Are there any songs in foreign languages or the like that you love despite not understanding?

I could listen to Ayumi Hamasaki's "Fly High" every day for the rest of my life. The song has an amazing message and great energy, but I don't understand a word of it.

Just because you don't understand the language doesn't mean you can't make up your own lyrics.

Oom baka loom baka loom macarena
Oom baka loom baka loom macarena
Oom baka loom baka loom macarena
Heeey macarena



One dollar bill
I need a one dollar bill
One dollar biiiiill
I need a one dollar bill



Some songs just don't need a translation.



I don't understand a lick of Japanese. I guess this is a song about a woman waiting for her husband to come home from a fishing trip while she works in the rice fields.

Although it's in English, I don't understand half the words to any Volbeat song. I've very into Volbeat but I make up lyrics all the time. I could just look up the lyrics, but I'm afraid I might be disappointed and think mine were better, so I just roll with that.

Champloose - Hana (Tomoko version)


Kawa wa nagarete doko doko iku no
Hito mo nagarete doko doko iku no
Sonna nagare ga tsuku koro niwa
Hana toshite hana toshite sakassete aguetai
Nakinasai Warainasai
Itsuno hi ka itsu no hi ka hana wo sakasoyo

Namida nagarete doko doko iku no
Ai mo nagarete doko doko iku no
Sonna nagare wo kono uti ni
Hana toshite hana toshite Mukaette aguetai
Nakinasai Warainasai
Itsuno hi ka itsu no hi ka hana wo sakasoyo

Hana wa hana toshite warai mono dekiru
Hito wa hito toshite namida mo nagassu
sorega shizen no utananossa
kokoro no naka ni kokoro no naka ni hana wo sakasoyo
Nakinasai Warainasai
itsu itsu mademo itsu itsu mademo
hana wo tsukamoyo

Almost every song by the Redhot Chili Peppers.

Pure stream of consciousness it would seem, the fact it is in English is completely irrelevant.

I love this, the tune and the guy in the video! Both him and the song, it just makes me so happy and smiley!
I have no idea what he's singing though. None.

You can of course shrink existing gif file sizes either through visual size or quality. Simple websites online if you google something like shrink gifs.

but I was almost crying and smiling ear to ear. Something that real and that happy.. Goes right into me as if I was the guy smiling. I feel so much better now.

КУКРЫНИКСЫ - ЧЕРНЫЙ ВОРОН (ПРОЕКТ СОЛЬ)


Chernyy voron, chernyy voron, Chto ty v'yesh'sya nado mnoy? Ty dobychi ne dozhdesh'sya, Chernyy voron, ya ne tvoy!



Chernyy voron means black raven or black crow. Part from that, I don't understand a word of what they sing.

Although she's Norwegian and I'm Norwegian, I don't understand a word of this song. This song is not in Norwegian though, but in Sami language.


Mari Boine - Vuoi Vuoi Mu
