For French language singers, I'd say Rachid Taha, Edith Piaf, or Yelle.
For Portuguese language singers, I like Bondo De Role and CSS.

I can't think of any songs in any of any songs in any other languages I really enjoy as of now.

I'm not as diverse with the music but that's because I dislike trying to argue different languages in my house with very conservative people.

ANYWHO.

Japanese: Buiikikaesu - Maximum the Hormone
Korean: Password 486 - Younha In my defense, she is cute.
German: Augen Auf - Oomph!

Dude, wrong link but knucks for MtH.

I can't pick single favorite songs of any language, but W.O.R.L.D. by The Mad Capsule Markets is most definitely one of my favorite Japanese songs ever. (And that video. UNF.)
Louisiana Bob by MtH is another. (Dunno why it's so hard to find a version that's not an AMV or a cover, though.)

THIS THREAD, IT WAS MADE FOR ME.

I love languages, I love music, so it's like a match made in heaven.

Just some random, common languages off the top of my head:
Spanish: Asi Es La Vida
French: J'y Crois Encore
Italian: Quelli Che Non Hanno Eta
German: Tie between Krieger and Unsterblich
Ukranian: Wild Energy
Chinese: Xin Wo
Japanese: Tie between SONGS and Beginner yeah i like both momusu and akb don't judge yo
Korean: Sun Flower
I feel like there's another song I'm majorly missing but I can't think of it fml

Spoiler! :
I could also go through every single country that's participated in Eurovision and pick my favourite song that they've ever submitted, but I'll not do that because that's a losery thing to do.

I don't know too many foreign language songs but here's what I know

German: Tie between Moskau - Dschinghis Kahn and Die Roboter - Kraftwerk

Japanese: Anything Goes - Maki Ohguro Yeah, I know it's the theme song to a children's show. but I don't really care.

And that's all I really know for languages that I know multiple songs in.
And now everything tastes like buttermilk.

BAHAHAHHAHAA me too >.>

I never listen to lyrics in music - I don't absorb them at all unless I read them, cuz my head is too distracted by melodies.

Unfortunately, I'm at work, so I'll sift through my music library later and post the favourites.

Oh god this is gonna be hard, I cant even pick my favorite artists in English >.<
I don't know many European artists unfortunately something I definitely need to work on.
German: Rammstein - Mutter or E Nomine - Das Tier in Mir or Subway to sally - Wenn Engel hassen
Is it okay if the songs are from movies translated into the language?
Spanish:Santana Feat. Jorge Moreno - Satelite (Spanish Version)
Russian: SLOT - 2 wars
Polish: Ewa Farna - Cicho
Indian:Aaja nachle - Sunidhi Chauhan
These are really hard to pick through
Japanese: songs by Nightmare and One ok rock
Chinese: Kan guo lai - Richie ren
Korean: beast - fiction or Shinee - Lucifer

Japanese: I guess I'll go for Buck-Tick's Sasayaki right now...or maybe Penicillin's Love Dragoon.
Korean: Knife by The Trax
Russian: Definitely Слот - Пули
French: Hands down, no doubt in my mind "La Seine"
And I don't know much Thai music, but I kind of liked MaleRose's Rose.

Those and English are the main languages I listen to. I've listened to others from time to time, but not enough to have favorites.

Well, this is what I can think of off the top of my head without searching through my mp3:
Greek - Galana by Elena Paparizou
Hungarian - Zakatol a Szivem by Josh and Jutta
Arabic - Helwa Ya Baladi by Dalida
Mandarin - Touch your Heart by Fahrenheit
Danish - Danmark man Dark by Nephew
Swedish - Vi ar dom Tuffaste bt Nanne Gronvall
German - Mitternacht or Vater Unser by E Nomine
Korean - Huh by 4Minute or almost all of DBSK's Korean version songs
Russian - Europe Skies by Alexander Rybak [Even though I like the english version better, I still love it]
~And, just because I'm half polish~ Pechowy Jak Polak by Big Cyc

...and Mein Herz Brennt by Rammstein ft. Tatu is also sickly epic, and the chinese song Fearless by Jay Chou feels pretty epic.
And I can't actually seem to think of a Japanese one I particularily like... o.o I might find one later.

*EDIT: Prisoner of Love by Utada Hikaru is an okay Japanese song, now that I think about it.
Tell Everybody I'm on my way, whatever way that may be - be it the road less traveled by, or the road I'll someday die. As long as I'm amused, I'll be fine.
