    Just heard The Taking Heads Psycho Killer and it got me thinking about songs that have foreign words in them.

    Blondie, "Sunday Girl."

    From Wiki: "For Blondie's first greatest hits album The Best of Blondie in 1981, producer Mike Chapman created a special mix which incorporated one verse sung in French. The bilingual version appears on the 2002 compilation Greatest Hits."

    That special mix apparently hasn't made it to YouTube. Bastards.

    First one I thought of was LaBelle's Lady Marmalade, but since it was taken, I'll go with one that should be obvious.

    (It's Michelle by The Beatles. I won't leave you hanging with only a Youtube link.)

    (Mods: We should have a Youtube link option on SJ.)

    Roxy Music - "Do The Strand" ("Laissez faire le strand!")

    A reverse example, Walloon French gibberish with two English lines, "You are the king of the divan!...I am the king of the divan!". What "the divan" is and how you can be the king of it is anyone's guess... Plastic Bertrand - "Ca Plane Pour Moi"

    The Beatles' "Across the Universe" contains the Sanskrit chant: "Jai guru deva om."

    (If that was one of the YouTube videos linked above, I apologize).
