    A song in another language you know you like? No good translations? Translate them and post them here.
    (Note: Pls don't use a website translator or else we could just do this ourselves)
    For me, it's half a way for you guys to know more about chinese songs and half to improve my horrible chinese skills

    I don't think many people want to know more about Chinese songs.
    As Jim says in "the end", the West is the best

    I can enjoy songs in other languages without needing to understand the lyrics or only half understanding them.

    Rock Nacional is a favourite genre. Soda Stereo the best known exponents.





    I enjoy some Indian music but not pop.

    Mongolian Throat singing doesn't need translation.

    You're in a minority then (so am I)
    In a poll I made 6 months ago people said that a song was best when it had good lyrics (vs good singer and tune)
