What are some good examples of popular English songs translated into another language?

I was watching Mulholland Drive recently and was blown away by the Spanish cover of Orbison's "Crying"
. This got me thinking; I know some artists record their own songs
in foreign language
versions, but I'd love to come across some new ones performed with different talent and/or cultural additions. Does anyone know of other English language songs translated into different languages?
(Extra points if it's more-or-less an adaptation of the English lyrics, and not just using the background tune. And EXTRA points if the cover is good).
