!!Examples
* After The Fire's "Der Kommissar" is an English cover of a German song originally done by Falco. The title is the only part that wasn't translated.
** Not quite. "Alles klar, Herr Kommisar?"
* ChristinaAguilera, Music/NellyFurtado and {{Shakira}} have all recorded several of their singles both in English and in Spanish (and in Shakira's case, Portuguese).
* Music/TheBeatles did a German cover of "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" called "Komm, gib mir deine Hand," and "She Loves You" as "Sie liebt dich."
* The Music/DavidBowie song [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHT8Kb9VjAQ Heroes]] has been done in three languages, the original English, in German as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXV3rlr9G04 Helden]] and in French as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=van4ZFqTM3k Heros]].
** Supposedly, Bowie was to record a version of the song in Spanish, but [[WhatCouldHaveBeen to no avail]].
* "Gloria" by Laura Branigan was originally an Italian song by Umberto Tozzi. Branigan's version isn't a straight cover, though; her Gloria is a lonely, promiscuous loser and the lyrics are sarcastic and contemptuous, while Tozzi's original gushes almost worshipfully about a woman who is waaaaay out of his league.
** Tozzi also did his own English version.
* Stef Carse, a now-forgotten French-Canadian country singer, had a one-hit wonder in the early 1990s with a French rendition of "Achy Breaky Heart" called "Achy Breaky Dance", dance moves included.
* Petula Clark translated many of her English-language songs into French, Spanish and Italian. "Downtown" is the best known of those.
** On a related note, "I Will Follow Him" is an English cover of Petula Clark's French-language song "Chariot".
* PhilCollins translated and sang his own songs in French.
* Every [[DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney]] song is translated into around 20 languages each, and some languages have more than one translation, to accomodate local variation.
%%** Anime/SailorMoon as well.
* TheElectricBananaBand wrote an English version of their song 'Banankontakt', lampshading it in a recorded conversation on the record: "We can't sing in Swedish anymore, because that's dorky."
* [[HelloProject Morning Musume's]] "Summer Night Town" originally done in Japanese but was then covered by label mates Coconuts Musume in translated into English, barring part of the chorus.
** Kusumi Koharu's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBuDK88vWWw Koi kana]]" becomes Laura Vanamo's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMjZHGBJgmk Se tunne]]". That's not Japanese, that's Finnish!
* "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" (aka "Wemaweh" and "In the Jungle") was originally a Zulu pop song from South Africa -- which caused some controversy (years later), as the original writer and performers got no credit for the cover and never saw a cent from it.
** The english version was later adapted in French - under the title "The Lion ''Died'' Tonight". Okay...
* The original "Macarena" was in Spanish. A popular version exists with English lyrics.
** Also "Aserejé" ("The Ketchup Song"), by Spanish group LasKetchup, which also has a Brazilian Portuguese cover.
* Nena's "99 Red Balloons" is an English-language cover of her own German-language song "99 Luftballons". The English release 45 had the German version as the BSide.
** Oddly, Goldfinger's cover, while the rest of the song is in English, uses the German fourth verse, which was translated into the English third verse, so one verse ends up being [[SecondVerseCurse completely left out]]. The fourth verse contains a line about jet pilots comparing themselves to Captain Kirk, so it could have been left out for copyright reasons.
* Argentinean bands Renacer and Tren Loco, who have covered several English-language songs in Spanish, such as ''[[Music/JudasPriest Metal Gods]]'', ''[[Music/{{Megadeth}} Reckoning Day]]'' and ''[[Music/{{Helloween}} March of Time]]'' in the case of the former, and ''[[Music/JudasPriest The Hellion/Electric Eye]]'' and ''[[Music/{{Megadeth}} Train of Consequences]]'' in the case of the latter.
* "Solo Le Pido a Dios" by Argentinean singer Leon Gieco has been translated by several other artists and groups into different languages, as well.
* Music/ThePolice did a cover version of "De Do Do Do De Da Da Da" in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCbCA5z1Ygs Japanese]].
** There's also a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uPZY-F_zac Spanish]] version.
* "Ue wo muite arukou" ("Sukiyaki") by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtXQ31F1A-k Kyu Sakamoto]] (1963) was covered in translation by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xqFkUNqBwMw A Taste of Honey]] (1981).
** The original Japanese song was about a man wandering while looking up and whistling so that his tears wouldn't fall. The lyrics of A Taste of Honey's English cover had little to do with the original's.
* Music/TakeThat recorded a Spanish version of "Love Ain't Here Anymore".
* The Spanish band Loquillo y los Trogloditas translated Johnny Cash's "The Man in Black" as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rcvc8BYtqMc El Hombre de Negro]]".
* Tino Casal's "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tZVHCkrmjo Eloise]]".
* Siniestro Total's cover of "Sweet Home Alabama", "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t02dFZI7nw4 Miña Terra Galega]]" (although this one has lyrics about the Galician diaspora).
* Music/ScottWalker sang several of Jacques Brel's songs in English in the 60s, though he didn't translate them himself. Perhaps the most famous is "Amsterdam," also covered by DavidBowie.
