Ásgeir Trausti - Heimförin (Icelandic folk music)

Kaizers Orchestra - Knekker Deg Til Sist (Norwegian alt-rock)

https://www.youtube.com/v/mYrPdOCM4y0

Chetes - Camino a Casa (apparently this counts as pop rock in Mexico)

https://www.youtube.com/v/qNuuzGN9WRg

I guess songs in English by non-native speaking artists are fine too.

That's a fairly amateurish translation in my opinion (when he says "geil", the translator puts it as "horny", which is literally correct but the word is more commonly used to just mean "cool") but I trust it enough to agree with you that these are some very surprising lyrics.

>which is literally correct but
I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that's deliberate. Given the context.

Translating lyrics is basically impossible, because you're never going to capture the literal meaning, the allusion and the prosody. The double meaning of "geil" is integral in this context, so you're damned either way.

Some of those translation choices are objectively bad - I would never choose "Still, a good session requires some 'multi-taskers', no?" when the more literal "What's a good game without a multi-player mode?" conveys the intent far more closely. With that said, the translation is certainly close enough to convey the general gist, i.e. that Alligatoah is a total fuccboi. I mean, look at the state of him. No amount of ironic detachment can conceal the fact that he phones up his exes in tears at 4am after a long fruitless coke wank.

It's a real stretch to translate it any differently, especially as the German for "Multiplayer" is "Multiplayer".

Here's what I assume is a protest song by Maria Burmaka, the Ukrainian singer who recently said "Fuck Putin" to Dan Walker live on BBC Breakfast and is now the queen of my heart:


But maybe you're sick of politics. In that case, here is 1980s novelty hit Atmosphere by Russ Abbot, performed in Estonian:


And here's a Greenlandic rock song I've just discovered:

It's actually a song about summer coming to an end from the perspective of Southern Italy but it's been stuck in my head since the weather has turned.

German punk band Die Toten Hosen enjoyed a niche following in many countries including Britain, in the days before MTV Europe became localised.

The song "Hier Kommt Alex" is a homage to the character Alex in A Clockwork Orange, and the lyrics essentially recount most of the book's premise.

I saw them live in Germany once at Rock am Ring, in its day one of Europe's biggest open-air festivals. They really rocked. A teutonic take on the Sex Pistols, coupled with some broad-appeal guitar rock.

I don't know why this wimpy ballad is so catchy, but I can't get it out of my head:


According to Wikipedia, this video is Penelope Cruz's acting debut. The single was released a few weeks before her 15th birthday, so she is presumably 14 here.

I remember this from my foreign upbringing. I remember this song came out around the same time and I really liked it, although listening to it now, maybe it's not as good as I remember:

Femme Like U is by far one of the best R&B songs of that entire decade, and yet, it's virtually unknown outside the Francosphere. I remember being in France some time around 2005 one time and they were playing it up and down there.

Sexy Albanian lady Gjyste Vulaj sounds like lots of others, but I am going to post this song because she appears to be signed to a record label called Labia, and she sings this song in front of a building which says LABIA on it:
