See I don't know what I'm doing here, or why I'm even writing this... but here I go.

Foreign Music. Most people don't care to listen to it. The feeling is like this, "I have no clue what they're singing about or what they're saying so.... whatever." I believe that music is the universal... I can't say language because that's English... but I can say that it's the universal voice or every country. They can express whatever they want with music. Hey we get away with it! Take rapper Eminem for example. He basically got to express how he felt with teh world through music... most people do. That's why they play an instrument or sing. Who cares if you don't understand what exactly they're singing about, because deep inside, you do know what they're singing about. It may not be on a concionsus level, but somewhere deep inside the brain...

in a place that the scienctists and doctors have yet to figure out and explore... it's there where you can find the understanding of the music. Don't believe me? Listen to music from another country, in some language that you don't know. What's got you tapping your feet? What's got you bobbing your head? it's the music. You may think it's the beat, and it may be, but it is also your understanding of the music.
