Remember I recently introduced you to a hit pop song Такого как Путин, Eng: “A Man Like Putin.” To listen to it (with Eng subs) go to Happy Birthday, Mr. President! Putin’s 65th Anniversary Around the World.
Today, in the run-up to the centennial of the 1917 Russian Revolution and as an intro to the upcoming EARTH SHIFT WEBINAR 6: THE PUTIN ENIGMA, allow me to introduce you to several other contemporary clips with hit songs about Russia and Putin.
This is for those who really want to FULLY understand what it means to be The Great Balancer and how Russia is able to pull it off… HINT: by having a huge sense of humor in the face of adversity and balancing between serious stuff and laughter.
This is a small piece of the big puzzle, a little brick in the construction of the Great Earth Shift. Note that in this medley all songs are contemporary, written in the 2000s.
Натали: Володя, Володя
Volodia, Volodia by Natali (Volodia is endearing version of the full name Vladimir)
Translated just a few lines, so you know what it’s about:
Don’t believe the bad weather,
Don’t believe the fogs and rains,
The rains will pass
And the sun will smile at us again.
A seemingly light dance song about a girl having a crash on Volodia, it reveals a much deeper meaning for those who know the truth… referring to the many character assassination attacks Putin had to endure, and of course, the hybrid war against Russia:
Танцуй Россия и плачь Европа
A very famous hit song, Dance Russia and Cry Europe. Sorry, dear Europeans. Incidentally, there is nothing derogatory or bad about the EU or Europe in it. It’s a seemingly light, and even frivolous pop song about a simple but very pretty Russian girl, which nevertheless has a clear political undercurrent, expressed via indirect hints.
The video below, showcasing the amazing art of Russian artistic gymnastics (sometimes referred to as ‘rhythmics’), set to the aforementioned song, is entitled, Don’t cry, the washed-out Europe. Clever reference to Ukraine’s Poroshenko recently declaring, after EU authorized 90-day visa-free travel for Ukrainians, ‘Goodbye unwashed Russia, hello clean Europe.’ Of course, that generated a million sarcastic jokes, this clip being a satire, very well understood by Russians. The song + very cool footage are well worth the watch.
Two songs below are also contemporary, but very different in tone — patriotic and uplifting:
Олег Газманов – Вперед, Россия!
Go, Russia! by Oleg Gazmanov
Great reminder clip showcasing Russia’s multi-cultural, military, historic and contemporary footage.
Translated just a few lines for you:
It was like this in Russia since olden days:
The higher the pressure, the stronger the rock.
But when danger arrives at our doorstep,
The motherland turns into one single monolith.
Мы – Армия Страны! Мы – Армия Народа!
We are the army of the people! (by Alexandrov Red Army Choir and Russian Army at the Red Square Victory Day Parade)
