Moscow, baby!

DSC01752 - Copie

Ты никогда не бывал В нашем городе светлом,
Над вечерней рекой Не мечтал до зари.
С друзьями ты не бродил По широким проспектам,
Значит ты не видал Лучший город земли.

К нам в Москву приезжай И пройдись по Арбату,
Окунись на Тверской В шум зелёных аллей.
Хотя бы раз посмотри, Как танцуют девчата
На ладонях больших Голубых площадей.

Слова ты вспомнишь мои, Если только приедешь
И увидишь хоть раз Лучший город Земли.

Песня плывёт, сердце поёт, Эти слова – о тебе, Москва!

Л. Дербенев, 1964

Sie macht mich geil ich leide Qualen
Sie tanzt für mich ich muss bezahlen
я должен платить
Sie schläft mit mir doch nur für Geld
Ist doch die schönste Stadt der Welt*

Rammstein, 2014

Secular history and crazy drive. Bold, high-speed, vintage, sexy, unique – welcome to one of my favourite capital cities!

First built to celebrate the retreat of Napoleon from Russia, pillaged and demolished by communists, than rebuilt again on the end of nineties, it is a symbol of resistance and persistence of faith and values over scurvy interest.

“Из ресторанов в космос не летают!” – “people aren’t going to space from restaurants” – is a quote from Yuri Gagarin. That’s an art object from Sergei Bratkov, inaugurated on the Astranaut day. The meaning? We should not be satisfied with a simple time spending and aim for more global life targets. The building you see behind is a fancy restaurant…that’s Moscow 🙂DSC01921 - Copie DSC01927 - Copie DSC01936 - Copie DSC01947 - Copie DSC01949 - Copie DSC01951 - Copie DSC01979 - Copie

And now, close your eyes and listen…

Listen to “Лучший город земли” (Best city of the world) on Youtube:

Listen to “Moscow never sleeps” on Youtube:

*You’ve never been
In our city, the bright,
Over the evening river
Do not dream until dawn.
With friends you have not wandered
Along the wide avenues,
So you have not seen
The best city in the world.
The song floats, heart sings
These words – about you, Moscow!
The song floats, heart sings
These words – about you, Moscow!
For us to come to Moscow
And pass on the Arbat,
Plunge on Tverskaya
In the noise of green lanes.
Though would just look,
As the girls dance
The hands of large
Blue squares.
The song floats, heart sings
These words – about you, Moscow!
The song floats, heart sings
These words – about you, Moscow!
You will remember my words,
Unless you come
And you’ll see at least once
The best city in the world.
The song floats, heart sings
These words – about you, Moscow!
The song floats, heart sings
These words – about you Moscow!
Moscow!

The Best City Of The World – L.Derbenev, performed by M.Magomaev,  translation from http://lyrics-translations.com/

*She makes me horny I suffer torment
She dances for me I have to pay
I have to pay
She sleeps with me but only for money
It’s still the most beautiful city in the world

Rammstein & TATU, translation from http://herzeleid.com/
