The dolcit tones of the Donegal accent sure are honey to the ears though...

Français: deux points, bien sûr, not for how it sounds but because it has mostly regular irrealis verb forms (subjonctif, conditionnel). The ability to talk about things as options, hypotheses and thought experiments—the ability to think ahead, is sadly missing from Swedish since approximately 30 years.

Swedish has two cases but my dialect has 4-7, depending on how we count. Polish has 8 cases; the same functions and endings as Scanian + vocative. Sometimes when I study Polish I feel strangely at home, like coming back to a world which is supposed to have ceased to exist 100 years ago, offering tidbits of my mothertongue. The same with Lithuanian, though I have to get used to stressing the locative /??/-suffix. It feels provocative and scary. ^^

Somewhat bored with my Standard American accent I like the Scottish accent (but do I? 'Scotty' from STAR TREK TOS, was a Yank, and Mel Gibson, BRAVEHEART, is Australian / American). How well did they do it?

I find some versions of the German accent interesting (ex. Karl Michael Vogler)

Closer to home, Chuck Yaeger's laconic West Virginia accent became the model for cool-under-fire American astronauts.

Yes, I favor military backgrounds, coming from one myself.

Languages and accents :
interesting, for sure those out of USA have the ability of speaking foreign languages anywhere from 2 to 4 average. Myself I speak fluently 3 plus.
"Language is Power".
accents : not all accents can be appealing to human ear. There are accents you want to close your ears and run away.
My favorites on the accent lists are le français et l'espagnol.
