We No Speak Americano by Yolanda Be Cool and DCUP was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, July 31, 2010 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. The song samples the 1956 Neapolitan language song "Tu vuò fà l'americano" (You Want to be American) by Italian singer Renato Carosone. The tune later featured in the 1960 film It Started in Naples. This was the first song by an Australian act to top the UK singles chart for six years. The song was the first ever UK #1 single to be sung predominantly in Italian. Why Yolanda Be Cool? The name is a reference to a line in the Pulp Fiction movie, where Samuel L. Jackson's character Jules shouts "Yolanda, be cool!" to a female armed robber named Yolanda.
