Yep I Often Listen To Their Songs Even Though I Can't Understand It Very Often *I Am Aware Of Some Basic Greetings,Some Basic Words That Anime Often Use And Numbers*  But Through The Invention Of Technology That Help Us To Communicate IN Just One Click I Can Read A Lot Of Song Translation That Really Help Me to Internalized What Am I Listening Of Through Online Translator Like Google  ....

In south america, We listen to maaany musics in english, and I know the most of the brazilians only speak portuguese but still listening to international music. It might be the same thing about japanese music, in this case, the most of the Scandal fans out of japan probably don't speak japanese. I'm studying japanese, buy it's really difficult to understand the all song.

Yes, great melodies and great voices are universal, no matter what language it is sung in.

I have 0 understanding of Japanese besides what I've picked up from watching anime lol. 

I love listening to Scandal because its super catchy rhythmically, the instruments, and even the vocal melodies are super catchy. Their song writing/music composition is extremely solid. 

I catch myself humming along or even singing (try to ,at least lol) the chorus' all the time.

I swear I didn't copy you Bchoun, I have the exact same answer x)

Now I usually look for translations on Internet, because it's interesting to know what a song speaks about ... and it's a bit sad if they make efforts to write good lyrics and I don't even try to see their full work

But it's true ! We don't need to understand Japanese to appreciate their music  Nice One

I dont understand them mostly but some guys trasnlate lyrics to english(god bless this guys) and I like to read them when listening the song. Later I memorize the lyrics sentence by sentence and when I listen the song I know what they re singing.

Well i am not so good when it comes to japanese but that doesn't matter for me. I concentrate on music and it's very good. Still, i read translated lyrics and that's how i know what they are singing Wink

Of course you are not the only one. I know some people who don't listen to J-music because they don't understand the lyrics but it's not that important to me. I focus on the music and treat vocals as a special kind of instrument and just listen to the melodic line. I like to read lyrics to some of my favourite songs to improve my Japanese reading though.

Like many of us here my Japanese sucks so I always get the English lyrics for each song, but of course you can like a song without understanding a word of it.
