Elon Musk Sings in Russian

in #music4 years ago

I don't know if it is known in the United States (or anywhere else in the world) that Elon Musk is a favorite and almost a cult figure for educated Russian youth. The reason is not in specific projects (which, of course, are known in Russia), but because Musk has a pronounced desire for the future - this is exactly what modern Russia lacks with its backward leadership of KGB veterans, reminiscent of the past generation of Soviet "kremlin elders".

Sympathy for Musk is added by the fact that he constantly argues on Twitter with Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Roscosmos (Russian Space Agency). As a result of these skirmishes, Rogozin always (ALWAYS) remains a fool, and that's brings a lot of lulz, just because contempt for the authorities is a long and strong tradition of educated people in Russia.

But enough prefaces.
Some geeks made a deepfake to Elon Musk, in which he sings in Russian a cult Soviet song, recorded either in 1982, or in 1983. This is a song about astronauts who travel far from Earth, but dream not about cold space, but about their house and green grass near it. However, there will be another video in which this song is performed in in English, and now let's enjoy:

And here the translation into English (if you go to YouTube, under the video you can find the full text in English and the original). But it seems to me that the song sounds better in Russian, especially when it performed by Elon Musk :)
