And yeah, I do wonder how a foreigner would enjoy a song like A Queens Story, for example. Shit, if I wasn't from NY and old enough to remember the 90's, I would be like "what the fuck is dude talking about".
Well, you are in America and that's the country that's "being watched" by the rest of the world so you can bet your ass most countries will be very interested in your culture. The same can't be said the other way around. America is a very patriotic country and most people are mostly just concerned about what goes on inside their country and not much outside of it. (not generalizing, but I'm saying most are like that) And majority of the time there is an American born person that is knowledgeable of other parts of the world, chances are they've been around the world.
Think of it this way, America is at the top so it'll be in the mind of those who stand below but America itself doesn't have to think that way since they are the top and have nothing to see below them.
