to the range of variety in German music in the 1900s. Since I know very little of modern German music, this music hits some similar receptors. Notice that I didn't say heartstrings.

While not al horrible songs by themselves, none of it really moves me the way the sweeping instrumental score did. All of that music went at a rather carefree, yet consistent tempo, much like the swinging of The Battering Ram, or the spinning of The Flying Machine. The intro to Bella piccinina in particular sounds like it could have been written exclusively for one of those rides.

It sounded nothing short of magical in comparison to this new playlist that seems to have been compiled without any concern about its surroundings. There are some songs that I would love listening to almost anywhere outside of Busch Gardens, such as the song "L'anima Vola" by Elise. I also like the sound of "Sui Monti Del Cadore" by Coro Lombardo. The men's choir sound like the Italian equivalent of what Germans would call sailor music. Still, even the best of the new songs could never compare to the luster of the old score that fit perfectly with the surroundings.
