Russian Music
« on: September 05, 2008, 11:07:11 AM »
Hello dear friends!
I watched one Romanov video where was a beautiful russian ballad. It is called "Russia" and it is performed by Julia. I wonder if anybody knows more about russian ballads and could give me the names of the songs.  I would be very happy.

Than you.

Moscow Nights is beautiful, I agree!
My Russ101 class had to sing that for class.

One of my favorite songs is called "Это всё" or "This is it". It's by a band called ДДТ, or DDT.
It's really beautiful, but I can't seem to find a really good version of it on YouTube. This is as close as I can find
Here are Lyrics and the such.

That was the first Romanov fan video I had seen and I agree the song is so beautiful.   
Beautiful faithful Nargony.

And finally..with a little help of my russian friends i had  Yulia`s "Russia" in mp3. I also had the translation thanks to my friend Pavel


"Crops have not been gathered yet
From your fields,
Your land is striped with roads

The light-brown haired heads
Of your sons
Don’t appear light brown anymore,
But grey

Cloud… A smokey
Cloud of snowstorm
are spreaded from the ground
And from the roads

Let your clear blue sky
Be everywhere I go

Chorus:

You’re my love – Russia
You’re my sorrow – Russia
You’re my fate – Russia
You’re my soul – Russia


Endless, endless forests
Are shivering
Silence, silence
Is throughout
Your land
But I can hear the
Voices of your bottomless rivers
And a drunken drone and
Your men’s delirium
Coming from afar…

Chorus:

Crops have not been gathered yet…
Your land is striped with roads…
The light-brown haired heads…
Don’t appear light brown anymore…

It's very... haunting.
Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies. - Groucho Marx

Hope is the thing with feathers, that perches in the soul, and sings the wordless tune, and never stops at all. - Emily Dickinson

I don't know if these count as Russian songs but i like them anyway.

Okonchen Put' (End of the Road) by Yul Brynner, one of his gyspy songs
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=426hAQaQAKM

The Hills of Manchuria by Maxim Troshin, music by I. Shatrov
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fWDgs34wilk

Legend (Legenda in Russian) but in English more searches come up with Crown of Roses. I don't remember who it was written by but it was set to music by Tchaikovsky. It's beautiful and haunting. A lot of searches came up on Youtube but i have no speakers so i don't know if they're any good.

The Crown of Roses (or, The Legend)

When Jesus Christ was yet a child
He had a garden small and wild,
Wherein he cherished roses fair,
And wove them into garlands there.

Now once, as summertime drew nigh,
There came a troop of children by,
And seeing roses on the tree,
With shouts they plucked them merrily.

"Do you bind roses in your hair?"
They cried, in scorn, to Jesus there.
The Boy said humbly, "Take, I pray,
All but the naked thorns away."

Then of the thorns they made a crown,
And with rough fingers pressed it down,
'Til on His forehead, fair and young,
Red drops of blood, like roses sprung.

In the same vein:

Любэ: "Берёзы" - Lyube: "Birches"
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQyYidgk-0Y

Отчего так в России берёзы шумят?
Отчего белоствольные всё понимают?
У дорог прислонившись по ветру стоят
И листву так печально кидают.
=
Why do the birches in Russia rustle the way they do?
Why do these white-trunked trees understand everything?
They stand by the roads, swinging in the wind
And sorrowfully drop their leaves.
« Last Edit: July 22, 2018, 04:41:47 PM by Превед »
Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

(Афанасий Фет: «Ивы и берёзы», 1843 / 1856)

All of this is beautiful without even hearing it.  I cannot wait to get home from work and follow up on these posts with sound turned on.
