100 songs that are versions of others

Δημιουργήθηκε από τον χρήστη Alma Barroca στις 21 Φεβ 2018 | Επεξεργάστηκε τελευταία φορά από το χρήστη Alma Barroca στις 15 Αυγ 2018

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    Τετ, 21/02/2018 - 23:53

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

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

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

Alma Barroca    Πέμ, 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

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

Alma Barroca    Παρ, 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

Alma Barroca    Παρ, 23/02/2018 - 22:38

Thanks for suggestions, all added Regular smile

maluca    Παρ, 23/02/2018 - 23:31

@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    Σάβ, 24/02/2018 - 21:19

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

Alma Barroca    Τρί, 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.
