100 songs that are versions of others

Created by Alma Barroca on 21 फ़रवरी 2018 | आख़िरी बार 10 मार्च 2018 को Alma Barroca द्वारा संपादित

It goes like this: Artist 1 releases song A (originally in language X). Then, sometime later, Artist 2 comes, translates song A and releases it as song B (in language Y).

This is not meant to gather foreign versions of a same song released by the same artist.

In every item's description you'll find about the original song and its performer.

As it seems that I can't add more than 100 items to the current collection, you might be interested in checking the comments for songs that I couldn't add by now.

mk87    बुध, 21/02/2018 - 17:44

Mel C also recorded an English version ("Let There Be Love").

mk87    बुध, 21/02/2018 - 17:44

I had a similar idea, I wanted to make a collection of German cover versions of international hit songs, but you were faster. Regular smile

Alma Barroca    बुध, 21/02/2018 - 23:53

I can add it, but this is a version in which language of which song?

Maria Kritikou    गुरु, 22/02/2018 - 21:46

English. Nancy Sinatra and then monophonics.
Haven't you heard it?

Alma Barroca    गुरु, 22/02/2018 - 22:16

I haven't. But I just Googled for it.

With this collection I mean songs that are translations of others - it doesn't seem that this song was a translation of someone else's work... Confused smile

Hi, Swann! Sorry I forgot about those! I checked your message as soon as I was notified I received it, but I didn't add the items at that moment. As the message was read, it went to my message bin, which I forgot to remember to check. All your suggestions were added as well, thanks for them. Wink smile

Should it be translated? or it is enough to COPY the music?

Alma Barroca    शुक्र, 23/02/2018 - 22:48

Well, it's always nice to see how a song works when sung in different languages... Though several Brazilian songs from the early 90's copied even the music of the original song... I wonder how they got away with this almost blatant plagiarism Embarrassed smile

maluca    शुक्र, 23/02/2018 - 23:31

Nr. 28 is the other way round, the Spanish version is the original, the German version a cover.

@Eagles Hunter and @Sprite Limehead are any of these by chance already in our database? YT links can't be added to collections - it must be an artist, a song, a translation or a collection that are already hosted here in LT.

SaintMark    शनि, 24/02/2018 - 21:19

pretty much every song of Anki Lindqvist is a finnish cover of a famous hit.

Alma Barroca    मंगल, 27/02/2018 - 20:38

Well, I wanted to collect foreign versions of a song, but there are times where even the instrumental is identical - so, no problem.
