Same here. I like to sing Japanese songs.

 

I can pick up the lyrics in those songs really quickly, easier than english songs, actually. xd.png

 

Pick any song on my mp3 and I could probably sing it.

Well... Of it's a language I somewhat understand tongue.gif I sing along to Sweedish songs just as much as I do to Norwegian songs.

 

And I sing along to French and Spanish songs to, if I hear them often enough to pick up the music. I've had to sing in both of those languages before for school *used to know Silent Night better in French than English and Norwegian rolleyes.gif *

 

And I had to learn a bunch of Portugese songs for Capoeira~ That would be all the Portugese I know tongue.gif

I can sing a song in Greek called Christos Anesti - it's an Orthodox Easter thing.

I also sing a few Korean songs though, I love Korean. xd.png

*foreign =|

 

Anyway, yes, I mainly listen to foreign ones because they're easier to tune out. Of course, you guys all know that I love the Naganegi Flamenco. (ナガネギフラメンコ)

Somewhere along the lines I started listening to Japanese music 90% of the time >>;; The songs I can fully sing along to are usually the ones from the albums that I own (since I'm too lazy to lift my fingers to do lyric searches if otherwise) but usually after listening to a song for a while, the words get "absorbed". Japanese is awesome that way, I can sing in it without knowing what the heck I'm actually singing about xd.png -is trying to pick up Japanese as a third language to remedy that-

 

Some of my favourite singers are KOKIA, Chiaki Ishikawa, UVERworld, L'Arc~en~Ciel amongst a bajillion others :3

uzumoreta shinjitsu kono tenohira de tsukami torou

READY STEADY GO

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com

Rammstein is also one of the few (only) foreign bands I listen because I don't think of English as foreign language anymore. Sonne and Moskau are the best!

 

As foreign to other people, Metsatöll. Folk metal FTW! It's full of ancient wolf power.

I love singing in Italian and French. German's tough for me, though. I'm terrible at the consonants. :\

 

Oh, and Latin! I adore Latin. Best language ever.

I also hear many German bands and sometimes, but not really often other languages.

I can actually sing one song in Spanish. "Sigo aqui" (the english version of "I'm still here" from the movie "Treasure planet"), I like it so much more in Spanish than what I like it in English and Swedish.

 

I also have managed to sing "Danzai no hana", "Alone", "M.o.n.s.t.e.r." quite well too... Though, I'm still not good at all in Japanese... Heh.. ^^'

No love for Gaelic songs here?!

 

They're one hell of a pain to sing to, but it's well worth the effort.

 

I haven't had as regular access to compilations/other albums, which is by far the easiest and best way to find these songs, there's not a lot of them on Youtube. Two that I absolutely love and managed to find good versions of, though:

 

Dulaman, this particular version is by Anuna.

Marie Mhilis Bhrea, by Solas.
