I was wondering what other kind of music the Asians listen too, especially the Japanese, other than music from Asia!?
I know the Japanese listen to Marilyn Manson and TATU
But what about music from Metallica,Kylie Minogue,50 Cent,Eminem....
Do you know!?

I was suprise to hear Mariah Carey song as the theme song on the drama You're Under Arrest. So i guess japanese listen to alot of American music. I heard that the Carpenters are still popular.

Well, we Asians definitely listen to different varieties of songs. Depends on each individual interests.
We listen & appreciate songs by International artistes but we also support our local acts as well.

If you want to know abt Japanese...BSB is definitely a craze there in Japan. I mean it really depends.

Like for say, my idol Takuya Kimura-kun really love Aerosmiths, Michael Jackson and he also sing Jazz music by Frank Sinatra,etc.

I am a HUGE HUGE fan of Victoria Beckham.
Ever since the spice girls came out. LOL
I used to be a HUGE spice girls fan like 7 years ago and she was my favorite:p

I think she is so awesome. I love her songs (if you wanna hear her songs, get "No Trix No Games" and "That Kind of Girl") The whole reason why I started wearing make-up when I was 13 was because I wanted to be like her LOL!!

English, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Indian, even classical, etc...

We get all of those here.

As for more europish stuff like french, german, swedish songs etc... we dont really get much of those.

Personally i hate english pop we get on radio though. much prefer the less famous bands i hear on channel mtv sometimes... but we are less exposed to those kinda songs in singapore. I've already got my hands full tracking chinese and japanese songs... so i don't pay too attention to english songs.

Currently listening to Linda Ronstadt, Swing Out Sister, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, Dave Brubeck, and the soundtracks from Princess Mononoke and Kiki's Delivery Service... How's that for a weird wild assortment of music? Nut hehe
