BTC: Prisencolinensinainciusol

Hey, late-risers. Filling in for Mer, who was kidnapped by the Ambien Walrus last night, to bring you this week’s installment of Better than Coffee. This song, recorded in 1972 and sung in “fake English” by Italian singer Adriano Celentano, will wake you right up. According to Celentano, the song is about incommunicability in the modern age, and prisencolinensinainciusol decodes to “universal love.” OL RAIT!

    This video makes me feel like my brain has been stolen and replaced with someone else’s.

    Wow I always kind of wondered what somebody who spoke another language imitating English would sound like. Now I know. The syllables are familiar but mean nothing.

    It is not morning, and I didn’t think I needed waking up. But now I realize how wrong I was. NOW I am awake!

    I’m completely fascinated by the language. And the beat. And I feel like I was born decades too late now. Thanks for sharing!
