I know I made a status about this a few days ago but dammit I’m passionate about this

Slavic languages, especially Russian, get painted as harsh and gross-sounding, but I think they’re beautiful and melodic, even soothing. Beauty is in the eye if he who holds the bees, I suppose. 🐝

I feel the same way regarding German. People are too quick to dismiss it as too "angry/harsh" sounding when it can sound stunning in different contexts.

it is interesting to hear people dont like languages like german or russian in singing, because honestly they are two of my favorite languages! when i was younger and exploring music i listened to a lot of german metal and rock music, same with russian! and sure those are "harsh" genres but it never stuck to me that those language sounded ugly.
