Thread Name: Lyr Req: SueƱo (Bill Staines)
Subject: RE: Help Staines Song with Chorus en Espanol
I can see both sides of the argument. Frankly, I did buy the songbook because I saw that Sueno was in it. I've liked that song for years & never felt I was singing it correctly from just hearing the Spanish words. I never felt I had gotten a good translation of the Spanish, either. It was worth it, to me, to know that I would have it correctly, from the horse's mouth, so to speak. I admire Bill Staines enough that I want him to get the profit from my enjoyment of his music. At the same time, I ackowledge various reasons for sharing music. Maybe we each just need to think about why we do the things we do. For the record, I was responding to the request by the previous poster for the Spanish lyrics. Since it was just the chorus that is in Spanish, that was the part I posted.

best to all,
