[May 23, 2017] Polina Gagarina

Quote: "The Eurovision Contest certainly is as dreadful and cheesy as ever". And her song Polina Gagarina - A Million Voices (Russia) 2015 Eurovision Song Contest did not impress me. I think Polina Gagarina is stronger in singing more serious songs such as Нет, не любил он, then Europop. But she definitely can do both -- see The winner takes it all

[Mar 23, 2017] Enough to lie, the memories are long gone

Enough to lie, the memories are long gone,
Days of the past will never more return.
Let's silence sobbing of guitar before dawn.
I want to sing and laugh, love and enjoy.
Be quiet Gypsy, enough to sing
About days poisoned by grief.
The old song will not warm me up.
Old life and lies I want to leave.
Be quiet Gypsy, don't cry my tribe,
The fiery melody will fly.
Oh, how much I'd like believe My future life won't ever pass me by.
2. Your love is gone forever. That I know.
We came together and then we parted ways.
But ,as before, I won't be weeping, no!
Because ahead are many cheery days.
Be quite Gypsy, enough to sing
About days poisoned by grief.
The old song will not warm me up.
Old life and lies I want to leave.
Be quite Gypsy, don't cry my tribe,
The fiery melody will fly.
Oh, how much I'd like believe
My future life won't ever pass me by.
