How many here are not native English speakers? It'd be interesting to see if there are actually many guys with English as second language so interested in English music.

Dutchfag here. The music i listen to is about 90% anglosphere, mainly because the UK and US produce excellent music. Appreciating lyrics isn't exactly my strongest point but my English is good enough for me to understand and enjoy most songs.

There aren't many actors as earnest as Nicolas Cage. He has a bad reputation because he takes so many shit roles, and as a result directors aren't going to give him any good roles, and the cycle goes on

However, the ability is all there. Too many plebeians dismiss him as before seeing Leaving Las Vegas or Adaptation. No matter the role, he is completely commited. This is why his insanity can seem so genuine at times

Truly an underappreciated actor

There aren't many lyrics in pop music worth hearing anyway. Sometimes music is more pleasing to me when it's in another language because I can't understand how shit it is. I can pretend it's something profound

Another dutchfag here

I'd say that at most a third of the music I listen to is from anglophone countries, and yet some 80-90% has English lyrics. Somehow most artists feel the need to be international, and English is the lingua franca. Icelanders and frenchfags seem to be the exception, at least in the world of western pop music.

Kinda sucks, because other languages can sound so pretty - but i can hardly blame them, considering that I'm contributing to it by posting on an English language board

Marijuaan is much less common in Japan than in America and Europe. There are marijuana plant in Japan but people don't smoke it; for having marijauna you go straight to jail, even if you didn't smoke it. High schoolers do a lot of things for fun. After all, I don't think every high schooler in America smokes weed, do they?

Where I live is Kansai reigion, but in a very small town, so there isn't much music here. If you go to the cities in Kansai, you can hear all kinds of music, lots of energetic hard rock type mostly. I believe Osaka is where many of the noise rock bands originated.

>>54296933

It depends on its genre I suppose. I wouldn't listen to a J-pop artist without understanding Japanese, because the instrumentals aren't interesting.
>>
bulgarian here, I can understand what the vocalist is singing about most of the time, unless he has a weird accent. Though I don't care about lyricism that much

United States citizen here I don't speak English I love music !
>>
>>54296077
I'm dutch, most of the music I listen to is instrumental but when I listen to music with lyrics they're often English. It isn't neccesarily that I go looking for music that's in English it's just that most music is in English. I don't have a problem With this it just bothers me that English has become the standard for Dutch artists, which just doesn't make any fucking sense to me. Well it does, it's because they think that they wouldn't have a chance to make it big outside of their country if they don't sing in English. Still, though it surpises me that so many musicians choose to express themselves in a second language instead of just having some integrity and singing in the language their best at.
I'm done ranting now.

Russian here.
>>
>>54297900

Japanese lyrics, I think, sounds more impressive in Japanese itself than in English. In the same way, if you translate English songs into Japanese, they would sound strange.

I think because Japanese speech doesn't have to put tone on the syllables, you can "stretch it" a lot? I don't know the verb for what I want to say.

>>54296698
My favourite Japanese artists include Boris, DJ Krush, Otomo Yoshihide, Ken Ishii... only Boris features Japanese lyrics prominently, and I rarely listen to music for the lyrics.

>>54297356

>>
>>54299570

Boris and Midori always comes up as examples of good Japanese artists... yet here in Kansai I haven't met anyone who likes them. Most of the people I meet only listen to shit J-rock, and the lyrics in those songs is mostly crap anyway.

The Indie bands are the fucking worst. They try to be all poetic, but they all fail miserably. I just don't get it, if you want to be real, if you want to be poetic why would you choose a second language? Everytime you've been in a very emotional situation you've expressed yourself in the language you're best at, why would you water it down by badly translating it?
Unless you've studied english poetry or something, keep to your own language if you want to be real, or whatever the fuck that means anyway. And even then, be like Herman van Veen or something, who sings dutch when he's in the Netherlands, sings in French when he's in France, sings in German when he's in Germany and sings in English when he's in a country where they speak fucking English.
>>
I'm honestly surprised that there are a lot of Spanish / foreign music in the share thread.

>Tell us about Israeli artists you like then. I only know about a few.
Mati Caspi, Arik Einstein, Meir Ariel, Kaveret, Habiloim, The High Windos, Ehud Banai, Shalom Hanoch, Aharit Hayamim, Hava Alberstein, Tamuz, Ariel Zilber, Gazuz, The List goes on...

There's also a fair share of great jazz israeli musicians if you're into those things. Artists like Omer Avital (personal favorite of mine), Avishai Cohen (bass), Avishai Cohen (trumpet), Shai Maestro, Gilad Hekselman, Eli Degibri, Rotem Sivan, Nadav Remez, etc...
