Thai pop music

Thai pop music certainly different to what we are used in the West.

Despite my initial dislike of the genre, I've become more appreciative and I can even say I like a couple of songs.

What's unclear is why.

Could it be the result of an eight-month drip-drip effect (the same songs are played EVERYWHERE), me losing my music taste or is Thai pop actually good music?!

I'm all about enlightenment so will regularly feature a few of the most popular songs to give you a taste of what they call music in Thailand.

Here is the first - enjoy.

Thai pop isn't to be confused with Thai music. The latter is the country's traditional music which can be heard at ceremonies and festivals where it is accompanied by traditional Thai dancing.
