This is immensely interesting to me. The reason I listen to 'world music',of similar genres to my liking, is because I don't care much for lyrics, but I do enjoy the sound of the human voice. I find the words distracting. I'll often listen to our 'English' music and try to consciously ignore what is being said to enhance my listening experience.

I know I'm not alone. I've had a few friends and colleagues admit they do the same thing. Thanks so much for sharing!

This thread just made my night! I am not so sure this is what English sounds like to the rest of the world, but it is how the rest of the world sounds like when they speak English. Just imagine how retarded we sound when we try to speak Spanish or French.

I am pretty sure Benny Lava is a classic and the next William Hung or that "pants on the ground" guy.

Funny post, thanks.

The song is all riff, a total 'earworm' because the riff never pays off into some sort of discernible chorus or ending. It's like that crazy "Chocolate Rain" song. Completely repetitive of the same looping pieces of music, that never goes anywhere.

The brain naturally needs somewhere for the music to go, but these looping pieces like this never have a pay-off, so they get stuck in our heads. Like when you get a part of a song stuck in your head all day, it's probably because you've forgotten or need to re-hear the rest of it. YOu keep hearing some small part of it in your mind, looping over and over. The best cure for an earworm is to just listen to the whole song all the way through. It helps your mind "complete" the tune and then you can let it go.


To this day I want to murder lamb chop for the song that never ends...

"This is the song that never ends, it just goes on and on and on... some people, started singing it not knowing what it was, and they'll continue singing it forever just because..."

over and over..

We, the English speaking people...think we are SO important.

But this is what MOST of the world hears when we speak to them.

(minus the beats)

Gibberish.

But they can judge our actions...



I was not being a snob I just didn't see what you were getting at, and I still don't.

You are right about judging our actions but since when did the American government do what it SAYS it's going to lol.

Sorta like people hear when any language is spoken that they don't understand?


Thanks for sharing this. My wife always said that, before she could speak English, English sounded like: rarraahwahaha Yes rarrawha. It's funny to me to see that the "rest of the world" hears that too.

I'd like to hear the Italian take on what German sounds like.

Some say when you don't understand American English it sounds like "bark bark bark, bark".

I knew a Scottish woman when I lived in Hungary and someone asked her what Americans sound like to her and she said that, to her, when Americans talk, it always sounds like we're singing! I thought it was pretty interesting.

Thanks Signals.

WTH did I just see? I don't do drugs, so it can't be a hallucination.

These vids remind me of the classic misheard lyrics of Wishmaster, by Nightwish.

This one is quite cute, it starts singing at 0:40.

Since folks do not always understand what is in the songs we heard on the radio. He then imagines himself singing a song on what he thinks the words are.

The guy is a stand up comic and he created a song with imaginery words that sounds english.
