    Hell, I do that shit all the damn time. Probably a quarter of the music I listen to is in a language I don't speak orunderstand .
    I've been digging this chick from Ethiopia for more than a minute after my homeboy loaned me her first cd.

    Of course, I'd love to seek out more in the future though - especially as I like singing without more objective lyrics. Here's a beautiful example, perhaps my favourite - for me though I presume it's Japanese it's as catchy as anything The Beatles did,, ok ok I ain't no big Beatles fan but I reckon once you've heard up to the chorus you'll get what I mean!

    i like tito puente or pretty much any salsa/merengue type music. i like to clean the house to it sometimes.
    @nthngis4vr&; alwyzisalie -i like that selena song too but "si una vez" is my all time fav.

    there's a french song i like but i have no idea of the name or artist.

    random question; anyone know the name of the song played in the club scene in "get him to the greek". its actually a well known song but it was sung in a different language.

    Post a video of the scene, and maybe I can help you out, 'cause I don't remember that scene at the moment, and I couldn't find it on YouTube..

    he's prolly germany's greatest contempary singer, most his songs have underlying religious themes. title means 'lead me to the light'. check this song, it's actually in english and features features wu's the rza (i think they somewhat friends or something):
