Subject: RE: Translations mutilating songs
Thanks for many fine examples of the good kind and of the bad kind. A good translation of a song is an art and it takes an artist to do it.
I think I'll post within the next weeks the German version of 'Just a gigolo' (and its verbatim translation) as one bad example.
