This site, ดึงดูดใจ (Deung-Dut-Jai), was created because I have stacks and stacks of translations of Thai lyrics all over my computer and all over my desk that I’ve done for various reasons. And it’s just been a pain because they’re so unorganized and everywhere. So I decided to try organizing them all in a little archive blog thing to make things easier on myself, then figured I might as well make it available for everyone else too, along with including some reviews and recommendations, so. Here we are. 🙂
I’m using my free time to translate Thai lyrics and news for free. Please don’t take my translations and try to make money off of them. I am simply trying to promote the enjoyment of Thai music internationally. I post only translations to song lyrics here. All videos are hosted on Youtube. I don’t condone or contribute to illegal downloading or piracy of any kind and encourage everyone to legally obtain any music they might enjoy.
Unless in rare cases otherwise stated, all English translations and transliteration of Thai lyrics into English letters on this blog were done by ME, Tahmnong and copyrighted to me. You are welcome to use them for personal, non-commercial uses, but please don’t try to take credit for them. Please link back here or credit this site or Tahmnong. While the lyrics themselves are obviously copyrighted and credited to the original composers and artists, it isn’t always easy to translate them into a completely different language and keep the same emotion and style that exists in the original Thai, so please be respectful of my work and my willingness to share. ขอบคุณค่ะ Thanks 🙂
If you are a record label or artist and are interested in using my translations for captioning your official Youtube videos or in other commercial use, I would be thrilled to help you out. Just please contact me and let me know what you’re planning to use my translations for and give all credits to Deungdutjai.
I also include the original Thai lyrics line-by-line, since I know a lot of my readers use this as a resource to learning the Thai language.
While I have gotten permission from many major labels and individual indie artists to post their lyrics, there are some who I haven’t been able to contact, thus, if you are the owner/creator of any of the lyrics I have posted and do not wish for me to share them here, please contact me at the E-mail address below and I would be more than happy to remove them.
ถ้าคุณเป็นศิลปินหรือบริษัทที่ฉันติดต่อไม่ได้เพื่อจะขออนุญาตจะโพสเนื้อเพลง และคุณไม่อยากให้เนื้อเพลงของคุณจะโพสที่ไซต์นี้ ช่วยติดต่อกันที่อีเมลแล้วฉันจะรีบไปลบทันทีค่ะ
