Recommended Posts

Hi all! Lets post here Your favorite songs, melodies and all music related...

 

"Oy, to ne vecher" ("Stepan Razin's Dream"), cossack folk song.

lyrics

 

 

These lyrics may be translated as:

  1. Ah, it is not yet evening, but I have taken an tiny little nap, and a dream came to me;
  2. In the dream that came to me, it was as if my raven-black horse was playing about, dancing about, was being frisky beneath me;
  3. Ah, and there evil winds came flying out of the east, and they ripped the black cap from that wild head of mine.
  4. And the esaul was a clever one, he was able to interpret my dream. "Ah, it will surely come off", he said, "that wild head of yours".

 

 

 

Also, let me show you amazing throat singing - "Play, Play Altai"  by Altai-Kai

 

One more folclore song... from Altai region... Using just two strings, he made my day really :)

His name is Mergen Teldenov. Song is calling "Argymak attar" ("Argymak horse").

 

 

Аттар, аттар слер кайда мантап бардыгар?

Horses, horses, where are You running? 
Аттар, аттар, слер нени сезип турыгар?

Horses, horses, what are You feeling?
Аргымак аттар слер кайда бардыгар?

Argymak horses, where are You going?
Баатырлар качан да мында jуулашкан

Once upon a time, knights fought here
Каны актурып jерге jайылган

They covered an earth with blood
Аргымак аттар слер кайда бардыгар?
Argymak horses, where are You going?
(here, man sitting opposite started wrong - and Mergen said "Jok" - that mean "No")

Туйгактар тибирти тууларга корголып            

Clatter of hoofs are going over the mountains
Чоолдорго сындарга чойо баргылайт              

Going over the steppes
Аргымак аттар слер кайда бардыгар?             

Argymak horses, where are You going?

 

 

Cheers! Waiting for Your folk and other native music :)

Yup, I know them.

Listen this: heavy metal from Tuva (near Altai region)...

 

Band call Yat-Kha

Lyrics could be translated as:

 

 

A black-brown runner horse runs like lightning through the endless black steppe.
The black hair of a beautiful girl is moving in the wind. In the sunset light of the steppe,
the black-brown running horse can run like lightning.
The black hair of a beautiful girl, moving in the wind.

I'm gonna catch a ton of flak from metal purists for this, but recently I've really started to enjoy Volbeat. I've tried to put them off for a long time, but it's just so damn catchy.

 

I've been playing Outlaw Gentlemen And Shady Ladies on repeat while flying BoS recently, and I'm enjoying every second of it.

There I said it. Go ahead and shoot me!

How could anyone be a WWII era history buff and not love this song?

Glen Miller is great, but in the context of BoS it might be more fitting to play Alexandr Tsfasman. His music, while not as refined, is some of the wildest and most energetic swing to come out of the USSR in the 20s and 30s:

I enjoyed those Finkeren, especially the first and third songs. I'm not a student of music by any means but I think they'd have fit into almost any 1930s Hollywood big band musical. The middle one had more of a Jazz or even a little Ragtime sound to it, at least to me. Still good, just different. Thanks for posting those, I've never heard them before.

Yeah I was surprised to learn a couple of years ago, that the USSR had actually been front runners in big band jazz and swing in the Stalin era. I always had the impression, that mainstream culture turned quite regressive in the years leading up to the war, but apparently I was wrong, at least concerning music. Tsfasman is about as mainstream as you could get in the Soviet Union at the time.

 

It's funny, because when media portray the USSR during the war, it's usually the more traditional folk songs a la "Katyusha" or older Russian classical pieces like "Farewell Slavianka" that are showcased. But in reality it would be more correct to have people dancing swing or foxtrot, and the Kossacks playing big band jazz rather than balalaika. :happy:

Well, we here cant imagine wartime songs without:

 

Leonid Utyosov - "Mishka The Sailor". Song is about a sailor from Odessa, who swear to return to his motherland and liberate it from nazis. Interestingly, song was introduced in 1942, and Odessa was freed in 1944.

 

 

Широкие лиманы, зеленые каштаны,
Качается шаланда на рейде голубом...
В красавице Одессе мальчишка голоштанный
С ребячьих лет считался заправским моряком.
И если горькая обида
Мальчишку станет донимать,
Мальчишка не покажет вида,
А коль покажет, скажет ему мать:

Припев:
«Ты одессит, Мишка, а это значит,
Что не страшны тебе ни горе, ни беда:
Ведь ты моряк, Мишка, моряк не плачет
И не теряет бодрость духа никогда».

