Freezing Cold and Ants and I Tools Old, All Right.

Okay that probably seems very strange for those of you who don't know the Italian artist; Adriano Celentano. Here's the wikipedia article quote about it since they explain how it was made better:

"The song is deliberately meant to sound to its intended Italian audience like English spoken with an American accent, but the lyrics are actually pure gibberish, with the exception of the words "all right", spelled in the internet-posted video as "oll raigth".[1] Celentano's intention with the song was to explore communications barriers. "Ever since I started singing, I was very influenced by American music and everything Americans did. So at a certain point, because I like American slang which, for a singer, is much easier to sing than Italian I thought that I would write a song which would only have as its theme the inability to communicate. And to do this, I had to write a song where the lyrics didn't mean anything.""

So here is the full version with the full intro:

This is without the intro (the one I like) with no English subtitles. If you can, listen to this one first:

And this is with English Subtitles to show you what words are actually used. It's extremely silly but so entertaining!

I was introduced to this song my freshman year of college when my singing professor showed us when we were talking about IPA and language in general. Then I was reminded of it by Lucillia here and just had to share our joy with everyone haha. Enjoy this 70's Italian hit!
