The Fresh Prince, Translated

The Fresh Prince of Bel Air is quite a familiar theme song, but experimental band cdza ran the lyrics through Google Translate into other languages and then back into English.
The lyrics were translated from English to the world's most spoken language (Mandarin), to the second most (Spanish), to the third most, to the fourth most, ETC, putting all 64 languages in order by finding the demographic population size on every language on Wikipedia.

We have no idea why we did this.
Yes, something is lost in translation. (via Laughing Squid)
