Wow. This is pretty much the best thing EVER. Diego Pinedo, a student in The Photograph as Language course, posted this on his class blog. We're working with a population with the acquired language disorder, aphasia - which led Diego to think about what English sounds like to those who don't speak the language. The lyrics of this song are apparently pure gibberish. The song's artist states that "the song is about "incommunicability" because in modern times people are not able to communicate to each other anymore. He added the only word we need is prisencolinensinainciusol, which is supposed to stand for "universal love."
