Is it just me, or does it seem I'm carrying this thread these days?

Adorably cute and impressively fit Soviet soldiers (Alexandrov ensemble) dancing cossack dance:

Some comments dub it "Soviet breakdance"! :-)

Modern hipster folk version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0JQ0xnJyb0A

Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

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

Irish Telecom advert "Little blonde girl calls Santa on her toy phone"

Australian Woolworths advert "Little girl counts out carrots for Santa's reindeer" (because of the limited time, they leave out Cupid and Donner)

Money On My Mind from the TV movie My Father Must Die

This song has never been released, so this version is fan made.

Passchendaele (After the War by Sarah Slean).  Fitting, since this is the 100th Anniversary of  the  Armistice.

Catchy anthem of the emerging right-wing populist movement in Europe?

Marching song of the Greek Chrysi Avgi - Golden Dawn party: Οι τελευταίοι πιστοί - The Last Faithful Ones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOMNF0dV5UY

(The song as meme culture: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XvpPQaVJlmw)

I became very enamoured with this song and wondered where it came from? Turns out it's an adaption of an Italian hommage to the heroes of the anti-Communist uprising in Hungary in 1956: (Avanti) ragazzi di Buda - (Forward) Boys of Buda: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rx7iEoYJ6_U

Apparently it was written by the broadcaster Pier Francesco Pingitore in 1966 and has been in use by various neo-fascist football hooligan groups, most notably supporters of Lazio. Rocked-up version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vgwrx-xl9KY

Fascinating how a hommage to the anti-Communist resistance in Eastern Europe now becomes a rallying song for those who align themselves with the stance on mass immigration of these countries of the Visegrád Group.

Enticing campfire rendition from some right-wing summer camp in the 1970s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZmRdgD9vYw

BTW while researching this I happened upon this recent German TV report about a so-called 'Anastasia cult' from Russia that had adherents in Germany: Basically eco-fascism worshipping a blond goddess called Anastasia: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp0sx6eZiTk

Cliff Richard - Millennium Prayer

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OsgUUSBwOw0


The Lord's Prayer, sung to the tune of Auld Lang Syne.   Kind of fitting to post this today.

Soviet nostalgia with wonderful 1980s symphonic movie music ("Concerto de Berlin") by Romanian-French composer Vladimir Cosma: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fpUBy-UxgI

Fantastic Italian version of the infamous Cabaret song "Tomorrow Belongs To Me" with better lyrics and images from the Lord of the Rings movies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nQIWfomDUtw The song is an unofficial anthem of the Italian neo-fascist alt-right.

A song from another huge empire:

Fantastic Chinese pop song from a roadmovie about crossing China by car. I stumbled upon it as the soundtrack of a YouTube video about long-distance cycling in China: 平凡之路 = Píngfán zhīlů = The Ordinary Road) by Pu Shu (朴树).

Lyrics with translation
Берёзы севера мне милы,—
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

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