    Do you listen to music in a different language?

    Kind of similar to the Obscure Music Selection thread, but I had a conversation with my wife about this last night and was curious what CF thought.

    Do you listen to music in another language and why?

    Personally, I listen to Jpop & Jrap and German Heavy metal mostly. I tend to focus more on the beat / tempo of the song or I am attracted to the singer's voice.

    Re: Do you listen to music in a different language?

    I listen to Rock Nacional from Argentina. Why? Because I've studied their twice in high school and college. Love me some Molotov, Juanes and Mana too.

    My wife listens to a lot of Edith Piaf and I've come to appreciate her.
    She is the French chick that you hear singing in EVERY World War 2 movie you have seen that takes place in Europe.

    Re: Do you listen to music in a different language?

    I tend to listen to the bi-lingual bands (Ill Nino, Soulfly) or major bands in other languages (Sigur Ros, Rammstein), but that's about it.

    Sometimes Pearl Jam comes on Pandora and I can't understand a god damn thing he says, so I assume it's Greek or something, so I'll say yes.

    Re: Do you listen to music in a different language?

    I have been a big Rammstein fan for a number of years. My son and I went to their concert in Minneapolis last May. Great music (in any language) is worth listening to.

    Re: Do you listen to music in a different language?

    yes - but usually because I'm listening to old stuff from my or my husband's songs from college choirs, operaish stuff or Celtic Women. But I usually still know the words so I don't feel like that counts.

    I listen to Amadou and Mariam. A group from Mali. If I were to listen to a song in a foreign language, it would probably be something from Africa.

    Rammstein is awesome.

    I also have a couple Sigur Ros (Icelandic band) albums that come on now and again.
