100 songs that are versions of others

Создано Alma Barroca 21 Фев 2018 | В последний раз исправлено Alma Barroca в 10 Мар 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.

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

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    пт, 23/02/2018 - 23:31

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

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