The lights in Moscow windows switch on.
These are the places where my friends live .
And Iím looking carefully at the Moscow windows....

Raft. Juri Loza.

Juri Loza.Popular songwriter and singer.
Short interlinear translation:
.... On the little raft Iíll go through storms, rain and thunderstorms.
Iíll take with me only hopes, visions and childrenís dreams.
Iíll slowly drift ,
And perhaps discover World where I live.
(listen to it)
Fall. Juri Shevchuk.

One of the greatest rock-musicians of Russia. Leader of rock-group "DTT". Usually his songs are realistic, but sometimes he writes lyrics:

Short interlinear translation:
.... Autumn - what is it? It is crying sky under the feet.
Reflected in the puddles birds and clouds are flying away. Autumn - I miss You.
Autumn - there are burned ships in the sky.
Autumn - Iíll could fly away from Earth,
Autumn - where sadness drowns in the sky.
Autumn - obscure hazy distance.

Evenings near Moscow
Words by Mikhail Matusovsky; music by Vasily Solovjev-Sedoi

This song was written in 1955 and two years later became the symbol of Youthís Festival in Moscow in 1957. It was a great deal for Russia. Since this festival (and partially this song) Khruschev "thaw" started in political and cultural life of Russia. The words of this song are very simple, but it is avery interesting song in modern Russian history.

(listen to it)
Birds of passage are flying.

Short interlinear translation:
.... Birds of passage are flying in an autumn hazy distance.
They are flying to the hot countries, but Iím staying with You.
Iím staying with You, my native forever Land ...
I donít need the strange sun
I donít need the strange land.

It is very beautiful and simultaneously very painful song for Russian people which had to live far away from their native places.

(listen to it)
Walking along Moscow's streets.

This is a very nice and bright song from the similarly nice and bright movie. This movie (1963) was made by a group of young screenwriter, director, composer and actors who now personify pride of Russian culture. This movie is a light comedy about one day in Moscow, about young people: students and workers; about love and friendship. I saw this movie may be six or seven times, and every time I enjoy its kindness, which gives warmth to more than one generation over the last 35-s years.
