'A vucchella è una canzone del 1907 scritta da Gabriele D'Annunzio e musicata da Francesco Paolo Tosti, edita da Giulio Ricordi.
La canzone fu scritta da D'Annunzio a seguito di una sfida fatta da Ferdinando Russo riguardo le capacità del poeta nel comporre versi in napoletano. L'episodio risalirebbe al 1892 ed avrebbe avuto luogo presso il Caffè Gambrinus, all'epoca luogo di ritrovo di poeti ed artisti. D'Annunzio inviò in seguito il suo testo a Francesco Paolo Tosti, anch'egli come D'Annunzio abruzzese, che ne compose la musica. 'A vucchella riscosse notevole successo, pur non essendo una canzone di autori napoletani, anche grazie all'interpretazione di Enrico Caruso.

'A vucchella is a Neapolitan song composed by Paolo Tosti. The poet who wrote the words of this song was the 19th century lyric poet, Gabriele D'Annunzio. He was not from Naples, but from a city in the region of Abruzzo. With the Neapolitan melodic song tradition being so popular worldwide, D'Annunzio wanted to prove himself able to write in the Neapolitan dialect, and managed to do so quite convincingly for this song, "La vucchella"
