    on the song or in the song????

    "There are singers from different countries on the song."

    Is it "on the song" or "in the song"?

    Re: on the song or in the song????

    It's an odd sentence. I wouldn't say either.

    I was wondering what preposition is used.

    ostap.
    If this is a recording with a lot of people performing on it, I would tend to say: "There are singers from different countries on the track (or record, or recording)" .. rather than on the song. But certainly "on", not "in".

    Is it a regional difference? Rover KE said he would use either.

    No, he said he wouldn't say either. Neither would I, so I gave some alternatives that I would be more likely to say.

    I've removed my previous post since I've misread Rover-K's message. Sorry!
