Some of my favourite Vietnamese songs.
I just can't help but be captivated by some of the wonderful Vietnamese music that exists here. Below are a couple of songs that are so so beautiful and really do tug at the ol' heart strings
The Autumn leaves may fall and the Sun may set each day, but there is always a new beginning. So is the message of the following song to a little girl who has lost all hope.
This next one is about a couple, deeply in love and who have promised to spend their lives together, when the man is suddenly forced into marrying a woman from a rich and powerful family. This song is her sad, heartfelt lament. (Give it a chance, it doesn't really get going until the 1 minute mark)

If the Vietnamese can come up with gems such as these why do they force us to listen to crappy K-pop for hours on bus journeys?
Actually this asks the question as to whether K-pop can be classed as 'world music'? It's probably one of Koreas biggest exports!!! Reply to this
