February Challenge

So, I’ve spent the last few weeks singing Очи чёрные (I don’t distinguish myself much for originality, do I?). It wasn’t a very pleasant experience for anyone within earshot, I assure you, ;-) but it was something unusual for me and so it was kind of fun, actually.

Here’s a link to one version of the song, not necessarily the one I like best, but at least it stays close to the lyrics I have (more on that on my log).

Очи чёрные, очи жгучие,
Очи страстные и прекрасные,
Как люблю я вас, как боюсь я вас,
Знать увидел вас я не в добрый час.

Очи чёрные, очи пламенны
И мaнят они в страны дальные,
Где царит любовь, где царит покой,
Где страданья нет, где вражды запрет.

Очи чёрные, очи жгучие,
Очи страстные и прекрасные,
Как люблю я вас, как боюсь я вас,
Знать увидел вас я не в добрый час.

Не встречал бы вас, не страдал бы так,
Я бы прожил жизнь улыбаючись,
Вы сгубили меня очи чёрные
Унесли на век моё счастье.

Очи чёрные, очи жгучие,
Очи страстные и прекрасные,
Как люблю я вас, как боюсь я вас,
Знать увидел вас я не в добрый час.


Dark eyes, burning eyes
Passionate and splendid eyes
How I love you, How I fear you
Verily, I saw you at a sinister hour

Dark eyes, flaming eyes
They implore me into faraway lands
Where love reigns, where peace reigns
Where there is no suffering, where war is forbidden

Dark eyes, burning eyes
Passionate and splendid eyes
I love you so, I fear you so
Verily, I saw you at a sinister hour

If I hadn't met you, I wouldn't be suffering so
I would have lived my life smiling
You have ruined me, dark eyes
You have taken my happiness away forever

Dark eyes, burning eyes
Passionate and splendid eyes
I love you so, I fear you so
Verily, I saw you at a sinister hour

Excuse the military theme, but I like this one and I don't know many other russian songs.

1954В путь


В путь
Музыка: Василий Соловьев-Седой Слова: Михаил Дудин

Путь далёк у нас с тобою,
Веселей, солдат, гляди!
Вьётся, вьётся знамя полковое,
Командиры впереди.

Солдаты, в путь, в путь, в путь!
А для тебя, родная,
Есть почта полевая.
Прощай! Труба зовёт,
Солдаты - в поход!

Каждый воин, парень бравый,
Смотрит соколом в строю.
Породнились мы со славой,
Славу добыли в бою.

Пусть враги запомнят это:
Не грозим, а говорим.
Мы прошли с тобой полсвета.
Если надо - повторим.

Солдаты, в путь, в путь, в путь!
А для тебя, родная,
Есть почта полевая.
Прощай! Труба зовёт,
Солдаты - в поход!

А теперь для нас настали
Дни учёбы и труда.
Год за годом только процветали
Наши сёла-города!

Солдаты, в путь, в путь, в путь!
А для тебя, родная,
Есть почта полевая.
Прощай! Труба зовёт,
Солдаты - в поход!

The road is long for us (and you)
Cheer up soldier, look!
The flags of the regiment fly,
The commanders ahead.

Soldiers, go on, go on, go on!
And for you, darling,
There is a letter (?)
Bye! The trumpet is calling,
Soldiers, let’s march!
Every warrior, courageous guy,
Looks like a falcon in formation.
We are one with glory,
We fought with glory.
Let the enemies remember this:
It’s not a threat, just saying.
We’ve been in half the world together
And we’ll do it again if we have to.

Soldiers, go on, go on, go on!
And for you, darling,
There is a letter (?)
Bye! The trumpet is calling,
Soldiers, let’s march!

And now   for us have come
Days of learning and work.
In the years to come
Our village
Will only blossom!

Soldiers, go on, go on, go on!
And for you, darling,
There is a letter (?)
Bye! The trumpet is calling,
Soldiers, let’s march!

Damn. This is what I get for procrastinating. I had worked on Очи чёрные as well. I'll have to find another
song. Oh well, I have all day, right?

And Josquin: great news :-)

You could give your own version :) Why change songs?

Hey cosmonauts, I need help to decide which textbook to use next. For the record, I've
started watching Russian films. Still don't have the time to read anything else, though.

I've been through all the Assimils, Nina Potapova's book, Living Language and I'm about
to finish the old 50's TY Russian. I'm considering going for an intermediate textbook but
maybe I'm still missing something. Of course I don't know the declensions by heart but
it's useless to just read more beginner's books with declension charts. My passive skills
have improved a bit and that's my focus, anyway.

I know it's hard, but try to get "Русский Язык" by Овсиенко, the 2nd book, for intermediate learners. It's an amazing book for the intermediate level, with a lot of texts and some exercises. DON'T get the 1st one, it sucks.

Saw it; It's entirely in Russian, I think I need something transitional before facing a
monolingual textbook :D

renaissancemedi’s right! Why change the song?

I’ve listened to dozens of versions of Очи чёрные and I almost couldn't find two which used exactly the same lyrics.
