The Contenders: Page 4

61 Wory W Sakone - Spongebozz

The song is mostly in German but frequently interpolates short phrases or words from the Russian language, also the song starts and ends with a sample from a Russian language song. The song has SpongeBozz apologizing to his mother for having become a criminal, and since he is of Russian descent, he occasionally talks Russian.
You know, SpongeBozz barely tells us something about his private life, but by the way how negative he often is when rapping about the streets... he might indeed be authentic. Most thug rappers that are only playing personas would rather brag about their criminal activity. - Martin_Canine

65 C'etait Toi (You Were the One) - Billy Joel
66 Paris-Seychelles - Julien Doré

68 It is Not Because You Are - Renaud

Renaud made here a very personal mixture of English and French, with a touch of humor (and a strong french accent). - Lotuscandy

69 Homelands - Nitin Sawhney

Part in Indian (traditional vocal percussions) and part in Portuguese. I saw them live (magnificent concert), and we were invited (with my friend) to take a drink after the show. We spoke for a long time with the man who made the vocal percussions, I've rarely met someone who shines so much inner peace. - Lotuscandy
