Hard as it is to believe, there have only ever been 11 foreign language UK number ones in the history of the charts. Sadly some great hits such as Joe le Taxi, La Isla Bonita and Dragostea Din Tei by O-Zone miss out on being included on the list as they never reached the number one spot. How many from the list can you name before scrolling downwards?
