Found the following two while browsing.
I do not understand a word of either of the songs, but find them extremely beautiful.
On our forum there are people from many different ethnical/cultural backgrounds. Could anyone tell me what the Ukranian text of the first and the Latvian lyrics of the second mean in English (or any other major Western language)?
(1):
(2):

Many thanks in advance .

Edit:
the song became famous through (translations in various languages of) the Russian version ("A million scarlet roses). Unfortunately those lyrics are completely different from the Latvian original .

One of my favorites. Ever. Written by some of the best writers/musicians to grace the earth during most of our lifetimes thus far.

The original ballad, Tombe la Neige from 1963 sung by the Sicilian(-born) Salvatore Adamo who at age 3 together with his mum followed his dad (who had gone to work in a coal mine) to French-speaking Belgium.
A cover (in Japanese) by the most famous singer the Chinese-speaking world ever has known: Teresa Teng. Apparently the uploader is Russian.
The Japanese version by a native Japanese singer, Fuyumi Sakamoto. She generally sings specific traditional Japanese songs (enka).

Oh man, that brings some memories back.

In 1991 I was stationed on USS Ranger, had just made 2nd class petty officer, and my Chief liked me, and another guy. He said "There's a week long training in NAS Millington I want you to take. Also, spend the weekend in Memphis and have a good time."

So TAD to Millington we go. And NAS Millington suuuuuuuuuuuuuks. Mostly a training base so guys fresh out of boot camp are getting marched all over the place, and drywater sailor instructors hassling us for wearing our command caps and threatening to send us to the fleet, which often made us laugh out loud. So, being a couple of fleet E5s, we did what we sailors have done for centuries. We proceeded to drink. A lot. And when hammered and trying to find your way back to the barracks, there is no better song to sing at the top of your lungs than "Three Little Birds." And so we did that, too. I've run into Bill (the guy I was with) a couple of times since then, and we still have a giggle about it.

Memphis was grand, though.

I liked their version of "Shout" and the Genesis song they did, but was not such a fan of this one. Not really sure why.

Aaaaahhh! Memories of when I was a kid. *shiver*

He inspired a band that covers pop songs and modern classics in Metal to call themselves "James Blast Orchestra", which he sued them for, since then they are known as "J.B.O.". As they usually change the lyrics to German I picked something in English.


The even covered Weird Al Yankovic in German. And are often compared to him.


I got some more they did in (really bad) English but those have somewhat explicit lyrics, so... yeah, if somebody of the metalheads here wants that stuff, give me a hint via PM.

I had normal volume on and ventured into listening ... nearly got a stroke :inpain:.
I can understand why JL sued them people...

Right now I am listening to "James Last in Holland 1".
As someone wrote on YouTube, "whatever country he went, James Last got the essence of their music." For hours now I have been listening to this compilation - especially to "Spiegelbeeld" at 33:52-35:06. It was originally sung by the cute Amsterdam-girl Willeke Alberti. The James Last interpretation is marvelous... A childhood memory, one of those one fondly carries with him/her forever:

I thought it was warning enough to say they do Metal covers, I'm sorry. Be glad, this is only about medium on the scale of metal/rock hardness.

The lawsuit was only about the name, not the music. "Blast" was understood as meaning "flatulence" instead of the musical style element in Metal music. They settled on using the abbreviation and censoring (literally writing "censored" over the word) the full name of the band.

Listening right now:

Listening right now:

Due to a tragedy that occured during my childhood (eons ago), I missed out on all the music produced from the 1960s (when it happened, i.e. my brother's death) until 2010, when my mum died. Although she was extremely musikalisch, she could not bear the rhythm and liveliness of pop & co. Imagine growing up in a home without a radio...
Therefore I am practically completely ignorant in (modern) music matters and it takes time to (even partially) fill the gap.
You know a funny thing? I always thought James Last was Dutch (I knew someone who had that surname). But he actually came from Bremen/Bremerhaven, where relatives of mine were living.
Still listening non-stop to JL's rendering (I would call it heavenly) of "Spiegelbeeld, vertel eens even.." This is the original it draws on:
