More Beatles and whole lot of 'Schlager music' Mar 8, 2018

STS: Da kummt di Sunn (Austrian German version of The Beatles' Here comes the sun):
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVtVOMcJhjE

The German version of "I want to hold your hand" by the Beatles ("Komm gib mir deine Hand", sung by the Beatles) was already mentioned earlier. They also recorded "She loves you" in German ("Sie liebt dich").

Cliff Richard recorded a whole host of his songs in German in the 60s: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cliff_Richard_discography#German_language

I always found it quite interesting how multilingual the pop music scene was back in the 50s/60s/70s, when many European stars adapted their songs for each market and often recorded versions of their hits not only in their native language but also in English, German, Italian, Spanish, French and other languages. Julio Iglesias recorded songs in more than a dozen languages. Charles Aznavour sung in eight languages. French singer Mireille Mathieu was well-known in Germany for her chansons sung in German; she has recorded songs in 11 languages. Greek singer Demis Roussos sang in Greek, English, German, French. Nana Mouskouri sang in at least ten languages, including Dutch, Hebrew, Welsh, Mandarin and Corsican. And the list goes on.

To my surprise, while I was getting the links of the Oriental songs for my earlier posts, the search engine prompted me with the links to Finnish and Russian. Since my knowledge of these languages is next to nothing, I'll let the experts of these languages to confirm whether they are the right stuff as promoted in Youtube.

Enjoy!

You are welcome to produce an Ukrainian adaptation of a Bob Dylan song of your choice. The following are already taken, so please choose a different one:

Catalan: Mr. Tambourine Man / El senyor del tambor
Czech: Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues / Skoro Blues
Danish: It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue / Baby Blue
Dutch: The Times They Are A-Changin’ / Er komen andere tijden
Finnish: Changing of the Guards / Vahdinvaihto
French: When the Ships Comes In / Le jour ou le bateau viendra
Friulian: Blind Willie McTell / El vuarp tal cjanton
German: Blowin’ in the Wind / Die Antwort weiss ganz allein der Wind
Greek: Like a Rolling Stone / 'Οπως η σκιά μου
Hebrew: A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall / גשם כבד עומד ליפול
Italian: Desolation Row / Via della povertà
Norwegian: Forever Young / Evig ung
Polish: Love Minus Zero – No Limits / Miłość bez zera
Portuguese: To Ramona / Para Ramona
Russian: Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 / Женщины дождливого дня, #12 и 35
Spanish: It Ain’t Me Babe / Ese no soy yo
Swedish: Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right / Låt Mej Va De E Bra

Anybody who wishes to pick a song by Bob Dylan (except those listed above) and adapt it to their native language (except those listed above), let me know. You will be remunerated and credited. Please note that I said "adapt" and not "translate". The difference should be obvious.
