Music Advent Day 5

When Eduard Khil came to the general attention of the Internet as "the Trololo guy," I sought out some of his other stuff and found that I really liked it. It bears a strong resemblance to some of the Jewish music I've known, which makes sense; we've always cribbed from the musical styles of surrounding cultures, and my family is of Eastern European extraction.

(As a side note, this led to my only foray into Bitcoin purchasing, so I could buy all of his albums that were available on a Russian MP3 site. It was a pain in the neck—I converted from dollars into Linden Dollars into bitcoin before sending it over—and it was worth the trouble.)

Anyway, this song is probably my favorite of his.
