    I enjoy Asian classical music of a variety of sorts including Chinese opera. Every style and tradition has examples that are of high or poor quality. (And youtube clips of high or low recording quality) Reaction to language and music is largely conditioned. I sometimes get a sick feeling from a lot of what is considered "popular" music that people spend all kinds of money on and the performers are usually cute looking. Some of it is so predictable and the singing without nuance that I feel a bit nauseated when hearing it for long periods at work or in a restaurant. Not everything commercialized is poor quality, but wow a lot of it is and yet people wear headphones and drive to it all the time. Every time I hear the "Heart and Soul" progression with a new set of words slapped onto it I dread each chord that I know is coming and there is nothing that can be done to stop it. Why are those four chords so interesting? It amazes me like it would some in this thread if people were doing that with the examples of music given here.

    They're obviously picking certain examples of Asian singer Toonia. I listen to Asian music all the time, and I was cracking up at these examples. Of course shitty singers are found in any culture.

    I think it just depends on the singer and music.

    This will not end well...
    But it will at least be poetic, I suppose...

    Hmm... But what if it does end well?
    Then I suppose it will be a different sort of poetry, a preferable sort...
    A sort I could become accustomed to...

    Of course. This thread isn't meant as a hardcore proof for what I said. I think we all intuitively know what you said.

    Just chill, and marvel at the beauty of this eastern song, which shares great wisedom with us. On the other hand, this song would probably make Confucius write his fortune cookies for rappers instead.

    Nah, that's just my default style. I naturally speak and think like this --- while being rather chill. It takes a bigger effort on my part to phrase things with open-endings, or in a manner many would recognize as outwardly cool. Only worth it for situations where this is necessary or useful.

    Most posters seemed to have read the OP in the same way. Thanks for clarifying, but there wasn't much left to the imagination without your input.

    Tried. Like Kalach, I lasted 15 seconds. I think I'll pass for the fortune cookies instead.

    Lethe´s is a great post.

    I´m not enjoying the bashing of Chinese singers. I have Chinese, Lounge and Chill Out music at home, and it is Amazing.

    The worst rubbish I´ve ever listened is in Spanish, and it is called "cumbia villera". Make a YouTube search yourselves. The lyric´s contents go against many sites´ TOS.

    Indeed, I think the OP confuses poor singers for a poor language.

    Now, this sounds good in Mandarin:
