Lyrics and songs

Postby france-eesti » 2018-09-23, 6:11

Hi there!
This morning while doing my step dance session with music I thought of something - it may be cheesy and stupid but it made me laugh so I thought, why not give it a try?
The idea's to give a word and find, in any language, a piece of lyrics or a title that contains this word.
For example:

beer

(hu) A sör és a bor a legjobb orvos
(Ska Pécs, Figyelj rám)

Embolden the word in the sentence and input a flag (of at least mention which language it is)
Give the name of the song and the band (no need to input the youtube link, except if you really love the song) :mrgreen:
Right, I'll start:

baby

(fr) Comme, comme, bébé comme la vie, passe vite avant qu'on ait compris.
(France Gall, bébé comme la vie)

tree
(fr) Native - (en) Fluentish - (pt) Fluentish when I was younger - (ro) & (mg) Wanderlusting (hu) My current addiction - crazy about it! (nagy függő vagyok!)

This might be lazy and obvious but I can't resist

Joe le taxi
Y va pas partout
Y marche pas au soda
Son saxo jaune

To be honest, I also thought of "Joe le taxi" when I wrote "taxi" :lol:
