A tough one this..I have a very popular song in my head but can't identify it. It begins with a long instrumental section, very catchy with a strong beat, followed by lyrics that are in a foreign language, possibly Spanish. It's perhaps circa year 2000. Bit of an ask, I know, but any suggestions?

The lyrics, when they eventually come, seem to be sung by two or more people, maybe one man and one woman. Definitely foreign

As you say, it's a big ask, AB isn't the best place for an answer.

They're called ear-worms & drive you crazy sometimes. Maybe you could phone a musically minded friend & hum it to them - a facility we don't have (as yet) on here. :0)

Maybe I'll take Khandro's advice and hum it to a friend, if I can find one who doesn't think I'm nuts :-)
Do you have Google Assistant on your phone? It has a feature to name a song. I found the name of a guitar tune I wanted to hear on demand by using it.
