Should I start english requests for every song of erkin koray ?
i find him to be an outstanding artist and could listen to every one of his songs.
Would it be too many requests, and should i keep it lets say 3 or 7 or so at a time ?

I don't know how quick some folks can translate turkish and how many turk speakers there are...
If there's any sources where I can "harvest" existing translations i'm thankful...

yes he's the perfect artist. lyrics are short and sweet. but songs have a serene quality to it and go very deep.. I always try to find 2 or 3 good artists for each language and then concentrate on them.

this is so awesome of you all. you can as well translate into french, german or spanish, if thats less work for you, i can do the english. i always pick english cause i think almost the whole world now speaks or at least understands english. and i love to make music accessible.
