Play a song for someone with lyrics in a language they don't speak. Afterward, record them speaking briefly about what they think the song was about, could be a kind of "translating" the lyrics, or just talking about how the song made them feel, what images it brought up, etc. BONUS: Mix the song with the person speaking about it.
