Moon Safari - Air
The lyrics are in French, when they have any lyrics at all. Here's an English translation of 'Sexy Boy', the best track on the album:

Where are your heroes with bodies like athletes
Where are your rough shaven, well dressed idols
Sexy Boy Sexy Boy
Dollars in their eyes
Diamonds in their smiles
One day I too will be beautiful like a god
Sexy Boy Sexy Boy
Apollo, perfect x 2000, 21 years old
The ideal man, masculine charm
Sexy Boy Sexy Boy


I'm kinda glad I don't understand the song now.

Carried to Dust - Calexico
They mix English and Spanish lyrics with beautiful music that mixes traditional Mexican music with pop. Perfect for an early morning listen when you are awake but don't want to wake up.

'Informer' was a runaway hit and damn, was it catchy. But seriously, did *anyone* understand any word of it except the title itself?

Papa - Salif Keita
The track 'Tomorrow' was used to great effect in the movie 'Ali'. The only lines I understand are 'Tomorrow, see you tomorrow' but Keita's voice imparts a haunting quality to the song.

My favourite track is 'Bottle Rocket' whose lyrics I initially interpreted as 'Do you want a six inch ham?" but turned out to be a chant of '2,4,6,8,10'. Remarkably enough, all the lyrics on the album are in English but I cannot understand most (or all) anyway.

Sehnsucht - Rammstein
German heavy metal / industrial band. Their guitar riffs are a pleasure to the ears. Their lyrics are in German and I don't speak it. Here's a translation of some lyrics from 'Engel':

Angels live, they never die
Apart from us, behind the sky
They're fading souls who've turned to ice
So ashen white in paradise


Did anyone say corny?

Cheb Khaled - Cheb Khaled
'Didi' is an impossibly catchy song. Khaled is an internationally acclaimed exponent of Raï music from Algeria.
