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):
“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.
