This absolute riot was the first song to come into my head. *.* 'Yo Quiero Bailar' is the best song that I have ever discovered while on holiday in Spain and is one of my favourite foreign language pop songs. They were robbed in Eurovision! (but at least got justice with a top 10 in BJSC x)

*looks at extensive collection of Japanese language songs that have made up probably at least half of one's listening habits over the past year*

*then at smaller, slightly dusty Finnish language collection*

Both of these kind of accepted all comers. I don't even know.

Kalafina - To The Beginning, Itou Kanako - Hacking To The Gate, Goose House - Hikaru Nara, Girls Dead Monster - Ichiban No Takaramono seem like some of the best Japanese ones off the top of my head.

Then for like, other stuff there's NOX - Forogj, vilag!, Kaija Koo - Vapaa, and of course, any incarnation of Ievan Polkka.

I'm not going to even bother counting classical and opera because the list would be 3 miles long.

7000$ - pretty much all of their Тень Независимости album (Russian)
The Algorithm - un dernier combat (French)
Diablo Swing Orchestra - Balrog Boogie (Latin)
Diablo Swing Orchestra - D'Angelo (Italian)
Ego Fall - Inner M album (Mandarin)
Gülsen - Bangir Bangir (Turkish)
Hadise - Sampiyon (Turkish)
Juno Reactor - Navras (Sanskrit)
Keren Annn - La Biographie de Luka Philipsen album (French)
Little Tragedies - По Ночам album (Russian)
Russkaja - various songs (Russian, sometimes German with a thick Russian accent, sometimes English with a thick Russian accent)
Kara Kedi - Yesil Su (Turkish)
YUI - again (Japanese)
Camille - La Festin (French)
Zaz - Zaz album (French)
Epica - various songs (Latin/English)

There's probably more, but either they have harsher vocals so I don't even know what language they're singing in or I just can't remember.
