Music Quiz Question: Hit Songs Not in English

The sporadic Ithaca Blog quiz question surfaces again this week. It's driven by a piece of trivia arisen at Small World Music today that is too good to pass up, or not pass along. Namely:

The U.S. "Billboard" top 40 record charts have included songs in a language other than English only three times: one in Spanish, one in French, and one in German. Name one and we include you for a randomly-selected prize of a $10 gift certificate to Small World Music. Be the first to name all three, and you win a g.c. with no drawing: all yours, champ. (As of Thursday 12 June, no one has accomplished this wondrous feat.)

We'll take entries all this week and pick winners on Friday. You can e-mail your answer to SWM at
