Why do people singing in English sing in the American accent? Is American accent just musical or is this how it has always been?
Dunno, but it bugs the fuck out of me.
But it's not a 'neutral' voice. To you it might be, but to me that's a clear American accent he's singing with.
There are many exceptions though:
Definitely more common for Brits to sing in their native accents than Australians though.
Because "American English" is normal English.
I hate to break it to you nerds but the reason Brits and Aussies usually have an easier time putting on an American accent than the other way round is because American English IS default English.
The other accents are literally just slurring their words like they're intoxicated.
I mean Christ, AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO NOTICES THIS SHIT?
>Definitely more common for Brits to sing in their native accents than Australians though.
That's because you need a cultural and musical legacy to inspire you to sing in your native accent :^)
That's pretty silly of you to say 2bh. The actual reason is, despite the fact that foreign ladies DO love our accents, Australians sound like hillbilly Englishmen. That doesn't lend well to singing often, especially if you have a thick Australian accent like I do.
Are you fucking serious you god damn britbong
>durr whats more likely ~>1 million English singers throughout time adopting an accent that's been popular for around 100 years due to the majority of pop music coming out of the U.S.
>or ~1 billion Americans that have lived for the last ~200 years speaking like brits have sung only for the last ~100 years
this bait is trash
>Americans have the most beautiful accent.
and the 90s too
and the 00s since we're at it
Bringing up demographics with that flag is hilarious
The Thai ladyboy is right. Brits made up most of their dumbass accents on purpose. They used to sound like Kelsey Grammar or Tom Wallace. Irelands accent was influenced by their native language, and Australia and New Zealand are just slightly modified britbong accents.
Yet you're the one with Shariah zones. It seems you're far more ineffectual than your own ballsack at controlling your minorities - why don't you just copy us like you always do in order to better yourself? Nothing wrong with that. B^)
It's more to do with Americans being a huge country with far-reaching media. Please don't take offence when I say that the American accent is not enjoyed by many outside of your country.
The American accent is the most neutral one of them all.
>In 1776, both American accents and British accents were largely rhotic. It was around this time that non-rhotic speech took off in southern England, especially among the upper class. This “prestige” non-rhotic speech was standardized, and has been spreading in Britain ever since.
>Most American accents, however, remained rhotic.
Is it true?
It's a shame.
With such a nice voice she opts for radio friendly, mid-tempo safe bullshit.
She's made enough money where she can actually experiment, but doesn't.
hah, it's funny because most of the movies in their theatres are american movies, so their brains are wired to think that american accents = famous actor lmao that's what i call conditioning
Some regional accents are pretty enjoyable. Like this one:
I'm from California though, and we sound awful IMO. Almost as bad as australians, "crikey me dinog!"
lol literally the reverse is true.
That a good song over there, better than most of negro rap hophip music and whitey who tries hard to become one
and i already mentioned in the first thread: because when you sing you have to open your mouth completely so the notes come clear
old worlders have lisp because they don't open their mouths
Was enjoying this video until she started talking about a Christian preacher and claiming how God put him in her path.
No matter their color, if they're catholic, I will march to the holy land with my brown, vertically challenged brethren.
Admittedly, this is a cover, and it's not as good as the original imo, but not all of her singles have been like Hello. Rolling in the Deep was pretty up-tempo, even if the lyrical content was about the same shit.
Aight, true reason right here:
>centuries ago, Americans still retained the British accent
>it wasn't until famous broadcasters in the early horse races and baseball stadiums started using what we call today the "American" accent that it caught on
>Americans started using this because it was easier to understand due to the pronunciation of the consonants, as opposed to the British accent which is easier to pronounce due to skipping consonants
I do like this website -- i can talk to people living across the Atlantic, in past centuries! Amazing technology
>it wasn't until famous broadcasters in the early horse races
I consider it bathroom graffiti on an international scale.
>Accents are a social construct
you tried to sound intellectual there but you failed massively and don't even know why probably
You must be so red in the face.
This chick Texan? I know she isn't Tennessean or Kentuckian
Tyneside is the default English accent and only fuccbois would dare argue. This is to be written in stone and chanted for the rest of eternity. So says kot.
True, all I'm saying is that even though accents aren't purely a social construct (by any means), social constructs can sometimes emphasize them. Pride in which class you belong to have this effect.
People like that should be strapped to pallets and airlifted to Manitoba to be eaten by the starving polar bears.
I want to know the sounds she would make as the bear bites into her cubic yard of lard.
She has fat on her fucking forehead.... her FOREHEAD!!! how the fuck do you let yourself get to this point, jesus christ. Is this shopped? What are the stages that someone goes through to get like that?
I hate fat people like hitler hated jews...... fucking disgusting.
>Is this shopped?
it's not shopped. these women are cam whores and they get naked and suck people off and show the cum in their mouths. I'm not even joking, you can look it up but remember to keep your bucket close.
Yeah, we learned this too. Apparently Shakespeare sounded like Americans do today because he was alive before this big accent change in England. So, technically, Americans do Shakespeare most accurately.
You're partially correct. THIS is how many believe the English talked during Shakespearean times:
Not exactly an American accent, is it?
American living in Britain here. Americans that think their accent is default or neutral are just incredibly isolated and have absolutely no self-awareness, a few fucking idiots even think they "don't have" accents. You pronounce loads of things differently than they are written, and I often have a very hard time making myself understood.
>budder instead of butter, wadder instead of water
>erb instead of herb
>potato instead of potato
>mannaise instead of mayonnaise
>plummer instead of plumber
>muzik instead of music
This could go on for a very long time. I don't know what kind of idiocy you must posess to think that your accent in a language your country didn't even invent is the "default" version or that you have ascended to some sort of god-like status that means you don't even have an accent.
Also these threads are always full of Americans that buy into this "we speak ShakespearIan English, it's the Brits that changed!" horseshit. There are isolated communities of people living off the coast of Virginia that have retained their colonial accents due to isolation, and guess what, they are basically just English West Country accents from today. Look up "Tangiers Island".
But at the same time, there's all these Anglo actors invading our cinema industry because while Theater is mostly for fags and women here in America, it's still a respectable and normal pursuit of alphas in the UK, Australia, etc.
There is literally an island of people in Virginia that still speak in Elizabethan English, they have what is basically a West Country English accent. I'm not sure where my fellow burgers are getting this "big accent change in England" meme. It is empirically retarded.
The accent of Tangier Island, Virginia. This is the closest you will ever hear to pure, preserved Elizabethan English:
>b-but it's the English that developed new accents, not us!
>Accents are a social construct
The NZ and Aussie accent are the result of English, Irish and Scottish children mixing with each other in schools, the Aussies had slightly more Irish influence (since many convicts were Irish) and we had more Scottish influence. Both are mainly influenced by Southern English accents though
>americans thinking their accent is a "neutral voice"
