Agnaldo Timóteo - Furacão
Fafá De Belem - Meu Homem
Its a tracklist of my mixtape ( http://www.mixcloud.com/marvinsan/from-mravin-with-love/ ) so lot of things missing ;-)
I made the topic because I hope we can collect more unusual materials to make more mixtapes :-)
Within Temptation rocks! Thx!
yes, the Pulp version is great, but I put one Pulp track in the mix, so I choosen the Saint Etienne version of TND.
Personally I would have thought an original title track would be of more interest than a cover and I don't really think anyone would complain if a band featured twice but each to his own.
You can find it on her album "Anthems".
To which we can add three french songs. Yes, the french versions of some Bond movies also feature french versions of the the songs. So here's the french version of "From Russia With Love", sung by Bob Asklöf.
"Les Yeux de l'Amour" (The Look of Love", from CR '67) sung by Mireille Matthieu :
And the french version of "Do You Know How Christmas Trees Are Grown", sung by Isabelle Aubret :
Not used in the french version of YOLT, but covered in French by Lucky Blondo :
And I'm sure there's more.
So did I. Great thread! Entertaining and informative.
Totally agree, I think Beyond the Ice is a marvelous song - I would remove "You Only Live Twice" from the lyrics, but other than that it works perfectly with the title sequence.
Why not? :)
Then a sample quiz: From Which movie, which scene is this? ;)
@luds (resident mod metal-master) would like.
