100 songs that are versions of others

Created by Alma Barroca on 21 Şub 2018 | Alma Barroca tarafından en son 10 Mar 2018 tarihinde düzenlendi

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.

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

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

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

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

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

Alma Barroca    Cum, 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    Cum, 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    Cmt, 24/02/2018 - 21:19

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

Alma Barroca    Salı, 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.
