There you need an Italian language.
( Although with Italian - I don't know about "faster pop songs" - when Celentano sings, to me Italian in this case still sounds perfect.)



Adriano Celentano - Soli - YouTube

And when Joe Dassin sings in French - French sounds awesome to me, where in other cases French doesn't sound like anything outstanding...


Et si tu n'existais pas - Joe Dassin - YouTube


So it all depends I guess.
I love this French song

I think this song gave me an idea of learning French back in time - I liked the sound of French there so much.

Filipino is often beautiful when sung, but not so much when it's spoken

One of the most beautiful Filipino songs

CHARICE - Maalaala Mo Kaya (studio vers.) - YouTube

Maybe we should do a thread on worst sounding languages when spoken or sung. Unless someone can point out a recent thread with the same theme

I wouldn't have enough experience listening to various languages to judge properly but I do like the sound of songs when sung in " espanol "

English too of course

german sounds ok when its a heavy metal band

Here's a lovely little song, sung with very clear diction in beautiful Brazilian Portuguese.

I also love the sound of Greek, in this song:

Spanish sounds best in music, but not that much in speech.

French, however is better when spoken, but not much in song.

Tonal languages, so I guess most of Asia, and Africa. They sound like music even when spoken. My native language is English and I will say this along with the Latin languages can be sung beautifully, but aren't generally beautiful. I think the other Nordic, German, and Russian, along with Chinese, and other Eastern European are very harsh.
