I find it kinda entertaining actually.

God knows what they think they're really saying.

This is not unlike europeans getting tattoos of Chinese characters.

Nothing wrong with Asians trying to sing english songs. I think Utada Hikaru has done it a few times successfuly. That would be because she was partially brought up in the US.

But if you're about to sing in a certain language, for god's sake please make sure you are fluent. Try imagining someone who can only speak English trying to sing Japanese/Tagalog/Mandarin/(insert any other Language). It is as horrendous as a non english speaking person trying to sing in English. It'd be just as bad as any of William Hung's songs.

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. =\


yeah i know what you mean but they don't know that coz they don't speak english. whereas we do

ps. its not made for english people, its for asians (that doesn't speak english)

i LOVE it when it makes no sense. its hilarious. I especially love asian clothing that have nonsensical english all over it. Sometimes you get lucky and someone wears a t-shirt with phrases that imply something the makers of the shirt probably didn't want to imply. I'll just let your imagination figure out what kind of phrases those are. Its like when people get chinese character tattoos without knowing what it means...err...except less permanent.

It's ok to have english in the lyrics as long as the song is good in overall rating...
