One Song Story: Spleen - "My Heart Stopped" (2001)
The rock group Splin has been widely known to the Russian public since May 1994. Over a long period of their career, the guys managed to create dozens of really strong and very touching songs ... The theme is still the same - the eternal lyrics about love ... And today we will recall the history of one of the group's most popular hits, namely, the history of the creation of the song "My Heart "(The composition was released in 2001, as part of the album" 25th Frame ").
The story of the song "My heart stopped"
The lines of this composition have been sounding like a romanticized anthem in the minds of millions of listeners for almost two decades ... The author of the hit, in fact - like most of the other songs of the group, is Alexander Vasilyev, the soloist and frontman of the band.
In his interview, Vasiliev said that the song "My Heart" was written by him about the beginning of a relationship with his first wife Alexandra:
“This is not some fictional story ... This is a reality that I happened to experience! We had known each other since our student years, and in the end, friendship turned into something more ... Alexandra became a muse for me ... "
And although it's hard to believe (this song has a very beautiful and romanticized story), it's true! Subsequently, the couple had a son, Leonid, and, it would seem, everything is going as well as possible! But ... apparently, over time, their once strong feelings for each other have cooled down. They've divorced…
As for the meaning of the song, it is quite clear and simple. In many ways - due to the fact that the lyrics are divided into short and easily perceptible phrases. And there is nothing tricky or strange in them ... In the song "My Heart" there are no complex comparisons and metaphors. Everything that Vasiliev sings about is very close to everyone ... For example, we don’t need to explain why coffee runs out in the morning, and why the curtains are drawn in the afternoon, and the sofa is laid out ... In his song, the leader of the group simply described how human life develops. And it's made up of little things like that.
The composition "My Heart Stopped" is truly a masterpiece. And if only because with her help, just like that, talking about his own feelings, the poet in love could touch the hearts of millions of people ...
