    It took me a long time to learn Kobaïan and be able to fully appreciate the music of Magma but it was worth the hours of lessons at Shipley College.

  9. I'd guess that well over half the music I listen to is either in languages I don't understand or doesn't have any words (though might include wordless vocal sounds). English lyrics are a real turn off actually. There's some stuff I know is in English but I would hate to know what the real words are as it'd probably ruin my enjoyment...

    German sounds great in quite aggressive songs. Die Toten Hosen are/were ace. Not sure about Die Artzte though, bit odd.

    Or you can always do two versions of your own song, with an eye on the lucrative Japanese market.
