Adriano Celentano – Prisencolinensinainciusol -VIDEO

Here’s a video of Mr. 24000 baci with a great lesson in gobbledygook. Rock ‘N’Roll as the universal language? –here’s the proof…
Note: there’s another great colour clip of this on youtube in a classroom setting…Enjoy!

I was instantly amazed by this record when I found it at a thrift store in the 70s. Who was this guy? What in the world is that strange language he's singing in? Now I discover there's an entire video clip of this bizarre song. Wonderful!

Hi Nick
I'm sure that some of our more learned Italian friends could give more of a lowdown on the career Mr. Celentano.BTW,That's Raffaela Carra making a cameo on the clip. Has anyone got a spare copy of the Glam/Disco cross-over Get Movin' ?

You might know that the late Mike Reid released a version of this song. I heard it on the novelty song cd compilation "You Are Awful But We Like You". His cockney version of "Chantilly Lace" is on it too.

The guy sang this song in his own brand of pseudo-english. In Italy they even had a name for it: Celetanesca. Haha, here's the complete lyrics:
cheers, Jos
