** Most of the world knows Rupert Holmes as the man behind "Escape (The Pina Colada Song)". The Philippines knows him mainly for his 1974 ballad "Terminal", which remains a staple of Philippine FM radio programming a good 40+ years later.



** The California-based band Fanny only had one Top 40 hit in America, but were fairly well-known as an all-female hard rock band some five years before Music/TheRunaways emerged. The band featured Filipino-American sisters June and Jean Millington, who were born, and spent their formative years in the Philippines. On top of her status as the singer of an early all-female hard rock band, June is also one of the first openly lesbian women in music, yet she and her sister are barely-known in their birth country, even among music fans from their generation.

* Music/LadyGaga, while indeed popular in the States, (though sometimes on the internet...she can be a bit of a BaseBreaker here in the USA), the Japanese love her. What with her unique fashion, combined with her pop songs, you could say, she was born for Japan. In fact, "Born This Way" notably made her the first and only American artist to top the ''Japan Hot 100'' (a feat normally reserved for Japanese artists), and one of only four non-Japanese artists to achieve that feat overall.[[note]]The others are Music/LeonaLewis with "Bleeding Love", Music/{{Mika}} with "Blame It On the Girls", and Music/TheWanted with "Glad You Came", all of whom are British[[/note]]

* In classical music, the Japanese positively adore FredericChopin. The International Chopin Piano Competition in Poland, where pianists from all around the world come to play Chopin's music and are judged on their performance, always have multiple Japanese competitors. Why else do you think they [[EternalSonata made a video game about him?]]

* How about Filipinos who were bigger abroad than they were back at home, due to the Pinoy's general preference for sappy love ballads over hard rockin'?
** For starters, there's guitarist Joey Santiago of Music/ThePixies. Born in the Philippines to Filipino parents, he moved to New York as a boy when then-president Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law. Despite that, they have yet to perform in the country, and mostly have a cult following among Filipinos.
** Before becoming a Pinoy Rock legend with the Juan Dela Cruz Band, Joey "Pepe" Smith was, for a couple years, big in Japan with two Japanese bandmates. His then-love for amphetamines gave him the nickname "[[MeaningfulName Speed]]" as the singer/drummer of hard rock power trio Speed, Glue, and Shinki.

* Music/IggyAzalea is hugely successful in the United States, where "Fancy" topped the US charts for a whopping seven weeks and became a defining song in American pop culture that year. Back in Australia? She's received terrible reception and is rather disliked for skipping her home country and its hip-hop scene, and for faking an American accent. In fact her (now cancelled) ''Great Escape Tour'' was only going to have her tour North America. However, this has become subject to change since she's facing a ''massive'' HypeBacklash and is firmly in a DeaderThanDisco status in America.

* Norwegian acoustic pop singer [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lene_Marlin Lene Marlin]] at the beginning of her career had notable success in France and especially Italy, the only place outside Norway where some of her singles were sold. Later on, she made a trip to China to promote the Taiwanese version of her album "Lost In A Moment" which included a cover of a song by popular Chinese singer Faye Wong. This move paid well and she enjoyed very good sales and several TV appearances there.

** In the Philippines, it's mostly the kids and teens of the early-mid '80s who remember American singer Rockwell's biggest U.S. hit, the upbeat AND off-beat "Somebody's Watching Me," which notably included his old friends (and his father Berry Gordy's onetime proteges) [[Music/MichaelJackson Michael]] and Jermaine Jackson on backing vocals. But his best-known song in the country is the serious, depressing ballad "Knife", which is especially popular to this day in karaoke bars.
** Singer-songwriter Stephen Bishop was fairly popular at home in the U.S., thanks to his hits "On and On" and "It Might Be You". But in the Philippines, he's still one of the most popular foreign artists of all time, with the latter song being especially beloved by his Filipino fans, and even lending its name to a popular TV series starring John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo.
