Most of those are new to me but I liked seeing Joao Gilberto in there. I am a really big fan of his and bossa nova in general. There's a Celine Dion song I like called "Porque tu m'aime encore which I think she recorded in English for one of her English language albums. I prefer the French version much better.

Ue o Muite Arukou by Kyu Sakamoto
The only Japanese song to reach #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. The song title was changed to Sukiyaki when it was released internationally. Unfortunately Kyu Sakamoto died in the crash of JAL 123.
