[PronunciationFilter] The title is: Crathadh 't 'Aodaich & Zbadba
from the album Mo-Di by the band Mouth Music
. I think the title is Gaelic but I'm not sure. How would I say the title? Or what is a close approximation of the true pronunciation?

I really like metaphors and I really like song lyrics. Every once in a while I run across a particular type of cleverly extended metaphor in a song lyric. I'm trying to develop this idea a bit and looking for more examples of this particular thing. I've included some explanatory examples I've found. [more inside]

My 3yo son memorized a song from a cartoon
on Youtube. He walks around the house singing it all day. We think the song might be Korean, but we're not sure. Is he using actual words or just making sounds? (apologies if this is wildly offensive, my wife and I are just curious).

I'm trying to revive my rather rusty Spanish. One of the green's favourite tips for language learning seems to be to immerse yourself in TV programmes/films/music in the target language. So I want to start listening to Spanish-language music, and I need some recommendations. [more inside]

I'm looking for a song I heard on the radio a couple of times about 6 or 7 years ago. The music was interspersed with a Spanish language lesson in it that started out seeming normal and got kinkier as it went on. Ring any bells? [more inside]

Can someone identify the words spoken at the beginning of Ground Zero's “Revolutionary Pekinese Opera” (“Opening ~ Flying Across The J.P.Yen”)? You can here the phrase spoken on youtube here
. I'm reasonably sure the voice is speaking Chinese.

Why doesn't mainland Europe produce as many popular music artists than UK / US? Is it purely down to the language barrier?

Karaoke in Japanese. Am looking for tracks with a karaoke version on YouTube for an event. This old post
has some great ideas, but sadly half of them have been removed from YouTube. What Japanese language songs do you sing at karaoke at the moment?! The more contemporary the better

I'm looking for a word that describes consistent loops of music in one's head. Not just earworms, though of course earworms are part of it. I'm talking about a radio station in your head which plays a song more often than you ever heard in actual audio life. [more inside]

In the CD liner notes for the McGarrigles "French Record," partial translations of the lyrics are printed in English, but not in French. Fully expected to find French lyrics online, came up empty. Can anyone provide a clue?

How do you sing in Chinese and other tonal languages? Does the music follow the notes as usual but deviate a little bit to express tones (which could explain the sort of warbly psychedelic sound of the Chinese singing I've heard), or does the music itself dictate what tones are used - in which case I'd guess lyrics are mostly limited to flat tones since singing is mostly level notes.
