In their heyday, the Baronets, Claude François, Elvis Presley, Tino Rossi, Renée Martel and Joe Dassin covered foreign language songs. We sometimes hum them without knowing it's not the original version! What's the story behind the phenomena, and just how widespread is it?

A presentation complete with numerous audio and video clips.
