An Italian singer writes a song to simulate the experience of hearing English without speaking it. Brilliant.

Remember that feeling you had when you were just beginning to learn a language, or had just moved to a foreign country, and everything you heard sounded like an indecipherable code with bizarre, mysterious intonations? I remember when French sounded like an imperious serious of declarations, and Spanish resonated like a landscape of rolling hills. Now, it’s hard to remember when those languages were just strange sensory impressions, and it’s near impossible to think of hearing English this way.

Thankfully, we’ve got this amazing video to show us what it’s like. Enjoy.
