Of all the romance languages, it could be argued that Italian is the sweetest on the ear, with it sing song tone, yet French has always eclipsed other languages in romance, at least in the eyes of Americans. Eyes being the key. Watch a person speak French and you'll undoubtedly notice his lips pull into a kissy face. He has to, to properly pronounce so many French words. Stare at talking frenchmen for the length of a movie and it seems like his blown you hundreds of kisses.
