Do listen to music in languages beside your own and English? Around here, most people don't care for music in non-English languages. They seem to listen to primarily what their friends and those around them do...I think it's that way in most places. If you turn on the radio here, you will not hear anything but English...even in Twin Cities, a major metropolitan area to the south of here, the only place on the dial you will hear Spanish is on the Spanish language-only stations marketed to immigrants. The appeal music has seems to disappear once it is another language...even if the lyrics are nonsense in either language, and the music is really good...for example, take "Dragostea din Tei", the major Summer 2004 hit in much of Europe, and later across the world. Despite having major chart success, the song had almost no radio airplay. It has had some popularity recently as a novelty song, but you get the idea... The same thing happened with Ricky Martin, who had success internationally singing in Spanish, but did not enjoy popularity in the U.S. until he began to sing in English. Personally, the music I listen to is in a bunch of languages...I like dance/electronic music, the cheesier eurotrance/dance kind. The lyrics aren't really that important in this kind of music, so I enjoy hearing good stuff from other countries in languages I generally can't understand in song...Croatian, Russian, French, Farsi, etc. So, do people in your area normally listen to music in foreign languages? Or do they reject it because they can't understand it or whatever? And why do you think American radio and media is so aversive to non-English music?
