When I listen to Japanese music, I always think of what it would be like if I had vacation there. Do you ever feel like going to some country because of it's music?

Sometimes I'm curious about how was it like to be in that country particularly like South Korea. Now that there songs are very popular here in the Philippines even if we don't understand the lyrics in Korean thanks now that they have English versions. I'm very fascinated about there fashion style and how serious they are in perfecting there music.

hallo, hm.. actually i don't think so. i think i can feel so if i watch the drama of the related country. for example, when i watch the taiwanese drama with the title "dreams link" they make the drama in Paris. makes me really want to visit Paris cuz the scene is great. but i don't think so if i just listen to the music, cuz i don't even understand what they talk about in their lyric.. he8..

The most common foreign music that we get to listen here are those from USA and Europe. When I heard country music from USA, it made me wish to go to places like Montana, or Tennessee. I love the instruments that are used, the voices with that distinct accent of theirs, and the beat. I also love to listen to chants which make me want to visit Italy perhaps. Some latin songs make me wish to go to Mexico, or Spain. :-) I do wish I could travel to those places.

If I become addicted to a foreign music, I really don't mind going on that country after all. But if I am addicted to a foreign brand i.e. Honda Automotive then that's the point that I crave to go to the country where it is originated.

When I listen to music from my favorite band which is the metal band Soulfly then I want to go to brazil to see them sing in live, and when I watch documentary on China or Japan Oh my God I want to there as soon as possible.

I don't think so. A music won't make me want to travel to that country. However, the delicious food and beautiful scenery will always attract me to go to a foreign country. I love China

Hi there, I listen to foreign language songs though understand not but I feel I am charmed by the tune and the music. If it is too good I fancy - what if once I could have been to that place and see the real people in the real life situation and listen a live song!!!
