"Ребята с нашего двора" из альбома "Песни о людях" (1997) / "The guys from our courtyard" from album "Songs about people" (1997)







When you get tired from the evening noise
Then go through the old lanes
And introduced himself friends next to himself
And breathe the student air

This wonderful and blessed evening
Repeated every spring
It will seize you by open conversation
And will rock like suspension bridge

And you will sing about the light in your favorite window
And about the stars that burn silently above the horizon
And you will sing and maples will sigh softly
And again guys from our courtyard will join in to you

And you will be remember the sounds of the accordion
From the windows wide open at midnight.
You will remember Vitka red troublesome neighbor
And Cyril with name "flakon".

You remember wearing beer in cans?
It cursed the whole yard.
And remember you and I have smoked secretly on the balcony?
And then there was a serious conversation with father.

And I thank the Spring
For the homeland that still alive yet
And for Gagarin
Who once made his great flight in April

Translation by Alex Him.





"Солдат" из альбома "Полустаночки" (2000) / "Soldier" from album "Small railway stations" (2000)








Third day on the road, wind, stones, rains,
Still ahead and ahead, our company holds up
Third day on the road, hey, brother, don't be sad -
An order is an order, every one of us knows.

Write a little letter, nothing is dearer for fighters.
Write a couple of words, you girls, for your boys.

And at sunrise ahead marches on the company of soldiers
Goes on, to win and to not die;
And you, give them a smoke out there, comrade chief sergeant,
I believe in your spirit, soldier, soldier, soldier

Third day on the road, wind, stones, rains,
At sunrise we to battle, the day shall begin with fire.
Third day on the road, and who knows what awaits us,
Third day on the road and sunrise comes.

Write a little letter, how is our beloved home doing?
From far-far away clouds shall carry it to me.
And at sunrise the company goes on ahead.

Earth fell, from the sky earth fell,
Tearing the scream: "A bitch you are, war!"
Armor melted, the machine gun choked breathlessly,
You looked into the eyes of death, sergeant of the guard.

Translation by Ana.





"Там за туманами" из альбома "Песни о людях" (1997) / "There Beyond the Fog" from album "Songs about people" (1997)








Blue sea, nothing but sea astern.
Blue sea and we're far from home.
There beyond the endless, hazy fog,
There beyond the fog, lies our homeland shore.

The waves whisper, implore and tug,
But these wondrous waves can't stop or detain us.
There beyond the endless, hazy fog,
There beyond the fog, they love and await us.

Sevastopol, Kamchatka and Kronstadt await us.
Our homeland has faith in us and awaits its native sons,
There beyond the endless, hazy fog,
There beyond the fog, their wives cannot sleep.

And we'll return, of course, we'll finish this voyage,
And we'll smile and hold our children close.
There beyond this endless, hazy fog,
There beyond the fog, we'll finish this song.

Аквариум



"Aquarium or Akvarium (Russian: Аква́риум) is a Russian rock group formed in Leningrad (now Saint Petersburg, Russia) in 1972. The band had many member changes over its 40-year history, and at the end the only remaining original member was lead singer and founder Boris Grebenshikov."

Text by Wikipedia.





"Мама я не могу больше пить" из альбома "Беспечный русский бродяга" (2006) / "Mom, I cannot drink anymore" from album "Carefree Russian Rover" (2006)

Maybe it's the unofficial video.










Mom, I cannot drink anymore,
Mom, I cannot drink anymore,
Mom, pour out all the drinks standing on table,
I cannot drink anymore.
I have an iron lasso on me,
I cross myself when I see a wineglass,
I'm not able to maintain this lie,
Mom, I cannot drink anymore.

The patriots will say I proved to be weak,
And I've practically sold my home country.
They feel easy, but I go down to the bottom.
I see how the thread is becoming all thinner.
I didn't play the fool,
For 35 years I worked all day long,
But I cannot kill an alien in myself,
Mom, I cannot drink anymore.

