So, I'm bored, and thought I would set out to see what happened in the music scene in Hungary when X Japan were having their own milestones in Japan and the world. :D

1982
X is founded.

In Hungary, V'MOTO-ROCK releases a song called Jégszív (Ice heart), with Ferenc Demjén on lead vocals, who goes on to be an iconic singer of two generations. This song is an evergreen favourite in my country.

1987
X gets a stable line-up and wins a contract with Sony.

In Hungary, THE iconic band of the country, OMEGA releases its 13th album titled Babylon. They are our very own Rolling Stones (they grouped in the same year, 1962). The song Babylon is of course now considered an all-time favourite. If anyone knows Scorpions' White Dove, that's originally an Omega song.

1988
Vanishing Vision comes out.

In Hungary, heavy metal band Ossian releases Acélszív (Steel heart) that becomes a metal hymn in the country. One of the first metal bands to become known mainstream in my country.

1989
Blue Blood gets released.

In Hungary, heavy metal band Pokolgép ("Time bomb") releases its iconic anti-war song Háború gyermeke  (The Child of War).

1991
Jealousy gets released

In Hungary, solo singer Zorán releases a song titled "A szerelemnek múlnia kell" (Love has to fade), which is a radio favorite evergreen still to this day. I don't think there is anyone in my country who doesn't know this song.

1993
Art of Life is released

In Hungary, another iconic band, EDDA releases a song, Utolsó érintés (Last touch). This is a song we used to dance slow at school proms. LOL. It's a damn perfect rock ballad. Comparable to Endless Rain.

1996
Dahlia is released.

In Hungary, Zsuzsa Cserháti, blessed with her awesome vocals, releases the album of the year on charts, called Hamu és gyémánt (Ashes and diamonds). This is also the year when nothing important happens in rock music here.

1997
X Japan comes to an end.

In Hungary, Ákos rules the charts with his songs, like Ilyenek voltunk (Such were we).

I hope you liked some of these :)

It's the first time that I listen to Hungarian rock music. It's cool. But Liszt, Bartok and Kodály are very famous in Korea and their music is played a lot. They must be musical heroes in Hungary, right?

Umm, they are taught in school curriculums, yes. And of course, classical music fans love them. I don't really listen to classical music. I know that Japan still uses the Kodály method to teach music: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kod%C3%A1ly_method

Oh, really? I've heard that only old ages listen to the classical music in Europe, and it seems to be true.  :'( :'( :'(

Quite a few of my friends actually likes to listen to classical. :) There are some stuff that I like, Dvorak's New World Symphony, and I like quite a few of film scores, and some of Yoshiki's classical compositions, but I'm not much into Bartok or Liszt, or Mozart and stuff like that. And I don't regularly listen to such stuff, once in a while maybe.
