Adriano Celentano- Prisencolinensinainciusol

Adriano Celectano is one of my favorite Italian singers and in 1972 he released a song called Prisencolinensinainciusol. He wanted to make a song that sounded like he was singing in English but in actuality it just a bunch of random mesh of words that sound like something but it’s actually not. The only lyric that is in English is the the pharse: “All right!”

I know it sounds a bit confusing but Celentano main goal of the song to to create a song that sounds good while removing the language barrier. While placing the listeners of the song like what if they were spoken to in a language that they didn’t understand? What would it sound like to them? He was influence by a lot of American music, musicians and slang terms growing up and he wanted to create a song that reflected that. Here is a link of the video below:

Until next time!!!