Широкие лиманы, поникшие каштаны,
Красавица Одесса под вражеским огнем...
С горячим пулеметом, на вахте неустанно
Молоденький парнишка в бушлатике морском.
И эта ночь, как день вчерашний,
Несется в крике и пальбе.
Парнишке не бывает страшно,
А станет страшно, скажет он себе:
 

Припев.
Широкие лиманы, сгоревшие каштаны,
И тихий скорбный шепот приспущенных знамен...
В глубокой тишине, без труб, без барабанов,
Одессу покидает последний батальон.
Хотелось лечь, прикрыть бы телом
Родные камни мостовой,
Впервые плакать захотелось,
Но комиссар обнял его рукой:
 

Припев.
Широкие лиманы, цветущие каштаны
Услышали вновь шелест развернутых знамен,
Когда вошел обратно походкою чеканной
В красавицу Одессу гвардейский батальон.
И, уронив на землю розы,
В знак возвращенья своего
Наш Мишка не сдержал вдруг слезы,
Но тут никто не молвил ничего.

Припев:
Хоть одессит Мишка,-
А это значит,
Что не страшны ему ни горе, ни беда:
Ведь ты моряк, Мишка, моряк не плачет,
Но в этот раз поплакать, право, не беда!

 

 

Legendary song: "Davay zakurim" (Lets smoke). The "must listen" for soviet infantrymen. Song is about liberation of Ukraine from nazists.

Lyrics

 

Теплый ветер дует развезло дороги
и на Южном фронте оттепель опять
Тает снег в Ростове тает в Таганроге
эти дни когда-нибудь мы будем вспоминать
Об огнях-пожарищах о друзьях-товарищах
где-нибудь когда-нибудь мы будем говорить
Вспомню я пехоту и родную роту
и тебя за то что ты дал мне закурить
Давай закурим товарищ по одной
давай закурим товарищ мой

Нас опять Одесса встретит как хозяев
звезды Черноморья будут нам сиять
Славную Каховку город Николаев
эти дни когда-нибудь мы будем вспоминать
Об огнях-пожарищах о друзьях-товарищах
где-нибудь когда-нибудь мы будем говорить
Вспомню я пехоту и родную роту
и тебя за то что ты дал мне закурить
Давай закурим товарищ по одной
давай закурим товарищ мой

А когда не станет горя и в помине
и к своим любимым мы придем опять вспомним
как на запад шли по Украине
эти дни когда-нибудь мы будем вспоминать
Об огнях-пожарищах о друзьях-товарищах
где-нибудь когда-нибудь мы будем говорить
Вспомню я пехоту и родную роту
и тебя за то что ты дал мне закурить
Давай закурим товарищ по одной
давай закурим товарищ мой
давай закурим товарищ мой

 

 

"V zemlyanke" ("In the blindage"). Wonderfull song about love during the war.

I knew 'Mishka' beforehand, but not the two others. 'Davay zakurim' was great.

Mark Bernes, "Tiomnaya Noch" from film "Two soldiers", 1943:

 

Lyrics in English:

 

 

Dark in the night.

Bullet’s whistling all over the steppe,

 Only wind’s humming up in the wires,

Only stars dimly twinkle.

Dark in the night,

You, my darling, not sleep in your bed,

And, when quietly cradling the crib,

Wipe away secret tears. Love for your eyes!

Their depth gently touches my heart.

What I desire,

Just to kiss them again so lightly.

This very night,

Separated us greatly, my Love!

And this frightening black winter steppe has lain down between us.

Still I believe, Trusting you, dear spouse of mine.

In these dark nights, only this faith,

Kept me safe from a bullet.

Feeling of joy, Makes me calm in the deadliest battle,

Knowing, you always meet me with love,

No matter what happened.

No fear of death,

I have met it, not once in the steppe,

It is spinning above me in air,

Now and then, or elsewhere.

Waiting for me,

You are awake, staying by baby’s bed,

And I know, forever and now,

No wrong to me will happen.

At the moment I'm listening to this, as well as the rest of the new album.

 

Be warned, graphic stuff contained in the video.  :ph34r:

I'm a Beach Boys fan,,Not a huge one but like many people the songs of theirs that I do like I really like! In the 80s I saw a short bit of film of Brian Wilson laying in bed being interviewed and I wondered what was wrong. Over the years there's been a bio pic here and there one by John Stamos wasn't bad but this one look's great and what a cast. I can hardly wait!!!

Not that I disagree with the message, but that video might cross the line for what kind of political speech is allowed on this forum.

As for what I'm listening to now: I kinda think the lyrics are pretty shallow and unoriginal and the video flat out sucks, but Muse sure knows how to create a tune that sticks with you for days:

 

Warning: Explicit lyrics.

I just wanted to share this.

A triology about the Battle of Stalingrad from Macbeth, a German Metal Band.

This gives me thrills and goosebumps!

The Lyrics are in german though.

Ah yes, the GoT covers. It's an awesome tune to be sure. Honestly though, I think that one is a bit too close to the original to be really interesting.

 

I prefer this one:

 

 

Who wouldn't want to see GoT reimagined as a Sergio Leone-style western?

I have probably posted this before, from movie Master and Commander. Its always nice to see music being "laboured" that is arms setting strings in vibration creating resonating sounds from wooden instruments.

A really cool song from russian Metal band Aria (Apust).

An Emil and Spitfire fighting to the last.

Although I don´t understand a single word, this is pretty cool!