** "Seasons In The Sun" by Terry Jacks, a #1 US hit in 1974, has the same tune and is ''very'' loosely lyrically related to Jacques Brel's "Le moribond."
** All the songs in the JukeboxMusical ''Jacques Brel is Alive and Well and Living in Paris'' are English translations of Brel's songs.
* La Frontera's cover of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIWteKhM5uw Viva Las Vegas]]" and Mikel Erentxun remaking The Smiths' "There is a light that never goes out" as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TeTFYnKKxzw Esta luz nunca se apagará]]".
* Laibach have translated some songs into German: "Sympathy for the Devil" as "Sympathy for the Devil (Dem Teufel Zugeneigt)", {{Queen}}'s "One Vision" as "Geburt einer Nation" and Opus' "Life is Life" as "Leben Heißt Leben".
* The Four Seasons' "December 1963 (Oh What A Night)" was covered in French by Claude François as "Cette année-là". Subverted in that, although it is a foreign language cover, it's not a translation; the lyrics of François' version are about his own life.
** This was very common in the 60s, especially with Claude François. For example, François's successful "Belles Belles Belles" was an adaptation of "Girls Girls Girls (are made to love)" by the Everly Brothers where most of the lyrics were changed to keep the "ringing" sound of the original. And Sinatra's "My Way" is "Comme d'habitude" with different lyrics.
** François' cover of The Four Tops' "Reach Out (I'll Be There)," [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Mv5-3T6JC4 J'attendrai]], is a relatively faithful translation.
* Music/BenFolds has covered his own "Song for the Dumped" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJT3cj-NWk0 in Japanese]]. Naturally, the swearing remains in GratuitousEnglish.
* {{Funimation}} does this quite frequently on their anime dubs. ''FruitsBasket'', ''Manga/DetectiveConan'' and ''OuranHighSchoolHostClub'', for just three examples, all include English-dubbed covers of their original themes.
** A little different, but one dubbed episode of TheMelancholyofHaruhiSuzumiya has WendeeLee singing the English version of the song played at the talent show
* Lvzbel did a whole CoverVersion Album which contained only Music/JudasPriest's spanish-translated covers. It backfired.
* Music/SixpenceNoneTheRicher covered their hit "Kiss Me" in Japanese.
* For Music/ThePixies cover of "Evil Hearted You", originally by Graham Gouldman but CoveredUp by TheYardbirds, Black Francis translated the lyrics into Spanish. Slightly less clumsy than his regular Spanish, too.
* Music/AvrilLavigne covered her song "Girlfriend" with the chorus translated to several other languages.
* Cantonese anime dubs will occasionally come with a dubbed version of the opening theme. Examples include ''{{Doraemon}}'', ''Manga/RanmaOneHalf'', ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'' and ''SaiunkokuMonogatari''.
** In some cases, like their treatment of ''Manga/FullmetalAlchemist'''s ''Melissa'', it's more like they [[TheCoverChangesTheMeaning rewrote the lyrics]].
* German singer Juliane Werding has done a number of translated covers, including TheBand's ''The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down'' (''Am Tag, als Conny Kramer starb''), MikeOldfield's ''Moonlight Shadow'' (''Nacht voll Schatten''), and NikKershaw's ''Wouldn’t It Be Good'' (''Sonne auf der Haut'')
* {{Abba}} recorded Spanish versions of many of their songs, including a Spanish album called "Gracias Por La Musica" and a few songs that replaced album tracks in Spanish territories. Later a compilation album, ''Oro'', was produced to collect them (15 in total). Their native tongue is Swedish but only their earliest singles have Swedish versions.
** They also recorded a BlindIdiotTranslation of "Waterloo" in French which is honestly SoBadItsGood. "Waterloo! Je vais constituer ta prisonnière!"
** They also recorded "Ring Ring", "Another Town, Another Train" and "Waterloo" in German. The reason they did this was that they were aiming for a European market who wouldn't necessarily speak English. As it happened, German fans already liked the English versions and they didn't bother doing any more after that.
*** They wrote Ring Ring deliberately around this trope - the title phrase is onomatopoeic and so can be used no matter what language the song is translated into.
* O-Zone's "Dragostea Din Tei" has been covered in so many different languages, the translations have [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragostea_din_tei#Remixes.2C_parodies_and_other_cover_versions their own section on the song's Wikipedia entry]].
** There are ''multiple'' covers of it in (at least) English, French, Dutch, and Hebrew.
** There are two Japanese covers, and ''three'' Chinese covers.
* SongsToWearPantsTo did an English cover of the UtadaHikaru song "Blue".
* One JonathanCoulton fan translated "Re: Your Brains" into the French "Re: Vos Cervaux". Jonathan has since recorded it and performed it live.
* FranzFerdinand did a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zGcLODDy9Uw German cover]] of their own song "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-SFac3GpxY&feature=related Tell Her Tonight]]," featuring drummer Paul Thomson (who usually doesn't sing at all) on lead.
