    I believe I'm at the stage of development where I can't stand listening to music in my own language, because it feels insincere. I've got a moderate playlist full of anime openings/osts and a llittle j/k-pop, but I know there has to be a bigger world out there. Watcha got?

    For example, SNSD's "The Boys" sounds awesome, until you listen to them sing it in English and realize its appallingly egocentric and immature.

    I don't listen to my own American pop-music because if it ain't about sex or fame, its about some other redundant bs.

    My bad, the Altaic family as well. Only the Chinese music I've been exposed to (which would be movies sadly).

    Rammstein, Eisbrecher, KMFDM, some other German bands. A remnant from when I actively spoke the language.

    1. What stage of development is that?

    2. Why does listening to music in your native language make you feel, yeah, that?

    3. What happens if you learn the language of the current song you're listening to? Change again?

    * I know it is not the most original meme or whatever, so what.

    You can probably find lots of stuff....but for the most part bands that make it big pretty much have to sing in English as that is really the language of the biggest markets.

    I can really only think of Rammstein. ABBA recorded music in Spanish as they were huge in South America.

    Guess I'm going to be a real fly in your ointment here.
    Really love listening to the old German drinking songs accompanied by the sound of beer steins banging away on the tables.
    Really have taken part in that sort of mayhem, but was fortunate enough to gtf out before the police charged in to break up the party.
