Ah, Slovenian?  I love the sound of that language as well -- although it's 
Slavic language rather than being descended from the Magyars, IIRC, and 
would be part of the Romance Language family (same as Russian, French, 
Spanish, etc.).  I can remember driving across Austria and catching some
Slovenian Hip-Hop/Rap on the radio.  Even though I couldn't understand the
words, their cadence made the spoken passages turn and flow wonderfully in 
manner that American Hip-Hop rarely does any more.  I agree.  There's a 
lilt to
it that's just beautiful.
