When Maciej Zembaty sang Leonard Cohen in Polish

Post by Myrtone » Sun Jun 09, 2019 7:44 am

Maciej Zembaty is notable for recording almost every Cohen song in his native language. It is common for continental singers to record singing translations of hits of the English speaking world into their own languages.

This thread is about giving perspective on how Maciej's singing translations go. Those who know enough Polish ought to be able to explain.

For more information, see this page. It has the Polish song titles!

It would be interesting to see how Maciej managed to write Polish translations of these songs to the same tunes as the originals.
