There's no Spanish in there, if any of the singers is from Spain or another Spanish-speaking country, he still sings in Italian here.

Bending the rules of the thread as much as possible, to share an older song I remembered today:

Cohen's "Here it is", as performed by Trifono.
The excellent Greek lyricists Lina Nikolakopoulou is reciting an adaptation of the lyrics in Greek over the performance in English. Very rare technique but it works great here.
