<div><p>It does seem a bit odd… but on the other hand, “99 Red Balloons” and “99 Luftballons” are different songs that people may wish to discuss discretely. However, the <a href="http://www.freebase.com/view/music/arrangement" rel="nofollow">Arrangement</a> type doesn’t seem appropriate when the music is exactly the same.</p>
<p>I’ve actually felt for a while that compositions with lyrics need to borrow from Written Work… this is another case in favor of that. However, it’s not just translations; consider covers (for instance, <a href="http://www.freebase.com/view/en/tori_amos" rel="nofollow">Tori Amos</a>’s <a href="http://www.freebase.com/view/m/0bb6yz3" rel="nofollow">cover</a> of “<a href="http://www.freebase.com/view/m/06gwjn" rel="nofollow">Heart of Gold</a>” changes the lyrics), or even alternate versions (the two versions of <a href="http://www.freebase.com/view/en/the_velvet_underground" rel="nofollow">the Velvet Underground</a>’s “<a href="http://www.freebase.com/view/m/0bb7n2r" rel="nofollow">New</a> <a href="http://www.freebase.com/view/m/05_68z" rel="nofollow">Age</a>”). So far, I’ve modeled these as Arrangements, and it seems to work.</p></div>
