All of us probably know more than enough music in English. However, it might be difficult to get oriented in the music using your non-English target language which is the reason why this list was started.

As you probably know others (especially in your native languages), please share!

The list is sorted by language used in lyrics (even if it is used only for some songs), nationalities don't matter.  

Please remember that the list is based on the taste and memory of its participants and therefore cannot represent the whole specter of music in various languages. It's up to you to find your path and taste, enjoy :-)
