    I can also sing in other languages, too.

    Les soucis n'ont pas de chance.
    La musique commence. (clap, clap)
    Ca c'set Fraggle Rock.

    Sing und schwing das Bein, (clap, clap)
    Lass die Sorgen Sorgen sein.

    Let's see...French, German, Pig Latin???:confused:That's notta real language to translate! You're gonna make pigs upset everywhere!:mad:
    Anyway, one of my younger sisters is good at French, and boy, was she surprised when I showed her that French title version I found from the Season 2 Bonus Disc!:)My older sister also got to hear samples of other languages when I showed that 1987 behind-the-scenes video I have on Season 1 Bonus Disc.
    Hey, can anyone translate the theme in Japanese? I don't think it's happened before, but it would be interesting to hear it in Japanese. Put it in Romanization, s'il vous plait. I can read the kana, but the kanji, not so much.:smirk:

    I don't know how to put Japanese lyrics because of its letters but the English translation to the Japanese version is this.

    Dance. (clap, clap)
    Forget the bad stuff.
    In a big voice, (clap, clap)
    Let's Sing.

    Forget about dancing.
    We're always bright and happy.
    Gobo, Mokey, Wembley, Boober, RED!

    Then, there's the repeat of the first verse at the end followed by Boober saying "Begin" twice.

    Does that help?

    :wisdom: Romanization means to put in the pronunciations in the form of Romantic letters, like ai (love), neko (cat), kagi (key), hi-i (yes), and Pikachu (no wait, that's the same in English!) I understand if you can't read the kana and kanji. It's hard for me to read kanji, having hundreds and hundreds of them...
    Hey guys! Whose knows other ways to translate the theme song, like Swedish?:hungry:It'll be awesome for this thread!
    :sing:All around the world...:sing:

    Hey guys! I have All Around the World song already. It is as good as any other Fraggle Rock song I have. It's true that we lost our Jerrys and Miss Diane, but still I LOVE Fraggle Rock. The song is saved in my email account thank goodness.

    Truth be told! Without Fraggle Rock, there would be no Gobo, Wembley, Red, Mokey, or Boober.

    Hey everyone! Here's the good and the bad news. The good news is well I am listening to the first season songs. The bad news? I cannot watch the second episode called "Wembley & The Gorgs. What gives? This is also the episodes where Wembley becomes really smart. Ugh! It's not fair!

    Reminder - Don't forget that April 22nd is Earth Day.

    Because I don't have the Fraggle Rcok - the Complete First Season DVD set and Youtube videos are down. What gives? :sigh:

    Thanks for the notice, Knatchman! I had no idea 'bout that! :coy:
    By the way, I'm still waiting for other translations for the theme song. I'd read Spanish, French, German, please no Pig Latin again! :mad: Right now, I'm anticipating Japanese (Romanji), Russian, and Swedish. :hungry: C'mon, bring on the party!!

    Whew! I finally found the episode, "The Preachification of Convincing John" on YouTube. I thought it took forever, but I didn't give up.

    Note that this episode aired on Feb. 14th of 83.

    Enjoy and have a happy "Vallen Tine" day.

    Wow! Great job on finding that one. I thought that episode wouldn't be up on Youtube anymore. It's a great thing that user didn't use the words "Fraggle Rock" as tags.

    That episode, on a Valumtimes Day??I had no idea! :flirt:
    Plus, there's that one tune I first heard from the Fraggle Storybook. Good times, good times...:dreamy:
    Hey! Since this is a thread for the 30th anniversary, I gotta good question: What's your favorite FR moment that you'll still remember even 30 years from now? Don't hurry on your answer, take your time...:sleep:
  18. Twisted Tails

    Twisted Tails Well-Known Member

    Whoa! That's a good question, but I don't want to answer quickly and respond by making it snappy. My favorite would have to be the funeral dirge song also known as "Dixie Wailin'" I will say that Phil and Dennis have wrote some pretty good songs for the Fraggles.

    Again, I LOVE Boober's reactions. Also, great vocal performance from Jerry's Gobo. Yeah, that right, I am talking about Gobo, er... sort of, but love love this song.
