Some people need to understand the lyrics to appreciate the content.t.d. wrote:Why wouldn't you be able to enjoy music in a different language? If it sounds good then it sounds good, no?
I understand it without sharing it, if that makes sense. My brother has to understand every bit of a song until he forms his opinion of it, so I totally get it. In some ways he gains a better appreciation for the songs he likes than I do, but on the other hand I have a much more eclectic collection because I'm not so picky.Dante wrote:I'm one of those Tom speaks of. I need lyrics with music, and they need to be English because that's all I understand.
Do you have a last.fm?Dante wrote:My collection is still rather eclectic, but still based on English language songs. The bulk of my listening is rock, and pop princess, which quite a few people find hard to reconcile. I tend to get into the rock more, because it generally goes deeper and is much more complex. With the pop princess stuff, its the catchy pop hooks combined with the female voice. Taylor Swift sounds worlds better to me than say, One Direction because her voice compliments the music much better than a male voice. To my tastes anyway.
That said, there are exceptions. Robbie Williams for one, Michael Jackson being the big one. I like Mark Owens voice quite a lot too, because he's very much an accented singer, and its an accent I quite like.
I do also like some blisteringly simple rock. AC/DC for example , who are in some cases so simple I can play them on the drums. It helps that both Bon Scott and Brian Johnson have ridiculous and distinctive voices too.
Not yet, it's on the "wait until it's on sale" list though.Martin wrote:He is better. Did you hear 20/20 Experience?Ydrah.Tom wrote:Ooooo, not sure, it's close for me. You're probably right though.
I'm on rock your body. Another beast of a tune.
Can you recommend some celtic tracks.. (something like your top10) I've occasionally heard some and like the sound but am not familiar with any artists and don't know much about the style itself.Maverick McKillshark wrote:Many of my favourite songs are Celtic .....
I can recommend some Welsh stuff. Meic Stevens is very good. "The Welsh Bob Dylan". In fact Dylan himself has said he's a fan of Stevens.ivandaman wrote:Can you recommend some celtic tracks..

Yeah I know I can google and search but if you are already an expert why not take advantage.
