Subject: RE: What exactly does 'Sing in your own voice' mean?
Muppett, what would you think of someone singing "Day-O" using the traditional Jamaican dialect and lyrics. "Mi come ya fi wuk, mi no come ya fi igle". I think the traditional version is best done in dialect, while the popular Belafonte/Burgie version can be done in any accent possible.
