KyraChan Go With the [Foreign] Music

The point of this challenge is to make a wallpaper based off of a song in a language you don't know. Sounds easy, right? Well, buckle up your seatbelt, because there's a lot of detailed rules to go through:

Rules:

  • The song must have lyrics (no instrumentals)
  • The song may not be in English
  • A few lines in English are okay, but the majority of the song must be in a different language
  • The song may not be in a language which you can speak (i.e. if you speak Spanish, you can't use a Spanish song)
  • You may use Japanese or Korean, but it's highly discouraged. I want a new experience, not to be linked to your favorite J-pop or K-pop group.
  • If it's from an anime and in Japanese, you may not use it
  • If it's from an anime and in a different language, you may use it (i.e. the song "Von" from the Zankyou no Terror soundtrack is acceptable)
  • If there's an English version, it's fine as long as the foreign version came first. (i.e. Laise Tomber les Filles is okay, but a German version of Let it Go isn't)
  • Link all your sources (if you can't find one of your old links, say so)
  • Keep it PG-13!
  • Limit is two wallpapers
  • Link what song you based your wallpaper off of

If you still have a question on whether something is or isn't acceptable, don't be afraid to comment. I'd rather explain beforehand than have to disqualify a wallpaper.

Brownie Points:

  • Discuss the foreign language you used. Do you like it? Would you ever learn it?
  • Look up the translation to the lyrics. Do any of the lyrics stand out to you? Why?
  • Dedicate it to someone other than me, and explain why.

Negative Brownie Points:

  • Using a Japanese or Korean song

An example can be found here.

And if you're lost and don't know where to start, here are a few of the foreign language songs I love to listen to myself:

Quebre As Correntes (Portuguese)
Моё Сердце (Russian)
Tanz Mit Mir (German)
Von den Elben (German)
Laise Tomber les Filles (French)
99 Luftballons (German)
Von (Icelandic)
