    In these days, we’re seeing a movement away from the English language’s domination of the music charts..;)
    Please feel free to recommend some of your favorite songs , albums which are sung in a language other than English .

    “Le Temps de l'Amour” — Françoise Hardy (1962)

    So ahead of its time. An elegant, sophisticated would-be James Bond theme.

    “Ui! (Você Inventa)” — Tom Zé (1976)

    (letras Português)
    Você inventa—grite
    Eu invento—Ai
    Você inventa—chore
    Eu invento—Ui
    Você inventa o luxo
    Eu invento o lixo
    Você inventa o amor
    Eu invento a solidão

    You invent—shout
    I invent—Ai
    You invent—cry
    I invent—Ui
    You invent luxury
    I invent trash
    You invent love
    I invent solitude
