Prisencolinensinainciusol

This video is years old by now, might be new to some though. Comedian Adriano Celentano had an idea to make a song with lyrics entirely made of gibberish. His goal was to make the gibberish sound as english as he could, that is without actually speaking a word of real english. Together with wife Claudia Mori he did just that.

Heres a blurb from Wiki- In an interview, Celentano explains 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."
Celentano's rationale for the song was that, after releasing albums about ecology and social issues, "having just recorded an album of songs that meant something, I wanted to do something that meant nothing".
