I dreamed of you for three years

A Jewish musician from Odessa. Good stuff. War and post-war (40’s and 50’s) songs.

About a sailor Kostya:

“I love you, life” (who knew Russians had such songs, huh?):

“Beloved city” (I always thought the song was about Leningrad, because it’s my favorite city, but I guess for Marc Bernes it would be about Odessa):

“Dark night”:

“I dreamed of you for three years”:

Compare the above (it helps if you know the lyrics, but if you don’t, it’s all very romantic and idealistic) with this.
