I've commented before on this video:
a Finn (Markus Poyhonen)
and Estonian Sanna Hento
dancing in Helsinki
to a song with a French title
sung by 2 Americans
of west African ancestry.
But the song I posted earlier today shows how English triumphs. It's a song
sung by a Norwegian
who was born in Belarus (when it was part of the Soviet Union)
performing in Moscow
in a European contest
singing a song with Russian folk influences
and sung completely in English.
Those who speak English from childhood have no idea how lucky we are. We speak the Latin of the 21st century, the one language that serves as everyone's second language. (That is, when it's not their first language: that's the case for some 375 million people).
