Ten Christmas covers, overtaken by the originals

It is said that everything new is well forgotten old. We decided to support this expression and prepared for you a fresh selection of “bearded” Christmas hits in new arrangements, which overshadowed their originals on all counts. Go!

Carol of the Bells [original] One of the most popular Christmas compositions is none other than the Ukrainian folk song “Shchedryk”, adapted by Nikolai Leontovich. The composer worked on it for almost twenty years: the first edition was presented in 1901, and in 1916 it was first performed by the choir of Kiev University. The English analogue of “Shchedryk” – “Carol of the Bells” – sounded in “South Park”, “The Simpsons”, “Family Guy”, “Adams Family”, “Die Hard” … this list is endless. Continue reading

Under the dark skies: nine dark musical genres

To write this article was not an easy task, because it contains a philosophical paradox: a person always subconsciously strove for what he most fears. The darkness of the night surrounding the Cro-Magnon in his pitiful home, around a hostile world inhabited by dangerous creatures. Dark jungle of forests, the depths of the seas and oceans. An even darker and more frightening cosmos where it is extremely difficult to survive. But the most terrifying – where will he go at the end of his path? This place in the mass consciousness has always been inhabited by terrible monsters and terrible pictures of existence there after. Well, it can’t all end like this, right? Should there be anything there? Well, here it is …

Sigmund Freud ultimately reduced all human aspirations to the dualistic principle of the struggle between two basic instincts – sexual attraction and death drive:

Yevgeny Khavtan and Robert Lenz, Bravo: “Not Russian rock, but Russian twist!”

The group “Bravo” celebrated its 35th anniversary and releases an album of rare songs. We talk with band vocalist Robert Lentz and permanent leader of the band, guitarist, songwriter and vocalist Yevgeny Khavtan about the secrets of creative longevity, how to write a hit and about what modern rap sounds like in the 50s rock and roll.

– The obvious question: how does such a solid anniversary feel?
Lenz: The number of years is just a figure, but in reality this date itself is no different from another. True, any concert should be cool, and the anniversary – even more cool. And so – it was 34, now 35. Yes, a respectable age. It’s nice that the group exists so much. I myself have been singing in her for 23 years (laughs). Havtan: When we made up the anniversary program, it turned out that two and a half hours of some hits. A lot, had to sacrifice. Made a potpourri of several songs. Continue reading
