Five More Non-English Song Titles

Viva Las Vegas-  Elvis

As you might expect, from the movie Viva Las Vegas

Krankenhaus-  New Bad Things

The title in German means “Hospital”.  From legitimately one of my favorite albums of all time.  And one of my prized vinyl possessions.

Jardin du Luxembourg-  Ghost of a Saber Tooth Tiger

Sean Lennon and his wife writing songs and singing together, yes please!

Los Angeles- X

This kind of feels like cheating, but the name does mean “The Angels”.  I do love the vocal interplay between John Doe and Excine Cervenka.  The title song from, in my opinion, their best album.

El Condor Pasa (If I Could)-  Simon and Garfunkel

Apparently, a Peruvian folk song re-written by Art Garfunkel and included on the Bridge Over Troubled Water album.  The song title means “The Condor Passes” in Spanish.
