Top 10 Songs with Titles Containing the Umlauts Ä, Ö, Ë, Ü or Ÿ

Metal_Treasure
This list is inspired by Martin_Canine's list Top Ten Music Artists Containing the Umlauts Ä, Ö and Ü.

Umlauts just look interesting - many bands have put umlauts into their names to look cool or different: Motörhead, Mötley Crüe, Queensrÿche.

Songs with umlauts are usually in German or Finnish because these languages use umlauts.

The Top Ten

1 The Curse of Fëanor - Blind Guardian

This is one of the best songs on their iconic album Nightfall in Middle-Earth, based on J. R. R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion.
Yes, this is the correct spelling of the name Fëanor - a character from Tolkien's The Silmarillion. But everyone spells his name Feanor in the song title because most people have no umlauts.
Tolkien high-fantasy works were partly influenced by the Finnish national epic, the Kalevala, and there are Finnish-like names in his books, including words with umlauts.
So this is a song in English with a word in the song title that's probably influenced by Finnish. And the song is by a German band. That's very international. - Metal_Treasure

2 Des Sängers Fluch - Equilibrium

A song in German. Equilibrium are very good. - Metal_Treasure

3 Missä miehet ratsastaa - Teräsbetoni

The bandname also has an umlaut - the letter ä (they are a Finnish metal band).
This metal song was at the semi-finals of the Eurovision Song Contest in 2008. Metal songs are rare at Eurovision. - Metal_Treasure

As the band name suggests (Finn troll) they are from Finland and sing folk metal in Finnish - Metal_Treasure
