Thread Name: Translations mutilating songs
Subject: RE: Translations mutilating songs
another badly translated song not yet mentioned, but also by Charles Trenet, La Mer - what a sweet song, but 'Beyond the Sea' is again just silly trite, obviously the 'translator' wrote a different song, trying to rhyme English and French so 'La Mer' became 'Somewhere,..'
