I have to agree with Geoff's sentiments on this one.

Whether it comes from Germany, Japan, Spain, New Zealand etc.

If i can't understand the vocals it's a deal breaker, no matter how great the music is.

I never really opened this thread because as a few of the above posters mentioned, my hatred for foreign language vocals is well documented. Completely pointless rubbish. Why not just got outside and slap you ballsack against a wooden post? Maybe a bit painful, so instead, just slap your half erect penis against a wooden post. That serves as much purpose as listening to music in foreign languages, imo. 

Anyway, if you're not German and you absolutely love wasting time, you must check out Tanner. Musically killer, and if they sung in English I have no doubt their debut would have been great. I only just found out this year that one of their guitarists is a long time member of Mad Max.

but if understanding lyrical content is so important to you, why not just read poems in English? Why listen to music?

Interesting point. I guess it's like watching a foreign movie without subtitles. It could be the best movie in the world, but if I don't know what the actors are saying then it isn't as enjoyable. Just out of interest i-man, do you happen to speak German?

Interesting point? Sorry Invisible Man, but that's the stupidest point on the subject I've ever read, lol. It doesn't even make sense. 

It's like saying why eat butter on your toast when you could go the market and buy a clock? How on earth is listening to music relatable to reading poetry? 

I listen to music with lyrics because I love music and songs. If I wanted to read, I'd read a book about a musician or an adult film star - not poetry. But I listen to music because I want to listen to music - not read poetry. 

And understanding music is important to me because I like songs I can relate to, and all my favourite songs mean something to me in some way. Something I can sing along to. 

"Aster atemmmshhesn hshhhesjgjhf shhuhjdfvhgkdjn jhvdhf hfjdhsghsdfh" is not something that means anything at all to me, nor can I sing along to it without sounding like a pointless moron. ;) 

Anyway, sorry, Darkstone, I quoted your above post for a reason. I thought this was really funny - "Whether it comes from Germany, Japan, Spain, New Zealand etc." lol. 

Anyway, sorry if that sounds harsh, Invisible Man - definitely not meant to be. I just honestly find that listening to music in foreign languages is a complete and utter waste of time. I could then ask you if lyrics are not important, why don't you just listen to instrumental rock music instead of songs with lyrics? ;)

Don't apologize. I agree with you.

not a fan of instrumental. I like singing with my music, maybe because it adds extra layer of vocal melody on top of the instrumental.

As far as what the song is about, I don't care much about that. And if I absolutely must know, there is always google translate. I don't think I catch all the lyrics of English songs that I like either. Also, you can still sing along to the chorus, nobody will judge you for mispronouncing or even making up words.

On topic, I can understand some German because I studied it, but am far from fluent...

Yeah,  I think it helps to have at least a rudimentary knowledge of the language. I wish I was bilingual, but it's just English I'm afraid.

Auf wiedersehen und Gesundheit.

Yeah, that makes a huge difference. I see no issue with someone who understands a language listening to music in that language - that makes complete sense. :)

Anyway, before we got sidetracked, I did make a serious recommendation in Tanner. You ever heard them? I accidentally ended up with their 'Ausser Atem' CD probably about 15 years ago now. It must have helped establish my hatred of music with foreign lyrics, lol, but I gave it a fair crack back in the day. Made me really sad because in English it might have been something like Bonfire's 'Point Blank.' Sounds like it would be a great album, in English.

I say if the melody is strong enough, the song can still be very enjoyable without full comprehension of lyrics.  I never discard a song simply because it's in a foreign language....

I do. Every single time, without exception. ;)

    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/  
    • mmmm. Erik great, verses great, solo typical but still good, chorus suspect.  Am I the only one who hears Flashdance in the chorus 🤔 🤣🤣🤣
    • I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that. 
    • Yeah, I mean that's a fair call. This is what people originally were concerned about and it's gradually happened and not many people have really noticed or cared. Tracking everyone everywhere they go. (if you scan in  )
    • I think generally that this new "threat" is being taken with a grain of salt. I'd like to think so anyway. Regardless, by the time we all say ENOUGH, the new powers put in place by ALL Governments and new "digital ID's" and tracking apps will be well established.  Well played, the powers that be, well played. 
    • New video for ”Lost In The Night”.    
    • I had a couple of videos recommended on youtube today so I looked at them. One was an interview with the doctor in South Africa who "discovered" and diagnosed the new variant, and she spent the entire interview saying how mild it was, and that the patients hadn't even actually shown any symptoms with the variant. The other video I watched was a mainstream, panic-endorsed media interview with two "top doctors" who both said that if this variant is as mild as suggested it is actually better to let it spread and become the dominant strain of covid.  The problem is, that around these two things, as soon as the hosts/reporters start talking, they're back in full panic mode, asking if borders should be shut, countries locked and doing their best and hardest to make sure that panic and hysteria is returned as soon as humanly possible.  So I want to know when a law can be passed where people in public positions that spread panic can be shot on the spot. That's my ideal wish, but in the real world of 2021, when are these panic merchants going to be stood down from their positions? It seems like this new variant is absolutely nothing at all that anyone anywhere should be worried about, and if you believe the "top doctors," spreading it should be embraced. So how does this whole panic hysteria storm get whipped up in the space of a few days? And why aren't people being held accountable for whipping up this madness and stopping actual life from ever continuing again?   For anyone interested, the two clips I saw were these-
