El deporte, la música y los cambios - A friend of mine from England was planning his December vacation with his wife and was talking about taking a short trip somewhere nearby to France or Germany.
He had talked about it so excitedly that I expected him to have everything booked the next time we spoke.
As it turns out, he got a big promotion at work and a rather significant pay raise. So instead of staying within Europe, he’s now doing a two-week trip in the Caribbean! Vaya, ¡eso es otro cantar!
There is a similar expression in English, but it involves sports instead of music: it’s a completely different ball game.
Alternatively, you could also say:
🔵 It’s a whole other story
🔵 It’s a different matter altogether
You may have heard of the English expression: to sing a different tune. But while it may also refer to change, it’s actually more applicable to a change in opinion instead of a change in circumstances.
🎤 Maria has always had a very strong pro-choice stance. But after she watched the documentary on abortions, she’s been singing a different tune!
I hope that helps!
