British and American accents in music
I wonder why a lot of British singers use American accent in their songs.
Is that in order to be more popular in the USA and all over the world
because the American accent seems to be more usual for the pop-music?
Also I have the following questions for the Americans:
When you hear British singers sing with an American accent
how often do you know for sure that they are not American but British?
(Of course I assume you didn't know they are British from other sources before you heard them)
And since you know they are not American, do you always guess
that they are British (and not Dutch or Swedish or whatever)?
That's really very interesting.:)
Thanks in advance for your answers.
BTW, I like both accents, each of them has its own charm :)
