Songs in 2 languages

At this moment there's a big hit in the Netherlands, called Holiday in Spain, by the Counting Crows&Blof. It's half in Dutch and half in English, and it's great.

I was thinking about other songs in 2 languages...I thought 7 seconds by Neneh Cherry and Youssou N'Dour wasn't completely in English but I'm not sure (should know that really), any others? And do you like these kind of songs?

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

7 seconds was half in English and half in French.
Magnus's song "French Movie" is also a mix of English and French.

How about Denis by Blondie?

These kind of songs can be good, either (1) in a comical way if the singer doesn't know both languages very well, or (2) in a good way if different singers sing the different languages.

That's a really good song. When you first look at it, you feel like this is the stupidest thing ever, but on the opposite, it's a very moving and sad song. I love it. I have the lyrics if anyone wants them. Just PM me. I also have the mp3 actually

One can find the lyrics of almost any song on the net... here for instance: "Jolie Louise"

You can also listen to a sample in Windows Media or Real Audio on this site

Hey, I wasn't putting you down - I'm a show-off, that's all. It's a character-flaw, I can't help it .

And I didn't want all those innocent posters to be lured into a PM-ing session with someone like you .
