Saturday night a buddy of mine asked me to download this song called Drogostea Din Tei by a group called O-zone....tells me its some German song and its got a real catchy tune....well I ended up listening to the song approximately 20 times between 2.00 am and 6.00 am....along with I dont know how many Heinikens......and everyone else who has heard the song since then can't stop humming it......

then I did some searching yesterday and found out that its a Romanian song and there is this guy called Gary who has a video (with this song) that he made starring himself using his webcam......can be seen here

once the page opens up click on "Watch This Movie"......
