musical languages

Hi everyone, this is in part inspired by the entry regarding favourite words in different languages. I'm curious to know your opinions on what the most 'musical' language is. I myself have always loved music and I think there are many connections with music and language.

Personally, I find Italian to be very musical, and Portuguese as well. But I'm not sure how much of this relates to the actual language itself, or as reflected in the personality of the speakers...I've definitely noted that the Italian people are very theatrical and animated in even the merest of day-to-day actions! and perhaps this is what is manifested, thereby creating the 'musicality' of their speech.