Mom, I cannot drink anymore,
Mom, I cannot drink anymore,
Mom, call all my friends
And tell them that I cannot drink anymore.
Here it is - "Catcher in the Rye",
And there are knives under my bare feet,
I'm so tired of "living not by lie",
I cannot drink anymore.

Tell my brothers that now I've grown adult,
Tell the sister that I'm sick in my soul.
I might be an ordinary man
But I missed this role.
I've entered the endless forest,
I look upwards, but I cannot see the sky.
Tell in the church that devil stands in all doorways,
the Demon Alcohol.

Mom, I cannot drink anymore,
Mom, I cannot drink anymore,
Mom, pour out all the drinks standing on table,
I cannot drink anymore.
I have an iron lasso on me
I cross myself when I see a wineglass,
I'm not able to maintain this lie,
Mom, I cannot drink anymore.

"Девушка с веслом" из альбома "Лошадь белая" (2008) / "The Girl with an Oar" from album "A white horse" (2008)








The Girl with an Oar rides on a spirited horse
With her sword unsheathed, I see you came to me.
Come in my yard, knock in my window,
You see I don't sleep, waiting for you for a long time.

Tell me all the truth, not hiding anything.
How are they, the Prince of Tver, the Prince of Ryazan?
How are wires buzzing in the stepp?
How do the Germans and the Horde live in Moscow?

How does your friend live, the Pioneer with Trumpet?
He's all in the cracks, but he's still with you together.
Say hello to him from me,
Until now it's very hot from his fire.

I'll pour you some water from a well,
Take it into your Clean Ponds.
Let the silence shine there,
Let the Sun and the Moon take a walk there.

And whatever happen, hear me, don't be sad,
Dissect with oar the smooth streams in the sky,
Because your oar is like a dashing damask sword,
It'll recover all, and the things will go the best way.

The Girl with an Oar, you are beautiful one.
We are there especially to overcome it (to correct ourselves),
We are strong in our job.
Come to me more, The Girl with an Oar

Translation by barsiscev.





"Поутру в поле" из альбома (?) / "In the morning on the field" from album (?)
Possibly song is not included in any album.





Who could tell about ways of heart?
As it burned halfway to paradise
As it was singing to keep warm
How to dance on the edge

Wherever we went, everything was shallow
Wherever we come: all not what us need
And then our hands move apart branchs of tree
And we went out in the morning on the field

And we see power of a Cross in the morning on the field
In the morning on the field. Oh, my God, how beautiful!
God, how beautiful! My heart is on the freedom
And now we are in the morning on the field

"Crimson and white" came into my songs
We are not here for the parade
We stand together and we fall together
But I will sing to thee, if thou shalt be glad [to woman]

We are waist-deep in the grass and bare feet
And now we come, we dance with the gods
Heaven and earth - that is our share
We were given a freedom in the morning on the field
We were given a freedom in the morning on the field
We were given a freedom in the morning on the field

Translation by (?)




"Crimson and white" from poetry of Mayakovsky


NIGHT

Crimson and white have been tossed and crumbled,
into green they have flung ducats in handfuls,
and to black palms of windows running together
they have dealt burning yellow cards.
etc.

Ногу свело!



"Nogu Svelo! (Russian: Ногу свело! / Cramp in the Leg!) is a popular Russian rock band from Moscow, usually associated with humor and parody and accessible and sometimes childishly simple melodies. They have experimented with many styles in the past and seem to pay particular attention to instrumentation and arrangements and production values."

Text by Wikipedia.





"Московский романс" из альбома "Счастлива, потому что беременна: Синий альбом" (1997) / "Moscow Romance" from album "Happy because I'm pregnant. The Blue Album" (1997)

The text is a parody of a replica of beggars.







Excuse us, please
Help us, good people!
We ourselves are not local...
We were starving and wander.

We came for treatment
and we have all the documents stolen...
At the stations
have no place to stay in.

