Multilanguage Song

I think there was a thread here some time ago which compiled scenes from The Little Mermaid in different languages. I was surfing youtube and stumbled upon this video of a small singing sequence from the Little Mermaid in 24 (!) different languages. I think everyone should see it, as it covers all the major languages discussed here, as well as some "exotic" ones like Croatian, Bulgarian, Finnish etc, which sound just terrific!


and which is your favorite?

My favorites are Brazilian 1989, French 1989 and Croatian.

Wow. All languages sound beutiful when sung by woman with beautiful voice!

I didn't expect it. Strangely enough, Arabic was one of themost beautiful, I thought it would be the worst.

Yeah, all except Cantonese.

Are Austrian and Normal German so far apart that it's necessary to have different version?
Guest   Mon Sep 24, 2007 9:09 am GMT
Wow, Polish is very harsh sounding!
Guest   Mon Sep 24, 2007 6:03 pm GMT
Polish and Hebrew are really harsh.

Arabic sounds not like Arabic...

At first I didn't think it sounded Arabic, more like a French-Spanish mixture, but then it becomes clearer that it's Arabic. Oddly enough I found the Canadian version didn't sound very French but many other languages did resemble some French sounds.

I am the only one who feels that some languages, like Spanish, Russian, Croatian sound more, um, clear than other languages? Like the vowels are all really clear and all...
Guest   Mon Sep 24, 2007 9:30 pm GMT
Portuguese versions sound like a mix of Spanish and French.

Un jour viendra, je partirai, je partirai sans aucun regret... so beautiful and powerful! also sounds suicidal out of context.
Guest   Thu Sep 27, 2007 5:47 am GMT
Lol, after a while they all start to sound alike...

But my favorites are English, Arabic, Hungarian and Japanese.
Actually, my most favorite is English!

You know what would be totally awesome? If someone on this forum would make their version of the song in any language! I might try tomorrow, it's too late now.

Wow, I know I don't have the voice to try, but you are right, it's an awesome idea!
