We talked about learning the language in order to speak properly and get understood (properly!). Yep, check.
What about learning the lyrics before singing a foreign-language song?
More than 12.500.000 views on youtube. You need to see this.
Valentina Hasan, a contestant in the second season of the Bulgarian show “Music Idol” performs Mariah Carey’s song “Without you” in fake English:
The reaction of Mariah Carey:
Come on, sing along.
Ken leeeeeee, ….
P.S. Guess this other “American” song. Can you?
This is wonderful! Started my day right. Thank you!
Most welcome! 🙂
Love it! Thanks for the chuckles!
I have known people who have learned English pronunciation through songs.
It is a very funny clip but I wish the YouTuber had not credited Mariah Carey for Harry Nilsson’s song – he wrenched that song from his soul, Carey only sang a version of it and made money, and heaven knows what that Bulgarian girl has done to it.
Amen. That song was my first ever breakup song in high school and it will ALWAYS be Harry’s no matter who sings it.
