About Foreign Language Music

Updated: 17 September 2013

Foreign Language Music is a blog designed to share language and culture through the lyrics of world music.  The English translations are often direct and not necessarily artistic with the intention that learners focus on the original lyrics as much as possible.

  1. Hello!

    I’m not sure if you accept song recommendations but if you do, is it possible for you to translate the following Japanese song to English and/or Spanish?
    醒めない夢 by 井上陽水
    (Samenai Yume by Inoue Yosui)

    I find it very difficult to get the nuance of the lyrics when they’re changed to other languages. Very interested to know how you’d do it.

    Thank you!
