One thing that has always interested me is foreign languages. They intrigue and elude me at the same time because I have to work like hell just to master the basics of any language other than English.
In spite of or maybe because of that fact I love foreign accents and hearing conversations in language other than my own.
There was a time in the 170s and 80s when pop songs occasionally included a little French, or Spanish. Is it me or is that a little old fashioned now. Yes there is more “world music” and artists confident enough to record in their native tongues but in the UK I don’t seem to hear much in the way of foreign language music. Maybe I’m listening to the wrong music channels.
Anyway, off to listen to Neun Und Neunzig Luftbalons …
