I love how Northern Germanic languages are being sung:

Danish lyrics

Norwegian lyrics

I also like Finnish and Saami in songs...

Finnish example

I don't usually like how Russian, Belarussian, etc, sounds in songs. Here's an example of a nice song where the harsh sounds of the language ruin it.

That song is in Russian, not Belarusian. I agree that this one sounds ugly. Here's my favourite song in Russian. Much nicer.
I seriously doubt you've heard many songs in Belarusian. Here's one sung by Eurovision winner Rybak :)

Edit: OMG the Danish song. Do they have more in Danish? Seems like they mostly sing in English and Faroese.

Isn't Angelica Agurbash Belorussian?

She is, but she sings in Russian. Pop singers don't generally sing in Belarusian, it's mostly heard in either folk songs or pagan metal songs.

Many Dutch people have a clear disdain for their own language and think it is the most hideous language on earth, yet to be honest I think it sounds nicer and more engaging than German does.

Or also, do you know anything similar in Danish? ♥♥♥


I love the way Dutch sounds, yes. Though I think German also sounds wonderful.
