As above mentioned, back when I couldn't understand a word of Japanese, I listened to the songs and sometimes was disappointed when the translations weren't what I expected them to be.

Now that I understand some Japanese to understand songs somewhat, I find that I don't enjoy the song any more or less than when I couldn't understand a word. I think music is about the arrangements and how it is carried out, the emotion that it is sang with, and does the voice fit the style of music. I find that sometimes the lyrics hinder how we appreciate a song, since sometimes the lyrics are so bad we refuse to listen to the music a second time :3.
