i really HATE it when chinese artists use english in songs and it doesn't even make sense. in my opinion, it kind of cheapens the song. It would only sound good if they use it RIGHT and say it clearly enough to understand. :)
korean artists have good pronounciation, so their's aren't that bad.

what do ya'll thinkk?


sorry if this thread was already madee. =\

lol. It's actually kind of hard to come across Japanese songs that don't have at least one English word somewhere in the lyrics.
Posted 9/17/07
some asian artists can make it sound good others cant. It's all about the pronunciation and the connection of words. sometimes it makes the song flow better by using English. I know alot of Japanese artists like MINMI, m-flo, Namie Amuro, Emi Hinouchi, Utada Hikaru, ARIA and more that make the song flow w/ the English along and it makes sense. Korean too, but it's easier for them to pronounce English than the Japanese(from what I've observed being around them).

So like someone else said, you dont like it, don't listen to it. And It's just like in America or different countries(im pretty sure they do it too) when people use other languages like Spanish and French in songs. It may not be as frequent but it's there.

it is ok as long they use the correct pronunciation...

I think its total bullshit for people to say they enjoy Japanese music with English words but they call foul when an English artists uses a Japanese word or two.

Personally i say if your going to sing a damn song stick with one language Unless its a quote for an interlude or ending to a song.

I don't care, it doesn't change weather or not I enjoy the song or anything.

yes, this is exactly what i am talking about. If you are chinese, you'd probably know. if you guys ever heard of the song "Waiting For You - Anson Hu" The song is really good, but the english doesn't even make sense and it sounds weird.
