I thought this was an interesting video. I learned about French in high school and Spanish as an adult, and I always wondered how despite being Romance languages they had a number of differences in pronunciation and writing that accumulated over time and regional diffusion.

About languages sounding, I was discussing with other French persons about how other languages sound OK to a French ear. And we conclude that... the Japanese, when spoken calmly (Japanese can be very aggressive) is nice to French ear on the long run.
It's a totally different language but the "music" of the language seems to have something in common.
