Does anyone have any recommendations for Spanish or Italian music? I like rock, electronic, new age, dance and rap but I'm not too picky about genres. As long as you can point out one noteworthy artist that would help me at least a little. Por favor y gracias!/Per favore, grazie!

I'm open to any language and I know I didn't ask for French but if you have anything to share for French music then I'd be interested to hear them. My favorite New Age music is actually composed by a French man.

Would you be interested in Russian and Polish (with some Ukrainian mixed in) folk music? That's what most of it is, but I can give you a link to a discussion thread with Russian rock. There's also some good cartoons around that I can give you links to. I'll go dig out some of my favourite Italian operas. :-)

A couple favourite Italian operas, I haven't watched these versions all the way through.

I like to listen to Italian opera on cd and follow along in the libretto printed in Italian with English translation. I will buy the opera cd only if it comes with a printed libretto booklet. Some operas come with the libretto on a bonus cd. I never buy those because who wants to listen to an opera sitting in front of a computer. If you are not familiar with Italian opera I would first buy an opera on dvd or Bluray that includes English translation. Then when you know the story move on to the cd with translation booklet wherein you can read the entire libretto in English alongside the Italian.

There is a great cd out there by Placido Domingo called Bajo el Cielo Español. I love the music and best of all it comes with a booklet with lyrics printed in Spanish with English translation.
