Sad Song for Monday

Gori, gori moya zvezda.





Shine, shine my star - sung by Anna German.

If you don't get a direct connect to the MP3 file, click on the http://www.sagedragonru.narod.ru/music/fmystar.mp3 link in the yellow stripe about 1/3rd of the way down the page.

Or, don't bother clicking on anything at all. Try Oleg Pogudin's version, search YouTube or Google for this or anything else. Make a sandwich, smoke a cool cigarette, lick Vanilla ice-cream or Dulce de Leche off your Beloved. Whatever.

Beautiful. Where do you manage to find these? Was trying to find Dvorak's Song to the Moon but only free good version is in MP3 with USSR national Anthem and other wierd stuff. No 6 in here (not counting the odd little bits between about willy shaped night lights I think)

mmm....dulce de leche

This is again, lovely.

I have nothing else of note to say at the moment. Please pretend I have posted something witty and also of depth. I will let you know when I can write my own material again.

Preved, Xoggoth! And thank you for the link to the Dvorak. And the Ligeti.

And Paul Robeson singing the USSR anthem..?!? A very odd Sentimental Mix indeed.

I found the song through a tragic story on a Ukrainian blog I follow, the writer had it played at her father's funeral.

Hello, WickedRed, glad you liked it.

I tried to think of something witty and of depth that might have been posted, and my brains turned to the consistency of addled yoghurt. Better not.
