I don't think "Father" is a German word.

100&! But it's "Willkommen im Dschungel", "Tanzen mit meinem Vater" und "Ich und Herr Jones".

It's just "Mr. Jones." Me and Mrs Jones is a completely different song.

Mir means "me" and ich means "I" - so Me and Mr Jones should be "Mir und Herr Jones"

I think Frau Clark would be happy with this score. 15/20 and I haven't taken German since 2nd and 3rd year in college almost 40 years ago.

"Schwarze Magie Frau" is the literal translation of "Black Magic Woman" as in word for word but no one would say that and I'm pretty sure it isn't meant that way. "Magic" not only translates to the noun "Magie" but also to the feature "magisch". So "Schwarze magische Frau" would be more fitting and correct.

The translation is false but yours as well. Schwarze magische Frau means she's black and magic. Unfortunately my German isn't good enough to correct it.

There are only clumsy ways to say that in German. "Schwarzmagische Frau" would be most accurate if a little odd. To be fair, it's odd in English already. You wouldn't say "Math Teaching Woman" either.

Please accept 'I am on a boat', 'Dancing on the street' and maybe 'Let the good times go', since that would be the literal translation.

Ring of Fire would be better translated as Feuerring.

Accept "Lovely Day" for Schöner Tag? It translates the same, and it is a Bill Withers song.

"Freitags" is given as a plural; therefore shouldn't Fridays be correct?,

Shouldnt it be Tanz mit meinem Vater, otherwise the translation would be dancing with my father. And surely there is a better translation for let the good times roll. You could actually use rollen instead of gehen. If you want to use another word because it is to similar I suggest wirbeln/würfeln but that means more spin (which you do when you roll) I guess whirl

btw I never heard of like 3/4 of these songs. While with the other song quizes I have heard of 3/4 (the titles atleast most of the time never actually knew any of the songs, but that is different)

i liked how sometimes i got the translation by knowing the song while in other cases i just translated word by word and got a song i never heard, very well balanced quiz! All in all i got all but 2 and i almost thought i could speak german lol, no way