On the platform is the grandfather
Rickets and flat feet...
Sorry, we are to you
For assistance call.

Do not be angry, dear people...
Good luck!
Sorry for the appeal,
I wish you health and happiness...
Help, please!

Your land, your family...
Help, what will be able to!

Translation by (?)





"Волки" из альбома "Счастлива, потому что беременна: Зелёный альбом" (1999) / "Wolves" from album "Happy because I'm pregnant. The Green Album" (1999)








zom-zom, night behind the window
Starry night falls from the roof
The victims of the day the smell of the earth
And you look in the sky, I know you're not asleep
No, no, I have not forgotten
How many are with you, we, love, together
So, as we are, no one loved
Can a hundred years, maybe two hundred

Chorus:

If you fall asleep you, I too sleep
To always be near to you
If you go, I go
After you
As the night after the star

The cold, the shadow is not visible
You waited for the hour of the wolf
We are close, and our fangs
Remember the warmth of fresh meat

Translation by (?)





"Идем на Восток!" из альбома "Идем на Восток!" (2005) / "Going East!" from album "Going East!" (2005)

It is a soundtrack to the movie "The Turkish Gambit" / "Турецкий гамбит" (2005).








Crescent silent, and again with the mysterious East wind blew.
Crescent silent, and again go to war Petersburg and Istanbul.
Hanging month old, does not want a damn, does turn into the moon.
He listens to songs, sad songs about those who languish in captivity.

Life hung in the balance,
Step - and body on the slippery board.
Steel wanted blood sip
Steel wheezed: Go East!

Hum drums, but evil Ottomans sit and pass the city.
Whistling scimitars, but hazy sky lit up the young star.
Defeated the enemy, and sneaky traitor played his final gambit.
Silent crescent and the departing train looks sad.

Life hung in the balance
Step - and body on the slippery board
Steel wanted blood sip
Steel wheezed: Go East!

I like to listen to their songs but sad enough, I can't always understand what they are singing. For example, what language are they singing right in this song?



Also, their frontman looks rather Serbian than Russian for me:




Who is he actually: Serb or Russian?

I realize this thread is about more modern Russian music: however, I'd like to put in a GEORGEOUS and virtuoso pianist, Olga Kern, who shared the Cliburn piano competition first prize in 2001, performing the last ten minutes of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3:


I hope the beauty of the Concerto as well as the beauty of the pianist is enjoyed.

This is not surprising. This song does not have any language. It's just a collection of random sounds similar to some kind of language

In this interview - https://echo.msk.ru/programs/argentum/36700/ - he claims that:

"что касается моего происхождения, то все Покровские мои русские, москвичи, а моя мама из Днепропетровска родом, соответственно, там Украина."

That is, he says that on his father's side he is a Russian, and more specifically the Muscovite. But about his mother he says that she was born in Dnepropetrovsk, i.e. in the Ukraine.

Ленинград



"Leningrad (Russian: Ленинград) is a popular Russian rock band from Saint Petersburg (formerly Leningrad), led by Sergey "Shnur" Shnurov.

Composed of 14 members, the band was founded in the late 1990s. Leningrad soon became notorious for vulgar lyrics (including lots of Russian mat) and celebration of alcoholism, which were also the main reasons most radio stations initially avoided the band. This did not stop Leningrad's growing popularity, partly because of the rich brass sound. The band eventually made its way to radio and TV (filler noises covering the prohibited words).

As Shnurov said himself: "Our songs are just about the good sides of life, vodka and girls that is."

The band was so disliked by the then mayor of Moscow Yuriy Luzhkov, that he cancelled all of its attempted large-scale events in the city during his term in office. Leningrad's numerous performances in Moscow were therefore limited to privately owned night clubs and bars."

Adagio is one of my favorite music pieces. Here are two fantastic Russian versions:



( I recognize the voice of the man introducing the piece in the first video. He is the announcer at the Moscow Victory Day parade. This concert at the Kremlin was probably on the same occasion.)
