|great list.. it looks like i will dig a lot of these artists haha.|
|I love all of these bands, especially #1... that's been in my playlist the whole day lol.|
|disco's the homie i'll check some of these out.|
|For some reason I actually know 5|
|Green: That's actually somewhat surprising.|
|2 and 10 look interesting, cool list btw|
It's this one. I understand absolutely 0% of the words that are coming out of his month, but he's a pretty powerful singer.
|Scuro: Yup, been listening to 2 sporadically all day lol.|
Green: Yup, that's him alright. Not really into Chinese stuff, but Beyond was a pretty great group.
|There was another song by them I knew, I'll go searching for it. Love his voice, I'm gonna have to look up the lyric translation to see what it means. Normally it's hard for me to get into foreign language stuff because I don't understand the language, but even though I don't understand Chinese, I can still dig them.|
|He's fantastic, indeed. It's a shame he went out the way he did.|
|^^ That's my favorite Beyond track. Very radiant, vocally. Strong stuff.|
|How did he go out?|
|Yep, that one also sounds familiar. I think I have a CD of them somewhere...|
|He ended up dying accidentally on a Japanese variety show back in '93.|
