Hit Songs That Weren’t Always In English – If At All

No doubt you’ve heard ‘Gangnam Style’ from South Korean artist PSY. It’s a hot song and very dancible even though he’s singing in Korean. Even if you have no idea what the lyrics are about, you can’t deny a great song is a great song. Before you get all bent out of shape or something like this, know that there have been other hit songs that weren’t sung in English. Here are a few.

Los Lobos – La Bamba

When the hit movie came out in the 80s, Los Lobos took the Ritchie Valens hit and did it justice.


Los Del Rio – Macarena

You couldn’t get away fast enough from this song in the 90s.


Falco – Rock Me Amadeus

Coincedentally being released with the movie came out, Falco had everyone singing along in German.


Nena – 99 Luft Balloons

Although you may have heard the English version of this song, I mainly remember it in German.

With a name like ‘Sukiyaki’, you know it came from Japan. 4 p.m. did the English cover of a Kyu Sakamoto song that was popular in in 1963, both in Japan and in the US.