* 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.
* "Hot Limit" ("[[{{Mondegreen}} We Drink Ritalin]]") by John Desire is a GratuitousEnglish Eurobeat cover of a Japanese song by TM Revolution. Conversely, many Eurobeat songs have been covered in Japanese.

** There's also a version in Arabic. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Ca5N55QzGs Haifa Wehbe - Adra Ayeesh]]
* A tradition for popular French songs of the 60s. Gilbert Becaud's "Nathalie" was translated in German, Spanish... Johnny Hallyday's "Que je t'aime" even got a Japanese version.
* Germany has an impressive track record for recording German versions of popular pop songs - be they British or French. Basically all French hits of the 60s were translated and either sung by their original artist or by German cover artists. A good number of covers of American songs were produced in East Germany, because the government saw it as the only way to prevent young East Germans from coming into contact with subversive, capitalist songs.
* Freestyle artist Angelina did an English cover of Paradisio's "Bailando", as well as in the original Spanish.
* "Around the World" (2000) by German group ATC is an English cover of "Pesenka" (1998) by Russian group Ruki Vverkh.
* According to [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Just_a_Gigolo_%28song%29 the other Wiki]], "Just a Gigolo" was originally an Austrian song about a hussar reduced to making a living as a hired dancer, "a poetic vision of the social collapse" of Austria after World War I. The English translation removed the historical context and social commentary. It wasn't originally done by David Lee Roth either, but that's [[CoveredUp another trope]].
* ''Film/{{Wanted}}'' is directed by a Russian. Thus the end credits song "The Little Things", by DannyElfman, received [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K047goQGGq4 a Russian version]], also sung by Elfman.
* "The Girl From Ipanema" (also a case of TheCoverChangesTheMeaning).
* A few ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' series have English versions of the theme songs. Most are sung by different people, usually ones who speak English, but the ''Series/SeijuuSentaiGingaman'' English version was sung by Masato Shimon, the same as the Japanese version.
* Music/TracyChapman's "Fast Car" has been covered in Japanese by Hitomi Yaida. While the translation is mostly faithful to the original, all references to the singer having a job/being the breadwinner while her husband is unemployed have been taken out -- which slight alteration [[TheCoverChangesTheMeaning completely changes it]] from a song about a girl from a poor neighborhood who dreams of better things but ends up singlehandedly supporting a good-for-nothing husband to a song about a girl who dreams of an exciting life but ends up playing housewife to a salaryman husband who's never home.
* France Gall's EurovisionSongContest winning "Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son" was self-covered in Japanese as "Yume Miru Chanson Ningyou".
** Likewise her "Laisse tomber les filles" ("Leave the girls alone") found new life as April March's "Chick Habit" in ''Film/ButImACheerleader'' and more famously, ''Film/{{Grindhouse}}:'' ''Film/DeathProof''.
* Sandie Shaw did the same with "Marionetas en la cuerda", her spanish version of "Puppet on a string"
* Mike Oldfield's much-covered "Moonlight Shadow" has a Spanish cover by Marcela Morelo and a Russian one by Miriada.
* Chilean singer Salomé Anjarí's entire body of work is Spanish-language covers of Japanese pop songs.
* There is an album of various Japanese artists covering SimonAndGarfunkel, mostly in Japanese.
** There is also [[http://www.discogs.com/Various-Outlandos-DAmericas-Tributo-A-Police-A-Tribute-To-The-Police/release/1253254 one by Latin American artists]] covering ThePolice in Spanish.
* On a tribute album to Japanese singer Mariya Takeuchi, Lisa Loeb covered one of her songs in English.
* Russian pop duo Music/{{TATu}} have many of their songs in both English and Russian, including "Ya Soshla S Uma"/"All The Things She Said", "Nas Ne Dagoniat"/"Not Gonna Get Us", and "Lyudi Invalidy"/"Dangerous and Moving". However, some of their songs have only ever had English lyrics. Do not attempt to search for the "original Russian" versions of "He Loves Me Not" or "All About Us": they don't exist.
* Japanese duo PuffyAmiYumi have done many English versions of their songs to put on the North American releases of their albums, including "Asia no Junshin"/"True Asia", "Akai Buranko"/"Red Swing", and "Violet"/"Love So Pure". They have also done Japanese version of their English theme songs for Creator/CartoonNetwork shows, such as ''WesternAnimation/TeenTitans'' (the Japanese version was played as the opening of the particularly silly episodes) and their own ''HiHiPuffyAmiYumi''.
* This is extremely common in Korean pop music.

It takes quite a few liberties with the original, but keeps the overall theme intact. They also translated their self-titled song as "Genghis Khan".
** French musician Georgie Dann did a spanish version of "Moskau" called "Moscú", and spanish singer Iván covered "Dschingis Khan" as "Sin amor".
** Japanese pop group Berryz Kobo, meanwhile, has done a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pL2WMSk_sEw Japanese cover]] of Dschinghis Khan's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4WdFede2wE self-titled song]].
