What are your Favorite Non-English Songs?

Doesn't have to be Metal; It can be any genre.

Well known examples:

  • Rammstein
  • Eluveitie
  • Finntroll

Making this thread because I've been listening to music in different languages lately and I want more.

An example of why I like music in other languages:

They all sound different and can make different sounds in a song that you would never hear in English

Does it have to be entirely non english?

Nope. Still sounds cool.

That one is entirely italian i believe...
This one has some english:

Don't need to be metal, but I just can't resist mentioning Finntroll...
All their stuff, OK, most their stuff is amazing...

Lacuna Coil have some Italian songs...

And then there is Ladybaby...

One of my favorite video game themes

Let me explain the following stuff. I do not listen to music with text that often. "Kraftwerk - Autobahn" has I think 17 different words in it. So...

And this one:

Something from Estonia:

Doesn't even have to be an established band honestly.

Some stuff I've found that I like:

I have enjoyed this group for a while, I suppose its pretty generic Alternative or Pop but I really like her voice.
The band is Passpied or パスピエ

Its pretty relaxing to listen to when I am stressed out.


Damn, that is chill. I like this stuff.

Can't go wrong with those.

Nightwish - Kuolema Tekee Taiteilijan, Taikatalvi
Pretty much all songs by Korpiklaani
Ghost - Infestissumam
Eluveitie - Uis Elveti, Celtos, Scorched Earth, Omnos, Ne Regv Na etc.
Ensiferum - Tumman Virran Taa, Vandraren, Pohjola
Jonne - Kuku Käki, Metsään On Iäksi Mieli
Sabaton - Ruina Imperii
Turmion Kätilöt - Jalopiina

Plus quite a few others I can't think of right now. And yes, I like metal.

and my fav one is this:

Polish thrash. No idea what's being said, but always loved the groove.

Russian thrash? yes please.

On the relaxing note...this one.

In the complete opposite direction of relaxing... pub songs, shanties, etc. I really like those.

The most epic symphonic black power folk viking metal band imho.

Also Sandra Völkl 😍

BabyMetal are cool, and I found them after listening to these guys first.
Japanese Metal. Maximum the Hormone.

Really cool change up of styles through the song.
Some of their other film clips are crazy.
