Indonesian music?

I know about tradicional gamelan music, but I'd like to listen some "modern" things. I love rock, but I think I won't understand a word. Could you recomend any famous slow, old, love song (in the mood of the Filipino kundiman, I love them) of I can find any English translation? I would learn better with music!

Thanks in advance to you all!

    what's your favorite band or singer? I love music so much :D

    Listening to songs and paying attention to the lyrics is one of the ways to learn languages. But since song lyrics are sometimes poetic and do not use proper grammar, you'll find some difficulties to get the meaning. Still you can use google to get the English translations. I'd like to reccomend a band named "Kotak" since you like rock. It's a modern rock band, but don't worry, they have slow songs as well.
    :)
