"99 Luftballoons" by Nena (1983/84) readily comes to mind. That one is in German, although there is one line that mentions "Captain Kirk".

Los Lobos' 1987 cover of "La Bamba", a Spanish-language song, also stands out.

"Theme from Harry's Game" by Clannad (1982), sung in Irish (Gaeilge) is a Goidelic language of the Celtic and Indo-European language family, originating in Ireland and historically spoken by the Irish people.

^ Oh yes, that one is a mix of German and English. O0

He also recorded the original version of "Der Kommissar", with mostly German lyrics. (Why didn't I think of it earlier?)
