Sympathique, fantastique, la musique

Did you know that sympa is the most commonly used adjective in Paris? Initially, sympa is short for sympathique and translated to english it means “nice”. People, places, moments, activities can all be sympa. Being fantastically non-committing, ‘sympa‘ grew to become tremendously popular an adjective.  In Paris, there is really only one answer to the question “C’était comment ?” Sympa!

There is sympa song from Serbian singer Bajaga and it goes like this:

La musique c’est fantastique
prepare la revolution
et la femme est tres jolie
tre jolie comme un bonbon
