Bonjour!

I thought for something different and oh so cultured we could appreciate the best that non-English music has to offer - from K-Pop to slutty Europop to Gregorian chants (maybe not the lattter). There's so much good stuff, so even if you don't know a lot of it I hope that this rate gives some of you a discovery or two!

The rules:

- Nominate songs that are MOSTLY in a foreign language, or at least are bilingual. I'm not gonna say they have to have no English at all because a lot of the time in K-Pop they drop in an English phrase. However, you can't nominate Let's Get Excited by Alesha Dixon just because she says "je ne sais quoi" in it x However, I'm sure you can make the judgement yourself as to whether you should nominate a song or not.

- You can nominate as many as you like, but there's no need to nominate your ENTIRE foreign language music library with 200 different songs. I'd say 5-10 is a good minimum, because hopefully nobody comes in, nominates two songs by their faves and leaves.

- Everything that gets nominated will go through, the next round wil be voting for your favourites and then the final will be a rate once we've whittled out the less popular ones.

- You have until about 19th June to do this, I don't want to kick things off properly until exams are through but I thought I'd open this up to leave plenty of time for nominations biggrin.gif

You my friend, have just won Buzzjack! <3

>> I'm assuming you're not doing this on a "most nominations = go through" basis? So I won't need to nominate 'I Got A Boy' again as someone else has nommed it. Right? <<

As they come to my head...

01. Kara - Step
02. Girls Generation - Flower Power (& 'I Got A Boy' if it's a most nominations go through, process)
03. Tiny-G - Minimanimo
04. Molly Sandén - Mitt Liv Är Mitt
05. Medina - Kun for Mig
06. B.A.P - One Shot
07. Michel Telo - Ai Se Eu Te Pego
08. BOA - Masayume Chasing
09. 2NE1 - I Am the Best
10. Girls Day - Expectation

I'll probbaly just do it as whatever gets nommed most is through, added it in now tongue.gif Depends on how many unique noms there are tho, if hardly anything gets more than one then obv there's no point in having only songs with multiple noms getting through.
