The typical American Europop hit of the Sixties and Seventies did not need to be sung in a foreign language, although that was a touch often added; the main styles present in the music were European folk music or modern continental "Cabaret" song stylings, both of which were given a heavy pop production (ironic, since the original foreign-language songs that spawned the style were aiming for what they saw as an "American" sound).
The style was and is very romantic and dramatic, sung often with a female vocal (very few Europop instrumentals existed, and those that did were usually rearrangements of a foreign-language song). More prevalent in the earlier era, at least in America, were new hits that adopted the style for established bands, often for dramatic effect. As with easy listening music, no American styles are ever represented, even as influences, unless one counts the sometimes raucous, "hip" rhythm sections brought over from the original European pop styles of the 60s. In another ironic twist, the very hipness European countries tried to mimic became the new standard -- at least for a while -- in American pop. The rise of disco effectively killed the style; that is, until the ABBA-inspired style Eurodisco was born to replace it.
