Your favorite songs not sung in English


#1

_Just Heard “A Minha Menina” by Os Mutantes (had to Shazam it of course) here in downtown NYC and almost crashed my car into a yellow cab, jamming out. Made me wonder what other songs in a foreign language (assuming English is your first language!) do we enjoy?

Jacques Brel, Amsterdam.
