Hey everybody, I am looking for versions of songs by famous artists, preferably from the 60s-70s, in different languages.

Anything goes.

Exile on Main St Mar 4

I used to have a double cassette of the Stones' Exile bought in Spain in the 1980s. Apart from the fact that the notes/details gave the album the title Exilio en la Gran Via, it also featured fantastic translations of the titles: No seas nuera (Stop breaking down) and my favourite Caca fugitiva (Turd on the run)

Too many Dutch examples. Two very successful ones:

Cohen mentioned he "could live" with that version.

David Bowie singing Helden Mar 4

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nb6Gbi1MpoE

David Bowie singing Helden
Not the full lyrics, but it's particularly poignant, in that Heroes is a song about lovers kissing down by the Berlin wall.

He caused a riot in East Berlin when performing this song at a festival down by the Wall in 1987.
I was there!definitely one of the absolute high points in my life. We were busy grooving in West Berlin, then we drove all night to get back to Paris. Next morning I bought a newspaper to read on the way to work, to my utter surprise the headline was "riots in Berlin"!

There's actually a video of that performance:
