I LOVE BELARUS! FEEL IT DEEP INSIDE!
On the subject of the Soviets, check out the frankly GENIUS entry from Belarus into this years Eurovision Song Contest. It was originally a spirit heightening national-pride-Soviet-disco-SS-club-party-anthem from Anastasia Vinnikova named “BORN IN BELORUSSIA” that came complete with a wonderful Soviet Mens Vocal choir on the track (also check out the audience member rolling her eyes at 0.33 seconds in) –
Lets ALL SING –
“BELORUSSIA! USSR time,
Belorussia! crazy and so fine,
Belorussia! got you on my mind,
Youre my passion and not a facist,
Sadly this original entry was deemed “too political” for the Eurovision Song Contest, and was sadly scrapped completely (which is a shame as I feel “Born In Belorussia” could have been an ALL TIME defining ESC moment).
The track was replaced with the similar sounding “I LOVE BELARUS”, which has a more traditional rock/dancepop feel to it, mixed with a slice of thumping traditional Belorussian flava, and a pounding chorus that basically goes “I LOVE BELARUS GOT IT DEEP INSIDE I LOVE BELARUS FEEL IT ON MY MIND” and is pretty difficult to remove from your brain –
Literally living for the ridiculous key change and POUNDING arm fist strike choreography. 12 points from my heart to the Belarus delegation for sure.
