- Tornare a esistere. This was the first song written and recorded. Some of the stems or tracks were recorded in 2010. Due to technical problems and lack of know how, it took 2 years before the song was finally properly released in April 2012 with the title “Dentro Un Vortice”. The first version contained a mix of lyrics in Spanish and Italian. Later a second version was released with more Italian lyrics. A dance mix made by Dario Margeli himself called “Omega Guitars Remix” was released on youTube. This version contains guitars not used in the main version. In May 2015 a dance remix made by producer Bolmer was released. This version has a video with additional footage filmed in 2015. This version was used as the main version for years. However Bolmer’s mix was a dub mix. Because of this in 2019 it was decided to take the original recording and update it and re-write the lyrics. The title of the song changed to “Tornare a esistere”. This version appears in an album called Suma which contains versions of Dario’s recordings appearing first on vinyl records. In February 2012 “Tornare a esistere” was released again with updated drums in the chorus, new synthesizers and a new bass guitar line. BPM : 104 Key : C harmonic minor / Homayoun

This version was released on the Fluido album. There is a synthpop electronic remix by Ziemowit that appears on the Electronic album. The electronic version has a video too with some changes from the original video.
- How to respond. A few months before its English version, it was released in Italian language as Come Reagire. There is also a guitar-oriented version of Come Reagire on the album Fluido. That version has a real drummer.
- When your brain lies to you.
- Fluido. This is a song in Italian. There is also a Spanish version with the same title.
- Andar por donde nunca he estado. This appeared in its initial version on the album Fluido. An Italian version called Nuove Prospettive was also on the Album. A few months later both versions where rereleased on the album Suma with updated new drums by Big Ev and added strings section by Fabrizio Selli. A lyric-video was created for the updated Italian version. In 2021 a lyric video was created for the updated Spanish version and so it was released as a single.

- Zowgheh Zendegi. There is an Italian version with title: Spirito Eterno. The lyrics of the Italian version are completely new and unrelated. The first Italian version used a drum loop. A bit later the drum loop was replaced with a real drummer and it was re-released as Spirito Eterno (Remastered). The video was updated to include a person playing the guitar. Many months later, English lyrics where created for the song and the music slightly transformed for the English version to give it a more “Smooth Jazz” feeling. The title of the English version is Pure Spirit. The English version replaces some of the lyrics parts with Jazz guitar lines. A month later Pure Spirit was re-released using a different backing vocalist and with even less lyrics and more jazz guitars. This is the link to the second English version. It is a bit hard to find the second version on Spotify by browsing because Spotify thought it is the same as the first version, so it bundled the two up together. There were two videos for the Italian version. Each of the English versions has its own video.
- Sono quel bambino. There is an English version called I’m That Kid. There are two different videos for the sono quel bambino, one of them consisting of Dario singing in front of a white wall with images of coastal white towns mixed in.
- Sacred Mandala. There is a version in italiano called Sacro mandala. There is also a Smooth Jazz version.
There have been albums as well but they consist of the above mentioned recordings. The first album was called Testa and appeared only in physical CD format. The few copies made were sold on Bandcamp. The cover art photo was taken in Perito Moreno glacier. The second album was called Mente and it only appeared on physical CD format. Most of the copies were sent to Italian music journalists and very few copies remained for the general public. Mente has an original photo as a cover art with Dario appearing looking a bit crazy. There are 3 digital albums: Electronic, Fluido and Suma. “Electronic” contains BiTbear and other dance and electronic remixes of the songs. The photo for the “Fluido” album was taken in Bordeaux France. “Suma” contains updated versions of some of the songs. These updates were created for inclusion in two physical-only Vinyl LP’s: “Dario Margeli” and “Sigma”. Both of the vinyl albums have unique original illustrations and paintings for cover art. Very few copies were made of the vinyl LP’s and they are lacquer-cut, not pressed, vinyl. There are two versions of the Sigma vinyl.
