Whet Your Appetite: English Language J & K Music

I’ve found that the greatest barrier for folks getting into J-Pop/J-Rock/K-Pop is the language barrier. So to help introduce people to the world of Japanese and Korean music specifically, I’ll be sidestepping the language barrier for this post and highlighting songs that predominantly feature English lyrics. I’ve tried to feature a variety of genres so feel free to check them all out and see what you think.

1. Ellegarden – “Red Hot”

2. Beat Crusaders – “Hit in the USA”

3. Kobukuro – “Layla” (Derek & the Dominoes Cover)

4. Utada Hikaru – “Simple and Clean”

5. Love Psychedelico – “I Am Waiting For You”

6. Oceanlane – “Walk Along”

7. Wonder Girls – “2 Different Tears”

8. X-Japan – “Endless Rain”

9. BoA – “Eat You Up”

10. Rain – “Love Song”
