Like this gal here, she takes famous Viet songs n makes English versions out of it.  Now I can understand the songs better.  Here's two samples.  Need Hmong to step up and help the rest of us to understand your poetry in music.   O0

How close is the translation to the original?

Could of fooled me.  9 out of 10 I give.   Can't believe anyone can put English lyrics into this one here.  Catchy song

Thanks.  I need English cover such that if it were to hit your radio, you might think it is an original.  Like mi noog or any other famous Hmong songs where my Viet singers can crop it into Viet lyrics n pass it as theirs.  Maybe copy right stuff but I don't hear about it in the azn scene as much.  My Viet people do give credit to the original but if made money over it, no one suing.  Our musics are to be shared.

I don't think it's going to be done.  When you do cover of song in English, it's not the same...

For example, a famous song, Ntuj no tuaj lawm (Winter is here)... can you imagine singing that in English...haha hahha...

Winter is here where are you
Can't sleep Still remember

Just doesn't sound right.. Translation is good but in English, it's not the same....

Maybe this is the reason covers are not done in English.
