I also grew up listening to radio. Then cassettes came around. But whatever I listened to was predominantly Bollywood and ghazals. Just like you I like some English songs. But, like you despite being proficiency with language, I don't find myself at home with English music. I also like very tiny percentage from newer artists and music. I don't think it's a wrong thing or any deficiency on my part. It's normal. One doesn't need to develop taste for anything forcefully.Hi
Let me start with a bit of personal background as that will be relevant for my questions. I was born in a traditional middle class family in MP. Hardly watched any movies, tv or radio probably till 8th-10th class. Got selected for an exam I prepped for and left after 12th, went to Mumbai. I listened to music rarely on some sunday shows or while playing antakshari till that time
If you want to expand your taste, natural progression for you would be Indian Classical, Instrumental & Fusion. You would identify with that type of music much better.
