    “Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien” — Édith Piaf (1960)

    No, nothing at all, no, I regret nothing,
    Neither the good done to me, nor the evil,
    I don't mind it all,
    No, nothing at all, no, I regret nothing,
    It's paid for, swept away, forgotten,
    I don't care for the past.

    With my memories, I've lit up a fire,
    My sorrows, my pleasures, I don't need anymore,
    My loves are swept away, with all their quavering,
    Swept away for ever,
    I start from scratch.

    No, nothing at all, no, I regret nothing,
    Neither the good done to me, nor the evil,
    I don't mind it all,
    No, nothing at all, no, I regret nothing,
    Since my life, since my joys, today,
    Begin with you.

    “Wololo” — Babes Wodumo (2016)

    Bongekile Simelane aka Babes Wodumo's breakout hit. Gqom is South African house music, and this sounds like a party.

    I actually don't know what language Eugene Hutz is singing here, but surely the manic energy that is Gogol Bordello belongs in this thread.

    Although this isn't his masterpiece, Through The Roof and Underground, it's still representative of the band.

    A large portion of what I listen to is non English speaking which is great apart from recalling artists names/song titles

    I could do a lot with Stereolab French lyrics, but I just love the sound of Melochord 75, though the words are just sound painting about a burning bush :D

    “Monza (Rauf Und Runter)” — Harmonia (1975)

    The lyrics kick in around the 2:00 mark, vocals buried in the mix.

    Haha! Müssen zusammen singen, ja! Immer wieder rauf und runter
    Einmal drauf und einmal drunter
    Immer wieder hin und her
    Kreuz und quer, mal leicht, mal schwer Immer wieder rauf und runter
    Einmal drauf und einmal drunter
    Immer wieder hin und her
    Kreuz und quer, mal leicht, mal schwer

    Haha! Have to sing together, yes, up and down again and again
    Once on top and once under
    Always back and forth
    Criss-cross, sometimes easy, sometimes difficult, always up and down
    Once on top and once under
    Always back and forth
    Criss-cross, sometimes easy, sometimes difficult

    French band, Magma, has an entire catalog of releases dating from the early 70's to the present, all sung in Kobian, an invented language.



    Not to mention, their ridiculous level of musicianship.
