* Quite common with the Brazilian artists - to the point some of the first rock hits were Portuguese versions of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ak-4dK0Yp4 Bobby Darin]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HSTvMl553Zo Connie Francis]]. For a few standout cases, Os Paralamas do Sucesso translated their songs into Spanish [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff once they saw a surge of popularity in neighbor Argentina]], one of the first hits of Skank (one of the artists in The Police tribute above) was a BobDylan [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EehDzJ-Foqk version]], and Nenhum de Nós' SignatureSong is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmhSbgs5MCw a version of]] Music/DavidBowie's "Starman" (a phonetic one that turns Bowie's words into WordSaladLyrics).

* Blumchen's "Ich bin Wieder Hier", although not a translation, uses the tune of Rozalla's "Everybody's Free". Conversely, she recorded English versions of two of her own albums under the alias Blossom.
