    Default Foreign songs in a set?

    I'm just wondering what some other DJs say about this topic. What do you guys think about putting a song in another language in a typical night club set?

    probably need to be more specific but i see a french house tag...You can play stromae @ any top40 club and usually get away with it.

    I like a lot of tech house that has spanish lyrics which i dont have a clue what they are saying.

    I personally love to hear songs in other languages. Its good to hear how the vocal tones will make a song sound totally different. and i would think as long as you can keep it running along with the mix your crowd would love it.

    People don't mind to understand or not the lyrics as long it's good
