General -> Discussion about cover songs -> Re: Got My Mojo Working - adaptation of Hand's Off?

In most cases, I, myself, am hesitant to conclude that one song is an adaptation of another without historical information augmenting musical/lyrical similarities.

I agree. Adaptations shouldn't be made lightly. Providing a comment about certain similarities is the way to go, in my opinion.

Database -> Research -> Re: "Lacrima" / "Walk With Me"

Have you seen this?

It looks like Etzel has the original. It involves a choir, but do they sing the words by RM Siegel? or is it just humming? It's early 1963:

Lacrima (Right Or Wrong)

Ein wunderschöner Titel von Udo Jürgens, welcher aber in der Originalversion mit dem Text von Ralph Maria Siegel nie aufgenommen wurde.

Im Jahre 1963 brachte Siegel jedoch eine Instrumentalversion mit Startrompeter Roy Etzel auf den Markt.

2 Jahre später ging das Stück an Frankie Randall, welcher damit in den USA eine Single unter dem Titel "Right Or Wrong" einspielte.

Den Text dazu schrieb Ben Raleigh.

Database -> Research -> Re: Original of a German adaptation

My humble research revealed EL ADIOS as a song by Nino Bravo in 1970/71.

Writers are Fernando Arbex & Augusto Alguero.
