Dragostea Din Tei

You know this song, even if you don't know it. "Dragostea Din Tei" is sung in Romanian by the Moldovan pop group O-Zone. It was a global hit in 2004. The title translates to "Words of Love," but you might know it better as "Numa Numa."  (via a comment at Metafilter)

That song became a worldwide hit on Youtube because of this video:

Unfortunately, the group had already broken up by the time their song became famous!

A better translation would be 'Love of the linden tree', although the word pun also sounds like 'first love' or even 'love of you'.
