Im very interested who are your non-asian favorite artists, if any Tongue I believe everyone has some favorite artist from his country or from other places than Asia as well, so?

To start with, my favorite are:
- Hoobastank (rock group from California)
- Zebrahead (same as Hoobastank Tongue)
- Red Hot Chili Peppers
- Type O Negative
- Apocalyptica
- KoRn
- some Nightwish and Evanesence songs
- variety of Czech punk groups, for example Exn!to, Houba, In Public ILL, Kohout plasi smrt, Punk Floid etc.

Is this really the right section for this? Confused
Well, anyways...

    1.No Doubt (I was really into them before I got into Japanese music, and I still like them somewhat)
    2.Kelly Clarkson (I like some of her stuff...)
    3.Josie & The Pussycats (So they're not a real band. I still like the songs. Tongue )
    4.Gwen Stefani (I don't like her new stuff as much though...)
    5.The Fray (I think a few of their songs are pretty good.)
    6.YounHa (I can count her Korean stuff here, like mango Giggle )

And then there are singers/groups that I have like, one song of theirs that I like. But I won't put them here. I only put them if I like 2 or more of their songs.
And there may be some I'm forgetting...maybe I'll add more later. Shifty

I don't really mind Gwen Stefani's new stuff all that much probably just because it makes for some pretty high energy bar songs. But if you'd go as far to say that you like the No Doubt stuff better I'd have to agree with you on that one. Nod

Here's my cream of the crop list of my favourite artists; I'll put some good youtube videos by each to show you what these artists are like. Don't feel obligated to listen to them all but feel free to check them out.
Jack Johnson - Flake (Live)
Modest Mouse - Dashboard
City And Colour - Save You Scissors
The Shins - New Slang
Howie Day - Collide
Radiohead - Idiotique
Spinto Band - Oh Mandy
The Postal Service - Sleeping In
Arctic Monkeys - I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor
Andrew Bird - A Nervous Tick Motion Of The Head To The Left (Live)

I pretty much listen to only Japanese pop music, with some Chinese pop from Jay Chou, F.I.R, S.H.E etc. For non-asian artist, I only have a few in my music folder and I've been trying to get rid of some that I no longer listen to. With that said, I still enjoy music from:
  • Norah Jones
  • Josh Groban
  • Michelle Branch
  • Delta Goodrem
  • Dido
  • Kenny G
I'm thinking of getting into more Jazz music lately after watching "Swing Girls", and I'm highly anticipating the Jazz album featuring Ai-chin works to be honest.

Japanese music has been my thing for quite a while. But that doesn't mean it's the only thing I listen to. I'm definitely a big Linkin Park fan. And there's a few other Aussie bands out there I like (ever heard of Thirsty Merc or Wolfmother??). So I pretty much listen to alot of music genres. Whether it's hip hop, rock, you name it. Wink Oh, I'm also a fan of the All American Rejects, they rock! Smile

Actually, Sir Elton John made some really amazing music.

Also, John Mayer. (I don't know if I spelled that right).

Also check out the Blue Man Group. They're awesome. I so want to be one.

I listen to music from all around the world.

Bob Dylan and John Lennon are awesome.

I listen to some old school ska like The Specials and Madness.

I like Ska-P, a Spanish third wave ska band.

And I listen to a lot of Scottish folk music.

I really like The Corries and Alistair Hulett.

And I like other Scottish artists like The Fratellis.

And Snow Patrol are my favourite Irish band.

I listen to lots of classical music.

Especially Antonio Vivaldi.

And I like random things like Yoda Pop and Vennaskond.
