Ásgeir Trausti - Heimförin (Icelandic folk music)
Kaizers Orchestra - Knekker Deg Til Sist (Norwegian alt-rock)
Chetes - Camino a Casa (apparently this counts as pop rock in Mexico)
I guess songs in English by non-native speaking artists are fine too.

Rammstien - Sonne
I like their monumental expressionist style. Very teutonic, but in a way that is strangely infectious.

Oh, and I don't think anyone could forget Moldova's finest.

I prefer Huun Huur Tu because I am disgustingly basic.
An appropriate song for my mood, by the greatest performer of all time:
While I'm at it, my favourite song by my second favourite chanteur:

Dragostea Din Tei is the 00's equivalent of Gangnam Style. If the internet was more mainstream then we'd have ended up with countless drunken middle aged women dancing to the numa numa song.

The only song that soldiers of all sides loved and listened to in WWII. Even though it was first recorded (and written) by ze Germans, the rest of the world took it to heart. There are English versions out there too.

Quite the fan of neo-classical Icelander Ólafur Arnalds. Not his best album, that would be ...And They Have Escaped the Weight of Darkness, but a nice song nonetheless.

I was introduced to this a number of years ago on this very chan. I can't remember the board or anything. The band is Ю-Питер, and the song is Дети Минут.

Enjoyable in small doses. There's only so much harmonica a man can take.

They're trying to represent Switzerland at this year's Eurovision.

While we're on about Eurovision, Finland's entry this year is a punk band where all the members have Down's Syndrome.

Well that was just terrible by anybody's standards.
The one by Dur Dur Band was fantastic. I love the lofi sound all those type of records have, and the really specific kind of delay/reverb on the lead vocals that sounds like a poorly set-up PA.

It's reminded me of this:

The actual words just don't match up with the emotional weight I've assigned to this song in my ignorance.

Saw them live. I'm fairly certain she's singing in Russian but I'm not entirely sure. They're really brilliant.

As translated by Eric Bentley:
Oh little box I carried in my flight
So as not to break the radio tubes inside me
From house to boat, from boat to train held tight
So that my enemies can still address me
Right where I slept and much to my dismay
Last thing at night and first thing every day
About their victories, defeats for me
Oh please do not fall silent suddenly

They seem to have added the subtitles recently and now I know that some of the songs are actually about pretty mundane topics likeAladdin's Hardware Store and Hokkaido.
|>>|| No. 10945
You'll want to turn on the subtitles and note that Sonotone is a French brand of hearing aid. The gist is that getting old sucks.

I didn't think MC Solaar was that old, but then I realised Cinquième As was released in 2001...
Guess I'm getting old, too.

The Japanese have been mixing metal/rock with j-pop for a while though. Maximum the Hormone are a prime example of it.

The playlist link is below the picture and pretty camouflaged. I tried to post a capture with a red arrow drawn on but got "duplicate entry detected" (or similar wording.)

If I remember correctly there was a furore and boycott of their gigs for being transphobic.

As soon as I heard the opening I remembered I had booked marked that song ages ago you've started me on a short Odyssey now of going through songs I never went back and re-listen to.
I rediscovered this one by them.

There's better ЛУНА songs but I feel you lot will be more likely to give it a listen if there's nearly naked women who get oiled up. A couple of them get off.

You are correct. Song is pretty good too. Now can you link one of the better ones?

Went to a foreign wedding. This was nice. Shazam worked.

Imagine somewhere so cold that you're not having to constantly deal with being a bit sweaty. You could put on a sensible jumper and some nice thick long-johns while you sit by the fire. Heaven.
Anyway, now that I have your attention Astro Bunny is pretty good. Taiwan has a good music scene from what I can tell even if you have to accept the odd ballad to appease the brainwashed mainland audience.

The video is at least worth a watch.
And I can't get enough of Cybertruck now.

Japanese is the most beautiful language for vocals I've come across. Everything ends in a vowel so it's naturally melodic.

That was adorable. The dance moves were cute but slow, however the drawn effects contributed to a bit more going on and tied it all together. I feel better for having watched that video.

Came across a a Colombian camsite gender bender with particularly good taste in music. Pretty nice tune.

I've been really into Yat-Kha, a Russian band who do Tuvan traditional folk/rock

It has been a week since I found this. I am unable to listen to anything but.
City Pop seems to be really fucking sound. Cheesy, funky, 80's. It's vapid but self aware. I'll stop before I go full Bateman. I will happily write a few paragraphs about exactly why you should enjoy this, if anyone will read.
My particular favourites are:
00:00: Plastic Love - reminds me of the girl who lives in the clubs, has endless energy, and would love you back if you could just keep up with her. But you can't, and she'll always want to stay out and do coke instead of enjoying a mug of horlicks in the bath.
32:41: 告白本人 - Not sure what song she ripped off, but it's got a great chorus.
37:40: 真夜中のドア - Sounds like it was made yesterday by a futurefunk band.
42:58 Oh No, Oh Yes - Think she's channelling Mariah Carey here, but less mental.
Those are a few of the hits. I hope someone finds as much joy in this as I have. I've never danced more.

I've been enjoying this, it very much opens as a beep-boop kind of song but you will end up listening to it on repeat. The lyrics are just:
>You and I in solitude. Same here. Trying to change, trying to forget.
It give me a sad regret though over all the things I didn't do in my 20s before I got a career and that. Travelling as an end in itself seems wasteful but I feel like I missed out on living abroad at some point. Maybe it's just that I haven't been out of the country in nearly 10 years.

I love foreign-language music. It's nice to see that other people like it too. I will now proceed to post links of pop music from communist countries, or countries shortly after they renounced communism:
Neoton Familia are the Hungarian ABBA, and the absolute best communist-era pop group:
Te Vagy Minden (earlier in their career)
In fact, you can see how long and sort-of varied their career was by comparing Parbeszed:
...to the late 1980s, when two of the three women were gone and they were effectively the backing band for the remaining one:
(A lot of their songs are also available with English translations, but I would not recommend listening to these in most cases).
Other countries include Ukraine...
Russya, Bud Shcho Bude, the first communist-era song I ever liked:
Yugoslavia (Dubravka Jusic)...
(warning; if you like this one, it's been uploaded with the wrong title and is actually called Plesacica, I think)
It took a lot of research, but I even found an Albanian song I like, although my eyes just glaze over when I try to read this woman's name:
After the collapse of communism, Lithuania seemingly had an entire industry of music that sounds like 2 Unlimited, and is therefore all fantastic:
Soniclove are the best:
But there are others too:
To wrap things up, let's chill out with some comfy chillout bedtime tunes:
Juda Tavo Rankos, a Lithuanian song from 2002:
Kummush Razzoqova of Uzbekistan, Unutna Meni (1986):

The youtube algorithm recently spat out a city-pop album from the 00s and it's really great:

Nena, the German group behind 99 Luftballons, had plenty of other bangers too:
That song also has a longer, 12-inch version which is even more brilliant:
Nur Getraumt is very good too, but I don't know if Vimeo embeds its videos like YouTube does:
