Possibly the hottest tune on the planet

Possibly the hottest tune on the planet

We warned you that this South African wedding song was going places when the Italian navy used it in a passing out parade.

Now, the nuns have taken over.

Don’t you just love it?

Here’s how it all began.


  • V.Lind says:

    In the course of its taking over the world, it left me out. But I do not know what Tik Tok is — I’m behind in the social media I don’t use.

    As for this little item: I think the sisters should take it to da ‘hood and have Maggie Smith stand by to tell them “Try to blend in!”

  • E says:

    Can’t help loving them! To dance together like this is to
    spread joy.

  • Elizabeth Owen says:

    First big smile of the day. Thanks Norman.

  • Marfisa says:

    It is well worth watching the original video again (linked in SD’s post on the Italian navy): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCZVL_8D048

    Jerusalema ikhaya lami(Jerusalem is my home)
    Ngilondoloze(Guard me)
    Uhambe nami(Walk with me)
    Zungangishiyi lana(Do not leave me here)

    After the vapid posturings of Emily Johnson’s Being Future Being, this is the real thing.

  • David K. Nelson says:

    They could not be more charming.

  • Paul Terry says:

    Warners have started charging royalties on the use of this music, even if it is being used for a charity fund-raiser. Mean-spirited.
