    Hi, I'm a student from Taiwan. I love listening to Asian songs, for example, the songs of YeeChing Chan, Sodagreen, Yanzi Sun, etc. So I wonder whether you like Asian songs and what Asian songs impressed you most? Thanks~

    All I can say is that Japanese pop music is some of the stupist, bat-****-insane terribad noise I have ever heard in my life.

    I'd rather cut my own ears off with blunt razorblades and then eat them than have to listen to a full concert or album.

    From Japan I have an endless list of music I like. X Japan, Ayumi Hamasaki, Shiina Ringo, Ulfuls...

    From Taiwan I like Jolin sometimes, but find her a bit too 'poppy'. However, her latest album is a nice change from the past. S.H.E. is also quite good sometimes - their latest album has some decent numbers on.

    From Mainland China, the industry isn't so big and is hugely lacking in originality, but I love Faye Wong. Everyone knows her pretty much. There are a few more artists that aren't bad, but I can't call them to mind. I'm afraid I can't remember anyone specific from Hong Kong.

    As for Asian music from India, etc, I haven't really heard anything before so couldn't say.

    They're good ... but it depends on what you're looking for. Malay music is just <insert adjective here>. :shifty: Chinese/Taiwanese pop sound the same to me for some reason, and Korean music isn't really my style. I think Japanese soundtrack music is lovely, although I don't like groups like Morning Musume. Indonesian music is quite eclectic and you'll love it if you're into indie, alternative-rock, ballads, jazz ... or if you just want a laugh, because some of our songs are really funny. Artists from the Philippines have tremendous talent, but I've only listened to one Tagalog song, which was by Charice, so I can't really comment further. The only Thai songs I've ever tried listening to were by Tata Young, who has a really sultry vibe, but I can't speak for the entire industry. I haven't listened to any artists from India, Pakistan or the Middle East (except Harel Skaat :love:). If you count Russia as an Asian country then Russian music is lovely. Ever tried Julia Savicheva?

    I try to listen to music from all over the world, if you're wondering

    I don't know. I quite like this song, though.
