Quick Summary:

I want to take an MP3 (for example from great French singer Georges Brassens) and its lyrics (easily found with Google) eventually translated, I want to create and publish a video like this one


  • Singing is perhaps the most efficient strategy to actually learn a foreign language.
  •  If you have friends (girlfriend in my case!) of a different culture, it’s also wonderful to exchange songs you love with lyrics included so they can follow them.
  • I don’t want just to use the “subtitles” feature of YouTube, I want to make a beautiful video like the one from Brassens above.
  • There are a LOT of such songs already on YouTube, you can easily found them by typing “name of the song lyrics” (English) or “nom chanson paroles” (French) or “cancion letra” (Spanish). If so many people can do it, I can too but I don’t know where to begin!
