I am actually using music to learn Chinese. Find Teresa Teng to be a good start, as it is clear and simple (and repetitive). Hope you post the lyrics (Chinese, Pinyin, English translation? soon!) "
I completely agree with you, CY. Indeed, Chinese music is a perfect start.
The first musician who helped me learn Chinese was also Teresa Teng. I liked her songs, no matter if some people think they're a bit old fashioned. On the other hand, Jay Chou's mumbles are sometimes hard to understand even for a Chinese, but I like him. And Faye Wong pronounces clearly, but her lyrics are somewhat surrealistic.
However, thanks for getting me awake.
I've been very busy lately, so I've had no cybernetic life.
