I think I still didn't answer this question... at least, don't remember... My favourite lines are from the same song: And just when I was sure that his teachings were pure He went and drowned himself in the pool. Talking of the entire songs I'd choose another ones as my favourite (or, rather, "more ...

Well, I've already "checked" it. That's funny! In fact, that's close to an original and, at the same time, sounds as a Russian folk song a bit... And... good parody on/of/? LC, by the way :lol: ! But there's one LC' song - Seems So Long Ago, Nancy. It always reminded me of "Milen'kij ty moj" (My Dar...

Really :lol: ?! Did they sing exactly "Dance Me..." :lol: ?! Dang, why didn't I see those "Old songs"? I remember they advertised it very widely. I regret now! Yes, soviet song, indeed! :lol: 8)

The funny thing is the fact that, perhaps, thanks to this Lavender Dance Me... became very popular here some years later. So far as I remember it was the only LC' song which they repeatedly put on the air at our FM-stations. Don't remember I heard anything else there, but this one sounded veeery oft...

Ha, Lavaaan-da-a... :lol: In fact, I can confirm, it's really considered to be plagiarism here. I even heard (or read :? ) a story of its composing. Matezky visited Makarevich (one of our "rockers") who had LC' album. He listened to the Dance Me... there and then decided to use this song in his own ...

Yes, Jurica, I think I understand what you mean since my own sweat believes of that kind have died long, long time ago, too. I can confess I even envy a bit to those ones who still have some “social believes”. That isn’t so when just terrorists are spoken of, and I don’t see them in this way at all ...

I can say what made me perceive Jurica’s post as a kind of “advocating” this way of acting – rather than an attempt to understand those who choose it. They were those “I admire” words. I hope, though, it was nothing else than inappropriate wording. And if it’s so – I’m ready to present my apologies ...

Dem, what hypocrisy are you talking about? We are ordinary women here (I mean those of us who are women, of course), we are not “iron maidens”, and if we don’t talk of everything that pains us, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t pain. Dear Elizabeth, dear Bee, thank you! Yeah, this KGB, ***** *** * ***...

I’m trying to choose some correct words and phrases to express that what I feel now, but I can’t… Some trash runs through my head – something like this phrase from one old cartoon film, “Guys, let’s hit it off!” Life is so short, and there’s so much pain… Well… I’d be better to keep silent otherwise...

Dear Jarrko, I, personally, have nothing against closing this thread. After all, we really can "grapple" with each other somewhere else :wink: :lol: . However, if my last two posts were "too much" in a certain sense, I offer my apologies to everyone who can be insulted by them. I intentionally have ...

As for Al-Qaeda and others of that ilk in general… Yes, it may be possible to understand why people fall for the bait of their ideology. Abject poverty and sufferings sometimes are “good” ground for the tendency to incline to the extreme views. But it’s necessary to understand, as well, that, in fac...

Jurica, there’re may be some reasons to get into fighting. But there’re also different ways to wage war. Midnight, thank you for the input. It looks like they still don’t “hang noodles on our ears” now. [That means don’t “dupe us”.] The thing rather is that the official information goes with some de...

Jurica, may I drop dead if I understand what all of that is about...

I can imagine myself killing one who intends to kiill so many, but to imagine myself at his place?! Whatever anyone could do with me, my family, my friends... to go and to bomb children anywhere... what is it?

Paula, thank you. Of course, I’m not surprised. It couldn’t be otherwise. Of course, it’s natural to not be indifferent in such situations. I must confess I didn’t know of that tragedy in Dunblain, I’m so sorry for the children! But it was the same here in the September, 11. I remember my own feelin...
