New Oldies - All The Words In The World by Jimmy Clanton

People are listening to MusicMaster Oldies every day in more than eighty different countries. Today's New Oldie takes us on a little trip around the world through the language of love.

Here's All The Words In The World by Jimmy Clanton on Philips 40161 from 1963:

Let's sample a few other songs you probably already know, but maybe with lyrics you've never heard before!

Here's Turn Turn Turn by Mary Hopkin on Apple 1801 from 1968. Anyone know what language this is? Gaelic maybe?

Here's My Girl by Nancy Sit on Life 2019 from 1968. She's from Singapore, singing in Chinese. She didn't sing this as My Guy, not that there's anything wrong with that...

Here's Pemuda Pemudi Sekarang by Kelsom And Plastic Deers on Libra EP 001 from 1969. Sounds like a garage rock cover of No Time by The Guess Who, doesn't it? From Malaysia, this is probably sung in Bahasa Malaysian, but it's all Greek to me...

Here's Sad'n Var Det Ikke I Halvfemserne by Matadorerne (from Denmark) on Metronome 1656 from 1966. 1960's music in sung Dutch.

Here's Dans Le Temps by Petula Clark on Vogue LP 759 from 1965. A French version of one of my all-time favorite 1960's tunes. The French title translates to English as In Time:

Here's Schoen War Die Zeit by Brian Hyland on Philips 320 028 from 1962. You know the song as Sealed With A Kiss, but the German title translates to English as Beautiful Was The Time:

Here's some Hawaiian Love Talk by Annette Funicello on Buena Vista 384 from 1961:

Here's Ding Dong The Witch by The Fifth Estate, an international hit that these guys sang in English, Japanese, Italian, French, and German. Released on Stateside 2034 in 1967 (or Jubilee 5573 in the United States). This is the Italian version:

Here's Suki Sa Suki Sa Suki Sa by Nana Kinomi And Leo Beats on King LP 430 from 1968. It's a cover of I Love You by People sung in Japanese:

Here's Nie Wiem Sam by Polanie on Muza LP from 1967. Garage rock in Polish:

Here's Fiebre by Los Johnny Jets. These guys are from the Northeastern state of Tamaulipas in Mexico. Their first album was called Juvenil. This is a Spanish garage rock cover version of Fever from 1965:

You will hear over 1000 1960's pop songs sung in languages other than English on MusicMaster Oldies, with more being added every day. This was fun. We'll have to do it again soon!
