M10. Which songs have Spanish versions?

Mariah has recorded Spanish versions of one song from Music Box, Daydream and
Butterfly, in keeping with the native language of her father. These songs
(except Mi Todo, the Spanish version of My All) have appeared on singles and
albums in some countries- refer to the "Mariah Carey Singles Discography"
document [Ahmed] for information (see M2b(iii) to find where to get this).

In addition, each song from the Mariah Carey album has a Spanish version
registered in the BMI music database, however these have not been released,
and recordings may not even exist.

[Spanish recordings]

ENGLISH Title           SPANISH Title
Hero                    Heroe
Open Arms               El Amor Que Sone
My All                  Mi Todo
