I thought it would be nice to introduce others in the forums to the songs of the world...
Pick a song in any language (language A), and paste its youtube video/audio here!
Genre doesn't matter, be it pop, jazz, rock, techno, blues or whatever.
Thereafter, include a few lines of the song which you think are the most meaningful, or the nicest, or the best representative of the song, or your favourite lines etc, and its English translation (if language A is not already in English).
The next person will listen to that song, then translate that few lines into another language of his choice (Language B).
Thereafter, this person will pick another song of that language B and repeat.
Let me get the ball rolling...
Name: 彩虹 (caihong; Rainbow)
Singer: 周杰伦 (zhou jielun; Jay Chou)
yexu shijian shi yizhong jieyao, ye shi wo xianzai zheng fuxia de duyao.
kan bu jian ni de xiao, wo zenme shui de zhao?
ni de shengyin zheme jin, wo que bao bu dao.
Time might be an antidote, yet it is also the poison that I'm taking in right now.
How could I fall asleep if I'm unable to see your smile?
Your voice's so near, yet I'm unable to hug you.
