Subject: RE: Translations mutilating songs
It's not just the translations. The songs apparently get toned down. The popular version of Seasons in the Sun has a verse sung to the singers girlfriend. The version done by the Kingston Trio has that verse addressed to an adulterous wife. I have a feeling that the KT's version is closer to the original, but God forbid we should be exposed to that on the radio.
