I listen to a lot of foreign-language music. I don't know what any of the songs mean, and have been surprised several times when I look up translations of the lyrics. A hard rockin' song with aggressive guitars usually turns out to be a sensitive song about love and loss, when one is listening to music in a different language.

Thusly, I am embarking on an epic quest to learn several new languages, so I can enjoy these songs more fully. Thank you, Dr. Pimsleur, for your easy-to-use language aquisition system! I'm soon to embark upon the Quest for Nihongo. Just have to learn French first...
