    Despacito !!

    Really starting to get on my nerves now with the amount of radio airtime this rubbish is getting, at least 3 times a day at work

    However got me thinking about other songs in foreign languages that have entered the UK charts, Je t'aime was probably the first, others I remember were chanson d'amour by Manhatten Transfer and Sonne by Ramstein. This one however is still my favourite -

    2015 H/cap 15.8 > 11.3 2016 H/cap 11.3 > 11.5 2017 H/cap 11.5 > ?

    Callaway FTiZ
    Benross HTX 3 wood + 3 Hybrid
    Titleist AP1 714 4-PW
    Tour Edge50*
    Benross ZipIt 56* + 60*
    Odyssey Works Versa V-Line
    Preferred ball Srixon AD333 Tour

    The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist.

    I have to admit mine was Rock Me Amadeus by Falco, in fact I enjoyed a fair few songs of his.

    Macarena - chorus is in Spanish but doesn't detract from its catchy pop silliness.

    Rammstein convinced me that German language and heavy rock are a great match. Sonne is a great track.
