I came across Christmas Is All Around by Billy Mack / Bill Nighy. It is listed as a cover of Love is all around. Although the lyrics are slightly different it is neither to be found under adaptions nor is a lyricist besides Reg Presley named.
In a first research I couldn't find the person who changed the lyrics and the only information I have so far is from back of cover, where it is said, that it is a limited adaption of the original. Then two people are named who were responsible for production and engeneering, but no lyricist. Sure, it could be possible that Reg Presley himself altered the lyrics or maybe the change is too little to count as an adaption of the song. But I'm a little indifferent if one of these possibilities is true. So I would like to ask for other opinions on this. Shouldn't it be found in the adaption column of "Love is all around" because it is not love anymore but christmas in the center of the song and so it becomes a different song? Or am I overthinking what an adaption is?
And - whether in your opinion it is an adaption or just a cover - shouldn't there be an entry like "unknown" or "not yet identified" for the lyricist because there are different lyrics used?
I hope this is the right way and place to ask for help / bring up a topic like this...
