Just a short, fun post for today. This video made the rounds on the internet several months ago, but a friend recently brought it to back my attention, and it certainly seems appropriate now. As I spend my time this year thinking, and discussing, and writing on this blog about what Italian sounds like to me, it's nice to stop for a minute and consider what it's like when the shoe is on the other foot.

An Italian songwriter wrote this song using gibberish, trying to express what the English language sounds like to a foreigner. I don't know about you, but I think he did a pretty good job! Sometimes I even think I heard some words I recognize, and I have to remind myself it's all nonsense.
