Do you enjoy listening to foreign music that you do not underderstand?
I tend to listen to a lot of songs in languages that I do not understand and yet get the feel of the music. Am I among the few stange breeds or there are many like me out there?
I certainly do. I like listening music from all over the world - specially Iran, Ethiopia, and Turkey.
Yes, I often listen to the local Hispanic language radio station in my car despite not speaking Spanish myself. Like you said, it can be fun to get the feel of the music. Part of my reason is also to expose my young kids to the language in the hopes it will be easier for them to pick up later on. Also, in gloomy winter months the Hispanic music is especially fun - it feels like I have a fiesta in my car!
I love music. Of all the different types, I prefer instrumental music over vocal music.
I am particularly fond of rhythmic music. I don't pretend to understand all the different types of rhythms, but I like music in 5/4, 7/8, and 9/8 meter. Think of Brubek's "Take Five" for example. Many Greek, Turkish, and other Near East rhythms fall into the above categories along with more standard rhythms such as we usually hear. I am also interested in the origin of "foreign" music.
Should I hear vocal music in a non-English language, I tend to listen to the sounds that the words make rather than try to understand the words. If I enjoy the entire musical production, I don't worry about anything else.
Yes..First the rhythm than the words.
And for the songs which I can understand; I may prefer it because i can relate to the lyrics. Music in itself is a melody, whether or not one can understand the meaning of the song, everyone can enjoy it.
Speaking for myself, when a song catches my interest, it's normally because of the catchy rhythm or most often, the emotion that the singer is able to convey through her/his voice. And so, I can try to guess regarding what the singer is singing about.
i love listening foreign music also

i dont think it has much to do with the lyrics more the music itself, as music is an international language. so if the music is good than it doesnt matter to me what is coming out of their mouths
Because I'm into lyrics, not often. But there are exceptions. For example there is a french Canadian singer I'm into Couer de Pirate who makes sweet infectious music. I'm also into Ali Farka Touré and there is the odd other foreign artist. If the emotion is there, I can overlook not being able to understand the lyrics.
