Prisencolinensinainciusol: what english sounds like to people who don't speak english

an italian songwriter named adriano celentanowrote a song with nonsensical lyrics in an effort to replicate the sound of english. both the video and song are euro-wacky and terrific. ultramafic could mix wonders with this.

thanks for the tip, garrett!

I loved the video! It shows that no matter how Banal or Unintelligible the lyrics, enjoyable music ultimately triumphs.

What the hell? Where did you find this? This is too good for words. I am teaching English in France right now, and I have always wondered what I sound like to them. Now I know. And it's hilarious.

This is terrible but I couldn't stop watching it. This can't be recent? It looks very disco-era! Wow.
