– Today is the birthday of Vladimir Vysotsky. Many grew up with his songs, including me. His “Ballad of Fighting” was well known to Soviet guys, and perhaps this explains the heroism that the older generation shows at the front, when people fight to the last, – says Yan Gagin.
According to him, in this song the listener perceives the main thing for himself, depending on his age.
– As you get older, you start to hear the song in different ways and the different lines seem to be the most important. When you are young, for example, you pay more attention to the words “if you have not eaten a single piece of meat with a knife.” The youth is trying to prove that it can also be an experienced mother. And when you grow old, when the hard times have already passed, you have been in front, then most often other words seem important: “And when a wounded friend collapses nearby. And you howl at the first loss, grieving that they killed him. , not you”. Great song, I will definitely listen to it again today.
