A few vids - "from Russia, with love"

Postby (sowhat) » Sun Sep 14, 2008 12:02 pm

No Rick content, sorry. Just for fun or whatever. All the vids are from the late 90s — early 00s.
Nogu svelo
"Moscow romance"

"Our young funny voices"

Neschastnyj sluchaj
"Nafig-nafig" (To hell with that)

"What did you (mean)"

Visokosnyj god
"Metro"

If anybody wants a translation for one or more songs, just say.
More to follow (if anybody's interested, of course).

Numbers 4, 1 and 3 were my favorites, in that order.
Full translations are not necessary, Sheena, a brief description will suffice for me :D

Well, number one is made up as a cry for help from a poor and homeless.
Number three is about the guy who's so busy that he doesn't have time for friends, women, etc, and he hates that lifestyle.
Number four is easier to translate than to describe.
What did you mean (Alexei Kortnev)
We've met each other
The Spring before last,
Right the next day
You've brought me to your home.
You've told me, "sit down",
You've told me, "stand up",
Then you've probably got tired
And lied down the sofa.
I got it was a hint,
I'm quick at understanding,
But i don't get what exactly did you mean?

Refrain: What did you mean? (Several times)

I haven't yet got familiar with your face
When we went and bought some two rings.
Organ was playing, everybody was drinking wine.
Your mother called me "son" for some reason.
I got it was a hint,
I'm quick at understanding,
But i don't get what exactly did you mean?

Refrain.

Oh yeah, you thought i was sleeping, but i saw, my friend,
That you were pouring some white powder in my soup.
What a strange taste! It's getting dark!
And you've said, "okay, see you in heaven".
I got it was a hint,
I'm quick at understanding,
But i don't get what exactly did you mean?

Refrain.

How do i live without you? Silent melancholy is over,
I'm good, better than ever,
I'm flying here in the darkness, and you're still on Earth,
And somehow are not rushing to see me.
But that's okay, i'll wait.
Cause i have to learn
What was that ring for,
And the powder,
And why your Mom called me "son".
Well i was asking here but everybody takes eyes off me,
They're angels of course but how do they know
So fly to me, i'm eagerly waiting,
Albeit you know, albeit you know,
I think i'm starting to understand what did you mean.

Refrain.
Nothing will get you dead quicker than being deadly serious about yourself.

I love it! The video is hilarious, and tells the story almost by itself. The other one about the guy with the laptop - we have some places like that here too :lol: The homeless theme one is just great, visually. The song's not bad, too, maybe the best song.
