Eureka!! I've found it!

I have discovered the origins of the music behind the aforementioned video about France's Zidane and his head butting antics.

The song is Sympathique by Pink Martini. They are a 12 peice indi band whose music is in six languages. They have released two albums to date: “Sympathique” (1997) and “Hang on Little Tomato” (2004).

To see their Sympathique video, which is entertaining and witty, go to It is worth it, people!!!

They even have a person signing. Now, I'm not sure if its American Sign Language or French Sign Language or what, but I know there are interpreters out there who read this blog--you know who you are!!! Fill me in on that score.

I am now totally addicted to this group--or at least this song.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
