On Youtube, there’s a user who translated a very famous 9-minute song from Legião Urbana, called Faroeste Caboclo (Mestizo Western). Not only did he translate it, but he ‘sung’ it in English. On the video’s side notes, he admits he’s a bad singer but it’s still a good attempt at an interesting idea. My Brazilian friends and I got together the other week and tried to sing the original ourselves (sans a lyrical reference) but after the halfway mark, no one could really remember the rest of the lyrics. Below, I’ll post the translated video and the original.
Here’s the lyrics in Portuguese.
