The first is Cpop. Yep, good ol' modern Chinese music (中文歌曲). Now most of the people reading this blog would probably not understand the lyrics but I know there are people out there who like to listen to music even though they have absolutely no idea what the singer's going on about. If you are one of this types, then go to this website: Baidu. This site pretty much works like a search engine for popular Chinese songs and you can find almost anything on it. Of course, you don't understand Chinese and want more help, leave a comment. Beware, most involves romance/love and similar themes; I got bored of the speed/styles and you prob. will too.
The second is Kpop. Now I am not Korean so I have no idea what the singer's on about in this case but hey, they sound good lol. If you want a good place to download some of these songs (in English too!) then, here's a good place: Bww2. Sign up and download away!
The third is Jpop, for more information, see above.
The fourth is one of my favorites and that is hip hop. Favorite artist is the infamous Tupac (2pac, 2 pac - which one you prefer). Forget the history and the west coast/east coast stuff, enjoy the damn music. His songs at their best outclasses everything in the modern rap/g.rap/hip hop scene. You have your views and I have mine; this is mine.
I'll list ten of my favorites (Not necessarily in that order):
- Dear Mama
- I Ain't Mad At Cha
- California Love (feat. Dr. Dre)
- Fuck The World
- Hail Mary
- Unconditional Love
- God Bless the Dead
- To Live And Die In L.A.
- Thugz Mansion
A few other genres like rock (emo w/e), heavy metal etc I just don't like. It's impossible to understand what they're saying, the only thing you hear half the times is drums and banging. Of course, good bands and I don't deny that.
So these are some of my favorites, but I also recommend some individual songs such as Don't Worry Be Happy (Bobby McFerrin - Amazing Voice), I'm All Outta Love (Air Supply), You're Still The One (Shania Twain). There is simply too much to point out, these are just some of the ones I found that I enjoyed.
So, I have shared mine music. But I am more interested in what you like? I'm always looking to broaden my music horizons so please feel totally free to leave a comment about your recommendations.
