Friday Music - Some Greek, some French, some English, and some Korean


In my quest to stay current with music, world music, I am looking at top 40 from around the world and randomly picking songs to sample.


From the Italian Charts: Maître Gims - Est-ce que tu m'aimes ?
Verdict: not bad.  Don't quite get the French (need the lyrics to get acclimated to sung French).  I'd listen to this again.





From the US charts: Drake - One Dance (feat. Wizkid & Kyla)
Verdict: It's OK. The music is way to melancholy for my taste. If this song were in a mix I'd get through it, but definitely not my kind of music.





From the Greek charts: Γιώργος Παπαδόπουλος - Δεν Το Αντέχω
Verdict: Not bad.  Enough up-beat beats (despite the lyrics).  I would add this to my playlist.






From the Korean charts: Akdong Musician (AKMU) - 200%
Verdict: That was interesting. The video is rather cute.  Not sure what they are saying in Korean, but as a linguist I find the code-switching pretty interesting. This wouldn't be a bad song for background music for me.



I also tried the Japanese charts, but had no luck finding a video that wasn't a cover of what was #1 this week. Maybe next week I'll have better luck.
