AND A BOX OF SCORPIDOS
« on: February 05, 2007, 12:20:10 AM »

Well, you've read the notes, you were as confused by the notes as I was, and now it is time for you to post until the cows come home - they're very interested in the Scorpido, which they think is a new dish at Taco Bell.

I can tell this cd has been checked out a few times... It is like it is skipping from time to tiem in the song.

One of my favorite foreign songs (and I'll admit that I mainly like it because it was recorded by The Manhattan Transfer with Laurel MassÚ doing the solo) is Je Voulais (Te Dire Que Je T'Attends).

Don't you hate it when that happens??  When you turn it in, you should give it to someone and tell them.  At the Service Center where I work, we have a CD grinder that (if a CD has scratches that are NOT on the label side) can grind down the underside enough to take out most scratches.  It cost a lot of money, but it totally works.

I have the original French concept recording and the Paris cast recording of Les MisÚrables.  I love that show.

All the Abba songs were written in English first; even "Waterloo" which had to be changed to Swedish to be eliglible for Sweden's initial competition for the Eurovision Song Festival.

I love many of Jacques Brel's songs, both in French and in their English translations.  All of Legrand's Umbrellas score and Rochefort score.  If You Go Away, in any language.  Volare.  Autumn Leaves.  Our Language Of Love (and many others from Irma La Douce by Marguerite Monnot).

I have a three different recordings of Jacque Brel Is Alive and Living In Paris and the soundtracks to both "Umbrellas" and "Rochefort."  Great stuff!

I am so glad people have mention Jaques Brel I love his song as well, but a side not he is not French, but he is from Belgium

A favorite of mine is Le Ciel est Bleu.

Too bad DR Francois doesn't post today I am sure he can give us a long list.

I also like the original French lyrics to I Dreamed a Drean from Les Miz. If you do a literally translation of the lyrics they are a lot more meaningful for the character.

Good morning, all!  To paraphrase the original German title of ALL QUIET ON THE WESTERN FRONT,Im Ohio nichts Neues; not a word on the Ohio front.  I shall proceed with my usual day - today I'm mixing JOSEPH & THE DREAMCOAT for Rodgers & Hammerstein - keeping my cellphone near me.

DearReaderLaura, the only DR to send me fudge is my beloved Nursie, but if we were ever to have a fudge judging contest, I couldn't vote till I had sampled yours . . .

I love Brel's songs, and while he's Belgian, his songs are mainly in French as opposed to Flemish - I love the collision of the two languages in "Marieke," and I like the way the best songs in JACQUES BREL IS ALIVE AND WELL . . . capture the sounds of the original language in English, often when the translation itself is very free.  The biggest insult to the French original is Rod McKuen's "Seasons in the Sun," which alters both the tne of the original as well as its musical structure.

I also like Volare, Love Is Blue, and Never on Sunday.

There was this foreign language song

Feliz navidad
Feliz navidad
Feliz navidad
Prospero ao y felicidad

which I believe was translated to:

Phylicia Rashad
Phylicia Rashad
Phylicia Rashad
She played de mom, Bill Cosby played de dad

Or at least it did on the local bar scene :)

The only foreign language I know reasonably fluently is Hebrew, so my favorite songs for the TOD are the Hebrew songs

"Next Year" ("Bashana Haba-a") by Hedva and David (not to be confused with Harry and David),
 
and the previously discussed "Hallelujah," for which Steve and Eydie did a ubiquitous American version many years ago.

It's not a foreign language song but it's a foreign language phrase.
