While most novelty songs are often quickly erased from memory, the international hit "We No Speak Americano" by Australian DJs Yolanda Be Cool  & DCUP has managed to find new listeners and make its way stateside. The global appeal of this swing/jazz tune exists in its ability to mix the old with the new, as it combines a sample of Nicola Salerno's 1956 tune "Tu Vuò Fa' L'Americano" with modern house music and broken Italian. The production also uses a precise amount of repetition while showcasing a bouncy piano and flickering saxophones. The track's playfulness is further enhanced by a must-see music video that would make Charlie Chaplin proud. Although the jury is still out on the longevity of Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP's U.S. careers, "Americano" recalls early hits by Fatboy Slim , Justice  and Daft Punk , and could serve as a strong launching pad for the DJs.
