I'm going to try my hand at this lazyweb thing. There are three bits of language I'd like to have explored.
- On the Chumbawamba CD "Un", the song "On Ebay" has a chant that occasionally is prominent in the music. What language is it in, and what does it say? It might make sense for it to be in an Iraqi dialect of Arabic, but not speaking Arabic, I can't tell if this is true.
- On the Firewater CD, "Songs We Should Have Written", there is what looks like Arabic or Parsi writing on the flag the guy is holding. What does it say?
- On the No Use for a Name" CD, "More Betterness", there's a song called "Not Your Savior", which opens with a language I can't identify except to think that it's probably eastern European. What language is it, and what does it say?
I have made at least some effort with Google to get answers to these questions.aReplies are welcome as comments or via email.
