Moon Pride is one my favorite Crystal song and sailor moon song in general. I wish we had a dubbed of Moon Pride though.I just want to hear it in English.

I agree.
It would make the English dub just a bit more special.

I'm glad we tend to not dub anime openings anymore...the end results are rarely good, and even if they do sound okay, the language used always sounds a bit "off" due to having to match the song beats while translating but also making it rhyme or sound "song-y" enough. It's difficult work and I think it's beyond the ken of most dubbing studios.

That said, there are plenty of English covers for it on YouTube, as well as covers in other languages.

They would have to write an entirely new song in order for it to not grate on the ears.

Take for instance, Boku Wa Motto Pioneer from Tenchi Muyou.
The Japanese version is quite good, and somehow they wrote English lyrics for the same melody which is in its own right a decent song while not trying to be a translation of the original. The English version is simply called "I am a Pioneer."

Some people will just have to settle for learning how to sing and pronounce the Japanese lyrics correctly as their "English Version."

It'd still be in Japanese.

Music rights are too expensive these days for anime companies to afford the license to dub them and the Sailor Moon license was already expensive as is. But this is still the best dub opening for an anime by far.
