The best songs from Soviet films: part five

Hits of childhood and youth...

Top best songs from Soviet films (part 5)

Today we decided to recall the very best songs from Soviet cinema: the warmest, brightest, most memorable in the end ... In a word - the best! And it’s hard to argue with this: all these compositions personify an entire era ... Someone grew up on them, and who had a wonderful youth under these melodies ... One way or another - for every listener these songs mean something. Otherwise, they would not have had the status of "out of time". So: these are the best songs from Soviet films... Let's start!

"5 minutes" (from the movie Carnival Night)

In the legendary film "Carnival Night" there are several great songs, one of which was a composition about five minutes ... It is with this song, in fact, that the film ends. It was written in the creative duet of poet Vladimir Livshits and composer Anatoly Lepin (Anatols Liepinsh). The composition was originally conceived as a “greeting song” for the New Year for the finale of the picture ...

Rumor has it that the musicians of Rosner's orchestra, who played the song in the film, described the future hit as "old fashioned" ...

"Old piano" (from the film We are from Jazz)

This charming song was written by Mark Minkov with lyrics by Dmitry Ivanov. It became the musical highlight of the 1983 film “We are from Jazz”: the song is performed by Igor Sklyar and Olga Pirags…

“... With me, he will share both sadness and sadness,
My old tired piano…”

By the way: a lot of jazz music was used in the film, as well as archival recordings of the 20s of the last century!

“Happiness suddenly” (from the film Ivan Vasilyevich changes his profession)

This song has become a real legend… One has only to play the first chords, as it already sounds in my head:

“Suddenly, like in a fairy tale, the door creaked…”

The most interesting thing is that after a very long time, some listeners did not understand who is performing this composition? It seems that the voice is familiar, even too much! But ... in fact, it is performed by Valery Zolotukhin, who did not take part in the filming of the film. The composition sounds during a banquet in the royal chambers: according to the plot, the burglar burglar Georges Miloslavsky (Leonid Kuravlyov) sings it ...

"It's not beer that kills people" (from the movie It Can't Be)

This song from the movie "It Can't Be" is performed by Vyacheslav Innocent.

If you have ever watched this wonderful film by Gaidai, then you probably remember the lyrics of this song (especially the verse). But what's really interesting is that only 3 verses out of four sounded in the film.

“If you are mentally wounded, if trouble is with you,
You will not go to the bathhouse, you will come here.
You will breathe happily here, grunt and say: “Yes!
It's not beer that kills people, it's water that kills people!

“If you don’t have an aunt” (from the film Irony of Fate, or with light steam)

Did you know that this measured composition was based on the uncomplicated poem "Song of the Dog" by the sixties poet Alexander Yakovlevich Aronov? As Lev Simkin, a friend of the mentioned poet, said, Ryazanov found out about this work quite by accident! And so, soon the assistant director contacted the author of the poem to get approval for its use in the film. For Aronov himself, this was simply a shock: before that, if someone used his work, he never asked permission. And then ... In general - the poet also received a fee in the amount of 80 rubles (he, of course, gave the go-ahead)!

The composition was performed by Sergey Nikitin: he independently selected simple chords ...

"Song about hares" (from the film Diamond Hand)

It turns out that this song was not supposed to be included in the soundtrack of the movie "The Diamond Arm" at all ...

But she played a big role! A brilliant melody was written by the magnificent composer Alexander Zatsepin ... Subsequently, he said:

“This melody was given to me with great difficulty. There were three or four options, but everything was not right ... We needed an incendiary chorus! And so, I stand in the bathroom in the morning, shave, and then this melody began to play in my head! He wrote music, and then the poet verses ... "

“The January blizzard is ringing” (from the movie Ivan Vasilievich changes his profession)

For the first time this legendary Soviet hit sounded in the film "Ivan Vasilyevich Changes Profession" in 1973. And now, for a very long time, this composition continues to sound in the minds of domestic music lovers ... We can say that it has become the "gold standard of Soviet cinema music"!

The melody was written, and a little later, poetry. And so, before Leonid Gaidai, the question arose: who should be invited to the role of the performer? At first, the choice fell on Sofia Rotaru, but her version did not make the proper impression on the director: Gaidai decided that Rotaru's performance style did not quite fit the image of the heroine Selezneva. Then it was decided that Nina Brodskaya would perform this song!

“Song about bears” (from the film Prisoner of the Caucasus)

And this song was born in the already legendary creative duet of Alexander Zatsepin and Leonid Derbenev. For the first time she sounded in the movie "Prisoner of the Caucasus", performed by Aida Vedischeva ...

Subsequently, the singer said that the first batch of records with this composition released on Melodiya was sold in a truly stunning circulation: more than 7 million copies! So, "The Song of the Bears" made Vedischeva the first millionaire among Soviet performers ...

"Rise and shine" (from the movie Gentlemen of Fortune)

A great positive song that is very encouraging and sets you up for the best!

This hit is performed by charming Larisa Mondrus…

“Beautiful is far away” (from the movie Guest from the Future)

We can rightfully say that this is the main theme of the entire film! Just a magical melody, and incredibly beautiful words ...

There is nothing to add - it remains only to enjoy ...
