I think Freunderskreis has been mentioned beefore, but not this song:

Tabula rasa - Freundeskreis, Mellobag,
Mr. Gentleman

Definitely one of the all-time best songs for me in the rap department.

(2 verses in English, one in German)

First of all, I admit I have quite an eccentric (okay. bipolar.) taste in music. That being said, enjoy (:

Regina Spektor - Après moi
English, some verses in Russian and one sentence in French

Epica - The Last Crusade (A New Age Dawns Part I)
They sing in English, but often insert verses in Latin in their songs (mostly sung by the choir). Here's one of their songs, not their best, though (:

Dalida - Bambino
French and some verses in Italian (apart from the title)
Okay, sorry, I have to add that I just adore her ♥

Emilie Simon - Fools Like Us
French and English

All'inizio è la morte
Eppur Si Muove
Latin, German and English

Íon - Madre, protégenos
Same sentence in many languages (English, French, German, Italian, Portoguese and many others)

I think I'll be updating soon (:

Noa & Mira Awad - There Must Be Another Way: Hebrew, Arabic, English

Voice of Korea/Japan (supergroup) - Let's Get Together Now: Japanese, Korean, English

Charles Aznavour - For Me Formidable: French, English

Ryo Hirohashi - Lumis Eterne: Esperanto, Japanese

Various artists - Moya Zemlya: Russian, Kazakh

Wise Guys - Denglisch: a mixture of German and English

Also, the German musician Bodo Wartke performs a love song with each verse in a different language/dialect. This is what a typical performance looks like, complete with audience requests for languages. You can hear all of the verses and construct your own song using his website's love song generator.

This is one of my favorites by the Mystery of Bulgarian voices:

Gel Moma Bulgarian, Turkish

or a version of the same song by Azam Ali:


The song is sung in a traditional Bulgarian style but includes some Turkish (possibly Pomak) lyrics.

Not sure if any of these have been said, but some that come to mind are:
Liebe und Verstand by Sisters Keepers is a German and English R&B song.
I did not post the video because the quality wasn't as good.

Stirb Nicht vor Mir (Don't Die before I Do)
A Rammstein song with a mix of German and English. This link has English lyrics as well.

Vivo Per Lei
A beautiful Italian song, this version is part in German :) I like this version a lot.

Fuer Immer
This song is done mostly in German but the chorus is primarily sung in English, and I believe there is a line of Spanish that just repeats the English before it. Good song!

That's all for the moment, may post more when I have my playlist available.
