Do you mean Chinese and Malay Songs? Although i am from asia, I DO speak chinese, but i don't like the style chinese artist sings. It was good last time, but these days, they appear just to increase their popularity, not really to singing.(more to shouting) JPOP is MUCH MUCH more better~~

to be honest, my moms obsessed with korean drama, and she LOVES their music (unlike my dad, she at least likes the guitar, dads a classical music fan XD totally against). Me? i dont hate it, i like SOME of it. We all have different preferences. In terms of "asianess" we asians all like our own style of asian music. Thats just how it is. Like many of us here, we have different appreciation for each other's style of music. I like japanese, but i dont really like some of the rock in China, and the rap because it makes me feel like they're doing a poor job of copying Amerca. So for me, Korea and Japan are ok, China is...ehh....so so ^^'

MEEE TOO i love them.. they dominate my ipod..
my friends think its odd though.. but i don't care


.. i dont think its odd.. its just that its not mainstream music.


whats mainstream?


mainstream is like the "most favored/famous anything" in the masses/majority of people around, usually in the fields of arts,fashion, music. .in this case, music..

oh, so sorry for saying asian music (pertaining jap,kor,taiwanese music) is not mainstream. well, here at philippines, western music and local music dominates. some people appreciate asian music but, majority are really just into mainstream music. philippines is in asia and well, asian. but the forum somewhat suggests that 'asian music pertaining to jap,kor and taiwanese'. besides, jap/kor/taiwanese exports lots of entertainment stuffs more than the phil so, it think that's the logic behind it. hehe..

peace!

it's not the language barrier for me, i don't listen to asian music because most of it is really pop-y. even the hard core metal is pop. i may find one or two songs i find tolerable, but for the most part it feels too staged, like i've heard it somewhere before, like it isn't genuine.

Of course they are getting overplayed on the radio. Music gets overplayed because it is popular. You can't blame the artists if their music is popular.

I like American music. I know I have already posted on this thread, but many of the comments are posted by people who say American music is centered around sex and such, but I think it just depends on what genre you are listening to. If you listen to rap, sure you are going to find a lot of songs are centered around sex and money. But not all songs are like that. I am a huge fan of American music and most of the songs I like are meaningful. I like songs with good lyrics.
