"The Way I Want to Touch You" was also recorded in Spanish and was on a Japanese C&T compilation.

As was mentioned in the other thread, their whole "Love Will Keep Us Together" album was recorded in Spanish. The Spanish version of "The Good Songs" from that album was the B-side of "Muskrat Love."

Although this topic is of no personal interest, in the past, I have known of
one or two fellow music enthusiasts who were totally into this "foreign
versions" topic. And they would introduce/re-introduce it at the slightest
opportunity. To each his own!   :)

Over the years, however, a few of them had either come in to the station,
or I'd found a stock copy on the cheap somewhere. Not knowing
how/where to file them, I started a small "Foreign versions of hits" area.
There are currently only seven 45s in this category, although I know that
the Young Rascals did release "Groovin' (Spanish Version)" and "Groovin'
(Italian Version)" as a stock 45 (Atlantic 2428) back in 1967. I don't own
that 45, but there is a scan for it on 45cat.com, and I do have both
versions on a 6-CD Rhino Handmade Rascals box set. Two of my 7 45s
have been mentioned upthread, but I'll include them here as well, for their
full 45 details. Here they are, from oldest to newest:

-Captain & Tennille-"Como Yo Quiero Sentirte (The Way I Want To Touch
You)" (A&M 1774) (stock copy, with a Spanish version of "Broddy Bounce"
on the flip)

-Linda Ronstadt-"Lago Azul (Blue Bayou)" (Asylum 45464) (promo copy;
same version on both sides)

-Kenny Rogers-"Lady" (Spanish Version produced by Jose Silva) (Liberty
1397) (stock copy, with the English version of "Sweet Music Man" on the
flip)

-Police-"De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da (Spanish Version)"/"De Do Do Do, De
Da Da Da (Japanese Version)" (A&M 25000-S) (this is definitely a U.S.
specialty 45 release. It is surely a promo 45, although there's no specific
mention of "Promotional copy-Not for sale" anywhere on it. The above
stock # is totally unique, and in no way resembles its A&M 2275 stock 45
#. It also has the UK/Euro small 45 size hole, clearly as an homage to its
contents.)

-Toni Basil-"Mickey (Spanish Version)" (Chrysalis 2665) (stock copy, with
the English Version of "Thief On The Loose" on the flip)

-Suzanne Vega-"Luka (Version en Espanol)"/"Luka (English Version)" (A&M
35084) (stock copy - not sure how I acquired it - my guess is that my 45
copy was pressed in the U.S., and was then sold in Central/South America,
etc., because the label says A y M Discos, not A&M Records.) So I'm not
100% sure if it "officially" qualifies here.

-Brenda K. Starr-"Yo Creo En Ti (I Still Believe)" (MCA 17525) (promo copy;
same version on both sides)

I imagine that free online sites like 45cat, Discogs, etc. would be a virtual
treasure trove for discovering many other such songs. I believe 45cat is
even based out of the UK, but they are very good at separating 45
releases by individual country. Happy hunting!

I just remembered that Smokey Robinson's "Being With You" was recorded in Spanish (Aqui Con Tigo) so I added it to my list above. (There was also a Spanglish version).

What's great about the umbrella of "Top 40 Music on Compact Disc" is that this topic isn't even off-topic for this board. Some people talk about the single versions, the album versions, the neither versions, the extended versions, the alternate versions, the vinyl versions, the failed attempts (and noble attempts!) at re-creating a single edit, the remixes, the re-recordings, the foreign-language versions ... it's all TOP 40 music on CD! And all these "other" versions are "stay-aways" for some and "exactly what I've been looking for" for others. :)

My goodness, this thread could actually grow to massive
size if we go back to the 60's, I know a lot of Motown
hits were also record in Spanish but I don't have a list.
But i'll throw in these few that are in my "Foreign"
folder:

Barbra Streisand - Evergreen (Love Theme From 'A Star Is
Born') (In Spanish) '77
Beach Boys - Kokomo (Spanish Version) '88
Carpenters - Canta ('Sing' in Spanish) '73
Gloria Gaynor - Yo Vivire (I Will Survive) '78
Boyz II Men - Al Final Del Camino (End Of The Road)

I think the Boyz did quite a few of their hits in
Spanish, not sure which ones though.

Edited to add:

Mary Hopkin - Que Tiempo Tan Feliz ('Those Were the Days'
in Spanish)

Both on CD... Evergreen was on the CD single or "I Finally Found Someone," and I'm quite sure the Spanish version of "Those Were the Days" was a bonus track on the remaster of her first album.

My copy of this is a U.S. promo copy (the
image I linked to was the Japanese side) with the large
hole, same odd catalog #. I don't remember where I got
it.

I just found that I have "Canta/Sing" on the Carpenters 4 CD boxed set, but it's Spanglish. Is there an all Spanish version of this? on vinyl or CD?

I just checked my "Postcard" CD and saw the last 2 tracks are:

Those Were the Days (Quelli Erano Giorni)
Those Were the Days (En Aquellos Dias)

I assume "En Aquellos Dias" is the Spanish version, but what is "Quelli Erano Giorni"? Italian? French?

Actually, I just saw that Mark wrote the Spanish version of "Those Were the Days" is called "Que Tiempo Tan Feliz" - which isn't on "Postcard" at all. Does anyone know if that's on CD?

And so what language is "En Aquellos Dias?" I assume that translates to something like "In Those Days" - and "En" and "Dias" are spanish words as far as I know. But I guess this isn't it!

Here are a couple more:
David Lee Roth - "That's Life" "Asi Es La Vida".
B side of promo single of the English version (not sure
what was on the B side of stock copies, think it was
something else).

Jets - "Alla Tu" (Make It Real Both sides of
promo single S45-17526, which seems to be a non-standard
MCA catalog #. It's a U.S. pressing though.

Culture Club - The War Song - the b-side to the 45 was La Cancion de Guerra.
Right Said Fred - I'm Too Sexy - the b-side was a Spanish version as well

The stock copy for David Lee Roth's "That's Life" featured Bump And Grind on the B-side. The previous single, "Goin' Crazy" featured a spanish language version "Loco del Color". Then again, DLR did put out a spanish language version of his Eat 'em And Smile album, which would mean that there's also a Spanish language version of Yankee Rose.

Gordon, "En Aquellos Dias" is an alternate title for "Que Tiempo Tan Feliz." They're both the same recording.

"Que Tiempo Tan Feliz" is on the 'Apple Records Extras' set included within the 17-disc various artists The Apple Records Box Set, which also has the Italian, German and French versions of the song. (Yes, a 17-CD Apple Records box that still manages to omit Mary's top-40 hit "Temma Harbour.")

There's also apparently a Japanese import Post Card CD with the "En Aquellos Dias" title and the Italian version as bonus tracks:

Ouch. That song's bad enough in English. :)

The wikipedia article on the Eat 'Em And Smile album has information on the Spanish-language version, which was called Sonrisa Salvaje. The Spanish-language version of "Yankee Rose" did not have a translated title, but was simply called "Yankee Rose". Every other song on the album had its title translated or otherwise rendered into a Spanish equivalent.

I have a 2-track promo CD for the Scorpions "Wind Of Change" (CDP 448), which has the "Edit" (3:42) as track 1 and "Spanish Version" (5:10) as track 2. They also recorded a version in Russian, but I don't believe it was ever issued in the US.

The Russian version of "Wind Of Change" caught my eye (and $) while browsing through the current 45s bins. It's on "side 2" of the "Send Me An Angel" U.S. stock 45.
