Where can I get my hands on this stuff? I'm especially interested in the Swede speaking German, as I'm learning German.
I don't exactly know how you can get your hands on a Swedish stewardess who speaks German, especially the one I heard on an SAS flight in 1973.
Laura Pausini's latest Spanish-language CD is entitled "Escucha." ("Listen.") I'm sure you can get it cheap on Amazon.
How about if I merge these two concepts and give you a Swede singing in Spanish? "Baladas en Español" by Roxette. All translations of their English-language songs. (Did they ever record a song in Swedish?) I thought they were the original instrumentals with new vocal tracks until I started learning the bass part to "Habla el Corazón" ("Your Heart is Speaking"), the Spanish version of "Listen to Your Heart." I noticed that there are subtle differences and they in fact recorded the entire song a second time.
As a language tutor, I strongly recommend if you're a beginner learning a new language that you try to only listen to native speakers. You'll have a hard enough time getting the vowels and consonants right, much less the cadence, tone of voice, etc. We Americans tend to find people speaking our language with a foreign accent to be charming, but that's not a universal attitude: just ask a Frenchman or a Japanese. You probably would be better off not learning to speak German with a combination Swedish-American accent. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

ive not heard czech, but i have heard serbian.
when a man speaks russian, it sounds rough, but when a woman speaks russian, it sounds like music.
one of my most pleasant memories of recent years was waking up to the sound of my fiancee speaking with her mother in russian in the room next to mine. sounds like birds, almost!!
Lately, I've been liking Italian the most. Dutch and Polish are harsh. I don't like the German rhythm. For some reason I don't mind Hebrew. It has those throaty sounds, but they seem to be of lower frequency and not as bad.
I also can't help cringing hearing Gujrati.
