I've never heard german music before I know german has a stereotype of sounding quite horrible but I think it sounds nice.
I just looked up Phillip Poisel


Never really listened to alot of German before either, but I just looked up Phillip Poisel as well... :thumbsup: Only German music I've listened to is this song (Vice City days.... :ninja:)



As for English music...

I definitely think English is the best because of the breadth of ways you can describe things, but that's is not to dismiss other languages whatsoever.

To throw another language in the mix, I quite like Japanese:
Tobenai Tsubasa


Kawa no Nagare no Yoni (sung by Placido Domingo)

German is a definite favourite (and not bloody Rammstein either) but my Brazilian bf has converted me. It's Portuguese. XD


1:30 to get to the actual language.

(Also, gentlemen of TSR - you know you would. :sexface:)

I'm listening to a lot of their stuff now. I'm surprised I haven't heard of them before.
Yeah I've heard Gitana. A lot of the girls in my spanish class seem to be obsessed with gypsies for some reason so they have are constantly playing it

I like when english speaking artists sing in spanish as well.
Hahaha, interesting obsession Yeah me too, I always listen to Beyonce in Spanish! Never heard Robbie before now though, I don't really like much of his music in English, maybe hearing it in Spanish will change my mind. I would also recommend this which is even better if you've actually seen the film which is amazing

E'topa. E-E'topa.

Spanish of course. On the peninsular side of things there's the amazing Estopa, Cameron de la Isla, Lagarto Amarillo, Mecano, Melendi, Ska-P, El Pescao, Alejandro Sanz, Maldita Nerea.. I'm less down on Latin American music as it were, but I know a few; you have your Mexicans like Santana and Maná and even your Chicanos such as Ritchie Valens and Los Lobos.

French-wise into the usuals like Charles Aznavour, Mickey 3D, Manu Chao etc.

I love English music the most but...I love Spanish Music, particularly from Andalusia or generally parts of Southern Spain which makes Gypsy music.

Italian music is after Spain. I also have a thing for French music because it's very 'chic'.

This is Camaron, a Southern Spain music legend.
