Top songs by Igor Kornelyuk according to Fuzz Music magazine

Igor Kornelyuk - one of the most spectacular representatives of the native scene! When he was young, he gave such fiery performances that the audience was powerless: all they had to do was clap their hands, smile sincerely, and chant uncomplicatedbut such sticky songs! In general - Kornelyuk is a phenomenon of our pop art.

Bright, charismatic, talented - this artist fell into the hearts of many people. Talented composer and performer - Igor quickly climbed up the career ladder. He managed to pick up "star sickness"But fortunately for myself, he quickly "recovered.

"I always wrote music from my heart, so that first of all I liked it. I didn't strive to get into "trends", as it's fashionable to say nowadays! I'm just a positive person, I like to have fun. But sometimes I am in a dramatic mood as well, which is also reflected in my work. And if people genuinely like my songs, I'm pleasantly flattered.

Today we decided to enjoy songs by Igor Kornelyuk! We have found in our selection both big hits and compositions "a little bit smaller" in terms of popularity, but not at all worse in terms of quality. The most powerful songs were left for "dessert", as they say!


This song graces the album "Ticket to the ballet." 1989. By the way: the gorgeous saxophone part is a credit to Alexander Boichuk.

The video is a fragment of a musical film "Whoo-whoo-whoo-whoo.". It turned out to be very epic, bright, and perky... All in the best traditions of Kornelyuk.

"It's time to go home."

A worthy track from the album "Wait..."which came out in the early '90s.

This song has a very beautiful romantic message: The lyrical hero does not want to say goodbye to his beloved, although it is already time for him to go home. And so, together they wander and "catch happy moments"!

"Walking in Paris."

And although this song is about flirting in the "city of love," Paris, the lyrics are very comicwith Kornelyuk-style humor!

"C'est la vie, anyone can understand me.
If there is no money, what kind of love is there?
So I'll go to Syktyvkar for now
I'll save some money there..."

"The Month of May."

Completely uncomplicated The song is lyrical in its content, but what a sound!

"The Month of May," by the way, also graced the album "Wait..." - And it's a pretty good one, too.

On the one hand, the song is very mock. On the other hand - instructive. It tells the story of a monkey who decides to "flip" his jungle companions during the drought to go to the reservoir alone. But nothing good came of it.

Here's the gist, as sung at the end of the track Kornelyuk:

"Take the buckets, go get water,
But call your family and friends,
Just keep in mind and tell others,
That there are monkeys among men too!"

"Little House."

Definitely a worthy track on our list. It's got a special romanticism - something deep, beautiful, tragic... A sea of images is drawn in the mind, and each listener will have his or her own.

"But that's when the walls went up in flames,
A quiet moan, a groan was heard in him..."

Lyrically, it is very atypical for Kornelyuk's number. And for this reason it is even more interesting to listen to him.

"Come back."

One of Igor Evgenievich's calling cards, which everyone knows!

Listeners in the comments are particularly delighted excerpted from artist:

"With a chorus like that, you could knock your breath away! And he sings quietly. That's talent!"

"Ticket to the ballet."

If you hear this song once, you're unlikely to be able to forget!

One hundred percent hit of its time! Anyone can sing it even now, which can't be said about modern "hits": they're forgotten in a day.


Here just fineThe song, the performance, and the stage presentation. Kornelyuk even umbrella I've got it all figured out! That's what we call artistry in all its glory!

"It's 2022, and we still enjoy watching Igor Kornelyuk's great hopscotch! And because there's nothing else to watch nowadays," users wrote.

"The city that doesn't exist."
