Do u undertsand the lyrics of the english songs ?

HOnestly speaking I have to concentrate a lot whenevr I listen to most of the english songs , in order to understand their lyrics .

Specially when the song is sung by the Americans .Their accent is totally weird and most of the words they just eat up .

When I listened to Metallica Unforgiven Part 1 for the first time and even Sting -Desert Rose, I just couldn't understand the lyrics at all , yes not even a line ., unless I downloaed the lyrics from the net .

IS it only with me , because I am not used to the american accent as I am in India .

Do the folks living in the US for a few years understand the lyrics as easliy as they understand the lyrics of hindi songs .


Please be honet with ur answers , no need to flaunt .

Sly, I thought you would be able to understand the lyrics better by the standard of the words you use here

I guess for me there are always songs to which I have to concentrate to listen to the lyrics (ever heard informer ) but otherwise its pretty easy

Some singers

dont have a very clear diction and hence you may have problems understanding them.

But if you listen closely and get used to it you can make out the lyrics.

'Understanding' what the singer is singing about is a different thing altogether.

I understand most of em but if the music oveshadows the singing then it gets tough cos the words are barely audiable.. (a. la.. Rob Zombie).

I get a line or two when I am listening to an English songs. I can understand if I pay attention, but I don't as I am not a fan of English music. Mostly I listen to Hindi songs - both new and oldies, no remix - but since my car tape was broken until recently, I had to listen to the radio. I always want something to be on when I am in a car or on my computer... usually Hindi songs. If Hindi music is not available, I turn to English, but don't pay much attention to the lyrics...

I have problems understanding lyrics of Heavy Metal type of songs. Those songs are too "noisy" thus drowning the lyrics. Since I don't like that type of music I really don't care. Some rap songs are hard to comprehend mainly cuz these rappers come up w/ new street lingo everytime. It took me forever to figure out what Bling Bling meant!

Bling Bling refers to jewellery. The noise it makes. Its kinda hard to explain.
