There are a few songs that were so famous that they were translated into different languages and then sung in those languages. One song that comes to mind is “itsy bitsy teenie weenie yellow polka-dot bikini”. You can find that song in many languages, even including languages such as Finnish and Serbian.
What do you do when you don’t have a professional translator to translate your song? Google translate, of course. Malinda Kathleen Reese is a young performer who created a YouTube series called “Google Translate Sings”. She sends lyrics of English songs through several layers of google translate and back into English and then sings the song with those lyrics. The results are very entertaining.
For example, “I came in like a wrecking ball”, came back as “I like the ball in the sink”, “let it go” turned into “give up”, and “hello, it’s me”, resulted in “hail, it’s me”.
Her channel deserves a visit from anybody who wants to be entertained.
