Missing songs...

Hello, I've noticed that in the MBN's music section there are missing two (or more) important in-game songs:

- The Sendell's song sung by the school children;
- The ferrymen song;

Could any kind soul with LBA 2 installed and the proper software provide us with the .wav files of these?

Words come in all sizes. But even if they fit you,
they might not come at appropriate times.

Oh yeah, I remember again!

Quote:
" It's Sendell which makes her nest,
In the heart of the planet.
Sendell does her magic well,
But it might make your head swell.
Sendell is the prettiest, FunFrock is a dirty beast."
I just had to be reminded of LOVE, you know. My memory is associative.
It's not like I would like to listen to this song, it just a hymn. But for completioning, if someone has the right tools, maybe someone can list them.

The other one follows as this:
Quote:
Ferryman, if you please,
Take me across the raging seas.
For a few gems I'll take your boat,
I cannot swim, I cannot float.

I used to wander around singing that song as a kid. I was cool.

It's Sendell which makes her nest
In the heart of the planet
Sendell does her magic well
But it might make your head swell
Sendell is the prettiest
Funfrock is a dirty beast.


All from memory!

Hmmm, you might have just copied it from the game quotes. Can't prove

Or did I -? Now I'm confused...

I might have. I don't have to prove myself to you, though. I can't prove that I used to wander around singing it as a child, either, so you probably don't believe that as well.

Oh no, I was just kidding. I was the one who copied from game quotes. Sometimes I don't even trust my own memory.

I believe ya, I used to play the LBA tune on my keyboard at school between lessons, I even took extra, private music classe hours just to be able to practice it secretly. Does singing a song sound stupid? Nope

Good. Because I actually spent half my childhood singing random songs. Actually, to be honest, I still do that now! It's probably more stupid as an adult...

The last two lines always bothered me. Sendell is pretty...Funfrock is a beast? Really? That's the best they could come up with? I often wondered if it was lost in localization but then figured they went to the trouble of finding English words that fit and rhymed, so it can't be by accident.

I wonder how the translation matches up. I've not actually played the game in French, it might be interesting to see how everything matches. The ferryman's song makes a lot of sense in English. I wonder if it's very different in the original French.

Yep!

As a side request to the kind soul who'd help us all providing these files, I'd like them in french and possibily other languages too.

I've always wondered how these songs were meant to sound like in the original versions. This fascinates me more than the background songs now, because it's sung, and each language will have different "singers", so it'll be very interesting... can't wait to get ahold of these files.

Double-J : I believe the last line does say "Sendell is the prettiest", according to a french version I heard once, it says "Sendell c'est plus jolie" confirming it was a direct translation (in this part at least).

Mia : I did sing LBA's songs as a child, too... and hummed for the instrumental ones. Until this subject was brought up in this thread, I had thought this was just the natural thing to do for all players who truly loved the game!

I think the "Funfrock is a dirty beast" was added to almost rhyme with the English translation, because in French that would be something like "FunFrock est une bête sale" and sale doesn't rhyme with jolie.

"C'est Sendell qui a son nid
Dans le coeur de la planète,
Sendell fait de la magie,
ça peut faire tourner la tête,
Sendell est la plus jolie,
Funfrock était une.. sale bête !"

The two dots are a pause in the song here. "sale bête" litterally means dirty beast, but is commonly used in french for an animal that annoys you. It's not as hard as I feel it is in english. It can be used in front of parents (for an animal of course).

The rhyme scheme clearly works a lot better in that version. Nid, magie, jolie and planète, tête and bête. Interesting that the tense changes (I think), and Sendell IS the prettiest but Funfrock WAS a dirty beast.

Overall, the English translation doesn't seem to have been changed much. Now I really want to hear the French version!

Maybe we should do something about the songs on the Twinsuniverse as well...

Who'd vote for adding an article on the Twinsuniverse (KBT for short) about the songs, with a download link?
Maybe I should finish it first

I'm sorry, for me it's the fact that the KBT takes up all of my time here at home, and I don't have any of those tools.
