Parlez-Vous Video?

I keep wanting to put together a mix CD containing just songs where primarily English-speaking artists use foreign languages in their songs for special effects.  One of the ones I'd include in the compilation is the song "Parlez-Vous Freezepop?".  They just made a video for it, fantastique!

Other ones I'd include would be the French version of "Judas, My Heart" by Belly, "Fleur de Lys" by Juliana Hatfield, "Copernicus" by Basia (which has a bit of Polish in the chrouses), that song by Regina Spektor on her most recent album that's half-Russian, the Sixpence None the Richer song "Puedo Escribir", and even U2's "Vertigo" which does start off with some Spanish counting, if I remember correctly.
