NOT YOUR PARENTS KARAOKE

One of my friends had asked about my musical tastes, and I mentioned melodic offerings discovered through the kind assistance of e-kvetcher, during the subsequent discussion.
I cannot say that I listen to standard stuff, but I am not alone.
Youtube proves that.

Largely because of e-kvetcher I ended up finding Vulgargrad's rendition of Limonchiki.


OH, MY TINY LEMONS!

The song is NOT about lemons, in case you were wondering.


The rendition below by Alex Kopyt is quite different.

E-kvetcher once posted a link to cake.
Cake is good.


Here are two good examples of e-kvetcher's further musical taste. Or curiosity. Interesting stuff in any case.

SPACE BONG

Other than Odessan-Russian gangster rap and klezmoric oddities from Mokum Alef, my musical tastes run to Zydeco, Cajun, drunken Irishmen, Cantonese opera, Mandarin nightclub oldies, both country AND western, and altogether a jolly pleasing racket.


Such as this thing here:

BATHROBED MEN - ON HORSEBACK!

And naturally, evil subversive stuff.

COMMUNISISISTIC HIPPOPOTATATATAMUS!

Lastly, a bunch of men in uniforms tromping through deep snow in the Hakkōda mountains.
I find it very inspiring.

YUKI NO SHINGUN

"Yuki no Shin-gun, kori o funde.....  "





Oh what the heck. One more. The Aikoku Koshinkyoku, composed by Setoguchi Tōkichi.
