How I learned about a Romanian song

We lived in Austria for couple of years, then we established in the States in 1992. Years later, after we visited about 45 States, we were I was traveling to Europe, It was in 2004. Our flight went smooth and we were trying alternatives for passing the time, when I put the headphones to listen to some music - provided by the crew, and I hear this song in Romanian - my mother language, I was , wowed...not many songs make it to America or...to become so popular to be commercially played in public places,...

The name of the song was "dragostea din tei", it was written and composed by Dan Bălan, and the original version was sung by Bălan, Arsenie Todiraş, and Radu Sârbu. The single was first released in 2003 in Moldova, where the group lived and produced at that time, and in the spring of 2004 in most other European countries.

The Small start

The song was not popular in America by any means, before  they made it here , they had an English version ready for us.

The translation is quiet difficult, because the Moldavian language was a mixture of Russian influence and the Latin Romanian based language.

"Dragostea din tei" is written in Romanian. There are several proposed translations of the title, such as Love from the linden trees (also called "linden trees") and Love out of the linden trees. And it's very well possible that the intended meaning was also NOT the love from the linden tree but, the FIRST LOVE,
