The Ghost of Snapped Shot

Or, welcome to my low-maintenance heck.

Musical Interlude

I've been playing quite a bit of GTA4 lately, which has reminded me of one of my favorite new-Russian rock bands, the Ranetki girls.

Last we discussed them, they were rocking around Moscow, barely out of high school. It seems that since then, they've released a couple of new albums -- the the latest of which is currently rocking my socks off.

So, since I'm otherwise tied up for the afternoon, I figure now's a good time to share one of their awesome new songs -- Champions of Love:

The good news is that since it's in Russian, and my Russian is famously bad, so I have no idea what they're talking about (other than the Google Auto-Translation, which is pretty amusing in and of itself).

But hey, I'm all about sharing the fun, so feel free to browse both beyond the fold.


The lyrics, courtesy some site that will probably give you a virus (not to mention the pile of distastefully NSFW banners). The horridly literal transliterations in italics are mine, sadly.



Делай за меня, все что хочется,
Delai za menya, vse chto hochet' 

И не думай, что когда-нибудь кончится.
I ne dumai, chto kogda-nibud' konchitsa. 

Все что про любовь - это вечное
Vse chto pro lobov' - eto vechnoi 

Неизменно и не кем не замечено.
Neizmenno i ne kem ne zamecheno 

Где есть радуга - не разгадана
Gdye est' raduga - ne razgadana

Мы бежим туда, значит так надо нам,
Mui bezhim tuda, zanchit tak nado nam, 

А награда, что мы ещё не знаем!
A nagrada, chto mui eshe ne znaem! 

 

Припев:
Ведь мы с тобою чемпионы любви,
Ved' mui s toboi chempion lub'i, 

И мы с тобою в этом мире одни.
I mui s toboi v etom mire odin. 

Далеко, далеко от других, чтоб никто не смог узнать!
Daleko, daleko ot drugih, chtob nikto ne smog uznat'! 

И мы с тобою в этом мире одни,
I mui s toboi v etom mire odin, 

Ведь мы с тобою чемпионы любви.
Ved' mui s toboi chempion lub'i. 

Никогда, никогда, никогда - никому нас не догнать.
Nikogda, nikogda, nikogda - nikomu nas ne dognat'. 

 

Что не сказано, то не сделано,
Chto ne skazai, to se sdelano,

Это ясно всем, как чёрным по белому.
Eto yasno vsem, kak chernim no belomu. 

Не разгадано, не проверено,
Ne razgadano, ne provereno. 

Но стоять на месте так не сумели мы
No stoyat' na meste tak ne sumeli mui 

Раз и навсегда, это может быть,
Raz i navesegda, eto mozhet buit', 

Невозможно одному море переплыть
Nevozmozhno odnomu more pereplit' 

Будет берег, но мы ещё не знаем.
Budet bereg, no mui eshe ne znaem. 

 

Припев:
Ведь мы с тобою чемпионы любви,
Ved' mui s toboi chempion lub'i, 

И мы с тобою в этом мире одни.
I mui s toboi v etom mire odin. 

Далеко, далеко от других, чтоб никто не смог узнать!
Daleko, daleko, ot drugih, chtob nikto ne smog uznat'! 

И мы с тобою в этом мире одни,
I mui s toboi v etom mire odin, 

Ведь мы с тобою чемпионы любви.
Ved' mui s toboi chempion lub'i. 

Никогда, никогда, никогда - никому нас не догнать
Nikogda, nikogda, nikogda - nukomu nas ne dognat'



Whew. Мои русски ето ни хорошо.

According to Google, the song's definitely a bit... "Girly," to say the least. I'll do my best to get an official translation from my usual sources later, of course.

Do me, all he wantsAnd do not think that ever would be.
All about love - the eternal
Invariably, and not anyone else noticed.
Where there is a rainbow - not solved
We run there, then so should we,
And it's that we still do not know!

Chorus:
After all, we are the champions you love
And we are with you in this world alone.
Far, far away from the others, so no one could know!
And we are with you in this world alone,
After all, we are the champions of love with you.
Never, never, never - we did not catch anyone.

What is not mentioned, it is not done,
It is clear to all as black and white.
Do not guess, not tested,
But to stand still so we were unable
Once and for all, it can be
Unable to cross the sea to one
Will the shore, but we still do not know.

Chorus:
After all, we are the champions you love
And we are with you in this world alone.
Far, far away from the others, so no one could know!
And we are with you in this world alone,
After all, we are the champions of love with you.
Never, never, never - we did not catch anyone
Ah well, at least it's catchy. I guarantee you'll be humming it for the rest of the day (just like I am right now).
