# 1 Sound of American English

For those of us who are native speakers of American English, this is apparently how we sound to people who do not speak English.

Maybe this could have been adapted for "Little Green Men"?

The video was made in 1972 by an Italian gentleman with nonsense words that sound like English to catch singers who acted like they understood the words of the songs they were singing in English.

Porthos is not amused.

Hmm...sounds like a Bob Dylan song played backwards to a normal, forward playing, rock beat.

HA HA! When I saw the title of the thread, I was expecting it to be a discussion of differences or something, and was planning posting a link to that exact video. I see you've done my job for me.

I love that song, and I play it pretty regularly for other people.

I figured since it was 41 years old, a lot of people had already heard it, but it was new to me. It is really catchy even if it is just gibberish.
