    I think being a Eurovision fan results in me having a higher exposure to music in a different language. I actually quite enjoy it! Some of my favourite songs are in another language

    I also enjoy listening to a German band called Wir Sind Helden. Their song 'Nur Ein Wort' has an awesome video

    I listen to tons of Russian and Greek music for some reason, and also German (love "The Comedian Harmonists") but as I speak German I suppose that doesn't really count.

    I listen to French, Japanese, and a LITTLE Korean music.

    My favorite French artists are Stromae, Keny Arkana, Black M, and Shin Sekai. Anyone recommend me to more French rappers?

    For Japanese music, I like anything made by Exile Tribe. It's been a solid year for them so far. E-girls are da best. I like Scandal, C-ute, Juice=Juice, 9nine... Basically any girl group that isn't AKB48 or Morning Musume. Like the older Johnny's Groups.

    I also listen to T-ara's Japanese music, SNSD's Japanese music (but their music has been poop lately), and Kara's music. I only listen to Afterschools Japanese music. I despise the kpop that's been coming out this year. Hyomin's Nice Body had disgustingly sexist lyrics. I don't mind songs about love, but not songs that overtly sexualize BOTH men and women. Anyone that says Kpop is more meaningful than Western music is clearly living in a fantasy world.

    did I mention that Exid's LE is the most underrated rapper ever?

    Being Italian, I listen to a lot of Italian music, however I am not fully fluent but I still very much enjoy it. It's the melody, the singer, try listen to Laura Pausini, Studio 3 and Zero Assoluto. A few of my fav Italian artists. I've seen Laura Pausini live at the Royal Albert Hall and I was blown away. Incredible singer.

    Definitely worth listening to Italian!

    Another one of my favourite Swedish singers is Veronica Maggio

    Some of the Django Reinhardt stuff (in the very few songs he sings) are in French; but some of his songs have English titles too.

    I've been watching Eurovision for ages (from the ripe age of like 5-6 :P) but I never saw the 2007 Ukraine

    Have you seen Tina Karol's 2006 Ukraine?

    I usually listen to Japanese music, especially stuff by Blu-Swing or So'Fly. Recently discovered and got into music by Serani Poji and Asako Toki that I absolutely love.

    I also used to do Spanish for GCSE and A-Level, so listened to some Spanish music for that, and quite liked Ester Andujar's song 'Aprovecho la lluvia' a lot, amongst other things. Anything else I'll just happen upon and go from there. :P
