Today I received the WWRY Spanish Cast cd.
I must say, it really sounds great, or at least very good.
Powerful voices (Killer Queen could do a bit better) and the music is great.
I do not speak Spanish, so I don't know in what manner the lyrics are translated, but the songs do sound just wonderful and everything seems to fit.
I do not recall any Spanish members of this board having told us their experiences about the lyrics e.g.
Any comments from that part of the world?

At the moment I'm not promising anything. (Being an official release and all that)
btw my site is offline until the beginning of June. (thanks to 35GB of download in 10 days...)

Without the intention of making someone feel bad of not having the track - the studio version of Solo Por Ti sounds really great. (Has some nice orchestral arrangements in it.)

Though I've read here that not everyone is waiting for Spanish versions of the Queen songs, I just think that the songs do sound great in this language.

I haven't brought the CD but I downloaded "Solo por ti" through Emule, so you could be able to do the same.

I have to say, that this song has being covered (by Queen itself) awesomely, it's very touching and the translation is very accurate and sweet.

I must say, great job there.



An interview? Oh, don't be ridiculous...

I just got the CD-Single in the mail yesterday.

Although I won't be learning anymore Espanol until the next school year (starting just before Sept.), I find this to be a very sweet song and can understand a few little words so far (but I don't understand what the title means!)

I'm partial to Japanese translations myself. "I'm Going Slightly Mad" is "Overture To Insanity". How great is that?

are you intelligent enough to find some more words to explain to us why you hate it?

Easy, fellows ;)

Well, I don't like the version either. It does not have enough guitar, drums or other recognisable Queen sound to it. It Looks like a very good vocal demo, waiting for Brian and Roger to come to the studio and do their part.

Anyhow, it may grow on me, who knows?

Cheers,

"are you intelligent enough to find some more words to explain to us why you hate it?"

Why the cheap shot, Rien? I've never levelled a insult in your direction.

Well, for your benefit, since apparently attacking the musical in any way, shape, or form is not allowed, here's why I think the song was utter crap and waste of my time: This sounds like any other Queen cover done by a foreign act. It is uninspired and routine, albeit translated so as to convey an "exotic" feel. Is that enough to warrant my hatred? No. What makes this so particular bad is that QP decide to waste their time (and fans' money) on the a rather pedestrian version of a rather pedestrian song. NOBY is far from Queen's best to begin with (unless you want to be blinded by the sentiment of the song); this new "song" is an insult. How is this any different than any other Queen cover I've heard from no-name artists in the last 10 years? It has the QP seal of approval on it.

I can only hope, Rien, that that response was "intelligent" enough for you. But basically, you can shorten that paragraph into two words: Hate It.

ok... I just read the word "intelligence" in your post, so I used that.
I find it just too easy to say only "hate it" when one gives ones opinion. Of course you don't have to like this song. You sure can make up your own mind. And I agree that (in almost all cases) there is nothing better than the original.

I did not want to offend you. I should have put my remark in some other way, because perhaps my reply was too easy also.

For some people I have made the track Solo Por Ti available. There's a short and a long version. I believe they did put some extra work in it, because of the orchestral arrangements. Again, I prefer the original version.
The Spanish cast cd is overall really good I think. The songs do sound okay to me in most cases.

No offense taken, just seemed out of character and I was taken aback a bit.

Well, about this new Solo Por Ti (No One But You) version, it´s really great, believe me, I am from Mexico, so my native language is Spanish, and I can tell you that the translation of the song is the same, it has the same meaning and pratically the same words but in different languages, just a little bit different ones to fit the metric of the song....

The version sounds incredible, the orchestration arrangment is great, I think they wouldn´t do something similar to the WWRY London cast, but just something different; the voice of Eva Maria Cortes is very sweet, I am sorry that most of you don´t understant all the words in Spanish, but the song touched me in a very special way, for being a Queen song, and for being in Spanish, so, Rein, I hope you can upload some versions of this WWRY Madrid cast for us, it would be really nice to have those versions of Queen songs in Spanish, at least for me.

Adios Amigos !!!



Only the good die young !!!
