"Apples in the Snow."
Song "Apples in the Snow." has become the calling card of Mikhail Muromov. This touching composition conquered the hearts of music lovers, because it touched the most secret corners of the soul... There was something in it melancholicIt made me want to get a little sad. But it wasn't depressing. It was very... beautiful... And still is to this day. For a long time, listeners wondered what the song was about. Many were sure that it was a part of a cycle of songs about Afghanistan. But Mikhail Vladimirovich dispelled that legend:
"No, this song has nothing to do with Afghanistan, so it's just a legend. In fact - I'm not sure it has any meaning myself. It's just a song. Everyone interprets it in his own way...".
To the question, loves whether he had apples, Muromov replied:
"Of course! I grew up on apples. White olive and Antonovka apples are my love! We had to buy them at the market, since we had no apples of our own. My mother begged my father to buy a dacha for a long time, but he didn't want to. Only when I became famous did her dream come true. Mom managed to harvest four crops...".
"Horses in apples"
Another song on our list is also related with apples! I wonder why these fruits were so exciting to the performers of the '80s. What was the romanticization of apples? But, in fact, songs about apples had resounding success! And the song about spotted horses performed by Viktor Saltykov - is clear proof of that!
The song was a resounding success, in large part because it was sung by Saltykov. His distinctive voice broke women's hearts and made audiences fall in love with this artist, because to throw away that unlike anything else vocals out of my head was just impossible…
"You don't marry him."
And with another very loud hit of the '80s Saltykov performed the song "You Don't Marry Him".
A rousing, incendiaryWith character and love undertones, the song was an instant success! And today its popularity continues to grow: 1.5 million views in four years - not every contemporary artist can boast such a result! Apparently, the music of the 80s will live on forever...
"Music has tied us"
A group "Mirage" even dedicated a song to the music! "Music has tied us" remains to this day the duo's most recognizable hit, and it came out back in 1988!
The performance gained traction on youtube millions of viewsthousands of "likes," and just as many admiring comments! Isn't that a sign of quality for a song? By the way: in the album version the vocal parts were sung by Margarita Sukhankina. It was nearing the end of the 1980s, and the project was going through troubled times...
"On the white blanket of January."
Sergey Vasyuta and group "Sweet Dream." performed this masterpiece hit, and in the blink of an eye it was an unstoppable success! The composition "On the white blanket of January" is relevant even today, and at that time it made a real furore...
Despite the fact that this song is well known to every domestic listener, not everyone can recall the name of her performer... Sometimes on the Internet you come across amusing discussions where this schtick is attributed and "To the Commissar."and even "Tender May."! It is known that the rights to the song have long belonged to Vasyuta, despite the fact that the author of the lyrics and arrangement is Oleg Khromov from Sweet Dreams. There was a lot of conflict over it, but the listeners certainly didn't care. Everyone was just enjoying the song!
"Brother Louie" - A well-known hit by the German duo Modern Talking! Dieter Bohlen dedicated it to the "unofficial" to the third member of the band, the sound engineer Luis Rodriguez. The song achieved great success in the charts, winning gold and platinum in various countries! And it inspired the Russian singer. Sergey Minaev on their own version of...
Minaev's version was included in a tape album "Collage." and was very popular with domestic listeners.
Even though we have enough on our list as it is. Saltykovabut what can you do if almost all of his songs 80s were the chants of their era? "White Night" was no exception...
Perhaps the most popular "White Night" ahead of the aforementioned hits. Even today it continues to attract today's listenersAnd it's hard to count the number of covers that have been made of it.
And here's the group "Tender May" gave us a hit not about the night, but about "White Rose"! By the way: the song has long been a favorite among karaoke fans...
The composition was written by Sergey Kuznetsov in a highly inebriated state. The author of such wonderful lyrics himself said that the song is not about roses, but about people who, like flowers, are easily thrown out of their lives. However, most of the listeners understood that and without his contribution. Curiously enough, at the time this folk song was recorded To Yuri ShatunovThe vocalist of the band was only 13 years…
We couldn't pass up the famous hit "American Boy"that came out of every domestic iron! The song came out at the beginning of 1990s and instantly made the band famous. "Combination". And today it remains one of the favorite ...
In those years, there was an air of perestroika. These were very troubled times, and many people-especially young people - romanticized the so-called "the American dream.": society aspired to a higher standard of living, as in the States. People were convinced that life in America was a fairy tale! They were inspired by stories and articles, by foreign music and stars... And, of course, few thought that fairy tales does not exist.
