Soviet Dad-dissing

September 15th, 2010  |  by  |  Published in Uncategorized

Let there always be sunshine: That’s the title of this intensely weird Soviet kid-choir video, which, just like Eduard Hill’s Tro-Lo-Lo, makes me quite glad we won the cold war.

One thing that our Russky readers might notice: the chorus totally leaves dads out.

There will always be sunshine
There will always be clouds
There will always be mama
There will always be me

I guess with so many dads either lost in the war or sent to gulags, or (in the later years) off driving taxis for hard currency, it’s natural to just write them out of the Soviet household. But still. Soviet dads did their thing. Give them their respect.
