I mean charted at all, not just the hits. The one-hit wonders thread got me thinking about this. Since there probably aren’t a ton of songs that were completely in another language, let’s include songs that were only partially in, say, French, or even only included a line or two in another language. Include a link, if you think it’s appropriate.
A few obvious ones completely in another language:
La Bamba, both by Richie Valens and Los Lobos (#1 for both)
Oye Como Va, Santana (#13)
One that I mentioned in that other thread:
Sukiyaki, Kyu Sakamoto (a megahit all over the world)
An example of one that is mostly in another language (Portuguese) would be
The Girl From Ipanema, Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto (hit #5 on the US pop charts)
An example of a song that only had a couple of lines (French):
Lady Marmalade, Labelle (#1 in the US and Canada)
What have you?
