Okay, here's the deal. I'll post the lyrics of a pop song that has been through a free translation site, like http://www.freetranslation.com/ to translate it into a foreign language, and then back into English. Your challenge is to guess which pop song it is. Whoever guesses right then gets to post the song of their choice. Sound easy? It's not.

Here's an example:
The words fly was the endless rain that wants in a glass of cardboard
They slip while they pass They they slip away through the
Pools of the grief waves universe of
the happiness they carry complete my open mind that
Possesses and me caressing


Lost? That was "Across the Universe" by the Beatles.

Words are flying out like
endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me


That's right, translated into Spanish and back "paper cup" becomes "glass of cardboard"

__________________________

Anyway, begin!

Starting off easy, this went from English to German back to English:

The devil is descended after Georgia, sought he a soul, to steal. It was in a clamp 'co it was way behind: it was willin' to make a business. As it on this young man sawin bumped has' into a fiddle and playin' it be named. And the devil jumped on a Hickoryholzstumpf and said: "boy tell let me you what: "I you have not knew bet it, but I am a fiddle player also. "and if you would provide yourself to take a challenge, will make I a bet with you. "now you play pay a pretty good fiddle, boy, but the devil home: "I a fiddle of the gold against your soul have 'Co I think that I am better, than you. ". The boy said: "the Johnny my by the name of and it might a sin be," however I your bet, your gonna regretting will take, ever was is 'co I best, that. ".

this looked fun so ithought id try it :twisted:
English-dutch-english

Ah, ah, We come from the country of the ice and snow, Van midnight sunbathe where the hot sources blow. The hammer of the gods will ride at our ships to new countries, to fight the horde, that sings and crying: Walhalla, I come!

On we wipe with the threshing of roeispaan, will Our only target the western bank be.

Ah, ah, We come from the country of the ice and snow, Van midnight sunbathe where the hot sources blow. How soft your fields so green, can whisper tell of coagulated blood, Van how we the tides of war calmed. We are your opperheren.

On we wipe with the threshing of roeispaan, will Our only target the western bank be.

As now you will better stoppers and rebuild all your ruins, Before peaces and trust can the day despite of all your losses win.

that pretty sight you is does not move
That skies incredible are ' round involved we today to the night
that you is all the stars to sleep and I am the satellites
I all leave rest of those fears in its imagination
that I only want if to find here in our constellation
that seen you pretty is does not move
(it makes make...)
does not leave all the dark clouds to
rain below of the horizon of its mind
cannot you see there is nothing but the skies of the blue one and is you, oh
does not move
what a pretty sight you is
not dumb


Not quite the version Deref sang at our wedding... ;) (english->portuguese->english)

The second verse kinda makes the title obvious.

Quote:
It said that it loved me, it would not go ever Now I find I sit here it was it of actual initiative something I said or done That it his bags make packs it and
it ran it Would Be able it is another one found dissolves It a happy house

The can of mister she tells me where my love went is a Japanese boy I have awakened the morning and my love was gone Japanese boy of my Ohh Oh I am lacking
Japanese my boy

A great song! Japanese Boy, by Akena (it's featured in GTA: Vice City, by the way)

Now here's mine:
English to Russian, and back... and pretty damn close...
Words as violence
Will break silence
Arrive suffering crash in
In my small world
Painful to me
Get directly through me
You understand a jamb
About my little girl

All I ever wanted
All I ever required
Is here in my weapon
Words are very unnecessary
They can harm only

Oathes speak
To be broken
Feelings are intensive
Words are trivial
Pleasures remain
So does a pain
Words are senseless
And easily forgotten

All I ever wanted
All I ever required
Is here in my weapon
Words are very unnecessary
They can harm only

Enjoy silence

Well, this thread may be dead, but it looked like fun. This one's fittingly English to Russian to English, and fairly obvious.

Sometimes you - more provided dead
There is a weapon in your hand, and it specifies your head
Ю thinks, that you are mad, too changeable
Kick in chairs and forcing down tables
At restaurant in city of West End
Name police, around there is a madman
Reduction of underground to dived бруску
In city of West End

In city of West End, the world of deadlock
Boys of East End and the girl of West End
In city of West End, the world of deadlock
Boys of East End and the girl of West End
Girls of West End

It is too much shadows, whispering to voices
Persons on the emblems, too many elections
If, when, why, what?
How much you have reached?
You have received it, you receive it if how it is frequent?
And which you choose, firm or an easy way?
(You require what quantity?)

In city of West End, the world of deadlock
Boys of East End and the girl of West End
In city of West End, the world of deadlock
Boys of East End and the girl of West End
Girls of West End
Girls of West End

(You require what quantity?)

In city of West End, the world of deadlock
Boys of East End and the girl of West End
Oooh city of West End, the world of deadlock
Boys of East End, the Girl of West End
Girls of West End

You have heart of a glass or heart of a stone
Only you wait ' сезам, I receive you home
We have no future, we have no past
Here today, constructed to last
In each city, in each nation
From Lake Geneva to station of Finland
(How far you were?)

In city of West End, the world of deadlock
Boys of East End and the girl of West End
City of West End, the world of deadlock
Boys of East End, the girl of West End
Girls of West End

Girls of West End

Girls of West End
(How far you were?)

Girls
Boys of East End
And girls of West End

I did the Across The Universe thing into Russian and back and well............


Words take off
Infinite rain in a paper cup
They slide, while they pass
They escape across the Universe
Associations of waves burning pleasures
Drift full my open opinion
Possession and carssing me
