Maybe the spanish songs are more catchy, so they tend to stay number 1 for a very long time. English songs are pretty much the same, you can actually play most pop songs on just 4 chords.

Which spanish song are you referring to btw?

Taki Taki. Shakira's songs, ect They tend to dominate the december charts on all radios. Actually I inderstand why people would love spanish songs but i don't understand the numerous english ones.
