I can't sleep. So it's time to share songs together! Tonight (or this morning, depending on your point of view,) I wanna know - what is your favorite song that you don't understand any of the words?

Clearly one can appreciate a lot of songs without understanding the lyrics - my mom could listen to Billy Jean or (I've Had) The Time of my Life All Day, and her English vocabulary is limited to Yes, No, and Toaster.

Here are three of mine:

Andrea Bocelli ft. Giorgia - Vivo Per Lei

I have no idea what this song is about apart from the fact that the title means "I Live for Her." But I know it's probably one of the best love song out there, just from the music and voices alone. Listen to that! No blind man sings better than this guy.


Brown Eyed Girls - Sixth Sense

I like nearly everything those women have put out, as a group or on their own, but this is hands down my favorite. I have no idea what the song is about, but to my hear it sounds like a Korean version of Cell Block Tango from Chicago. And I love Chicago. Also, usually I can't stand rap bridge in my songs, but I'll listen to Miryo rapping every day. God that girl can bust a rhyme like nobody's business.

Julie Fowlis - Tha Mo Ghaol Air Aird A' Chuain

What is she saying? No idea. But she is saying it beautifully. Tranposts me right to the great green plains of Scotland. And I don,t even know if Scotland has great green plains. In my head it has - it also has sun and leaves blowing in the wind and the air is filled with a heavenly voice.


So, what are yours?
