The history of the creation of "Blue Eternity" by Muslim Magomayev

The idea to create this song arose suddenly: Magomayev was sitting with friends in one of the Baku restaurants and enjoying the views from the window. He thought for a moment and remembered how good he had been on Caspian Sea, which washes his homeland - Azerbaijan. And then he began to compose a melody. But he didn't have a pen or paper with him.

Arriving home, Magomayev rewrote everything on paper, improved it a little and decided that a great song would come out of it.

He turned to his friend Gennady Kozlovskywho was an excellent poet. Magomayev asked him to write lyrics for the song, showed him his sketches and recorded music on his tape recorder so that the poet knew how to put words on the melody.

And in general, the work of Magomayev in the 60-70s sounded from everywhere. And this applies not only to Blue Eternity, but also to his other hits:Queen of beauty», «The best city in the world"and many others...
