Hi - I didn't find what you were looking for, but I did find a wonderful Russian site - click here. It might be a good idea to ask people at that site for help. Keep checking here in this thread, and there's a good chance somebody will come up with your information. If you get it somewhere else, please post it here for us. Thanks.

Would it be the song "A Million Scarlet Roses by the Russian singer Alla Pugacheva?

This might take a while, but I have a half-Aunt who was born and raised in the USSR and now living in either North Carolina or South Carolina, USA. My mother probably has current contact information. Her father, my grandfather, was a complete convert to communism in the years following 1932 when he went there ostensibly to make a film (it fell through). He stayed in the unshakeable belief that anything was better than being black in 1930's America. (My white grandmother escaped with my mother just as Stalin was slamming the door shut.) My grandfather's other kids were raised entirely in the Russian culture. Since he was a performing artist - acting, playwriting, dancing, anything for a ruble, let's hope he knew the song you want and taught it to my (half-) Aunt.

Maybe some sort of update in a day or two. Hope so...I'm curious about this because it kind of relates to a lost part of my personal history.

Here is a lead that might help. I found it at Indiana University's Russian and Eastern European Institute (REEI) web page. There's a program open to musicians, tourists, you name it. Along with studying the language and culture, there are workshops to study song, dance etc. The person to contact for info would hopefully know who on the REEI faculty is familiar with Russian songs. The contact names are:

Dr. Marina Oborina, Academic Programs Director, and
Monica M. White, International Admissions Director, International Institute of Russian Language and Culture

OK, I'm going to try to make a link, but if it doesn't work, you can do it the "old-fashioned" way, by typing in the URL. E-mail: inforuss@postman.ru or

web page: www.volga.net or
Click here for web site

Ohio State University also seems to have Russian stuff in the calendar, but I didn't check it out.

Good luck!

Sorry, that was a waste--the URL's exist no more. Maybe you'll find someone actually at Indiana State U in the Russian and Eastern European Institute who can help you. Go to Indiana State U -- Majors and scroll down, down, down, till you get to Russian and Eastern European Institute.

I checked this URL, and it works for me.

Crowhugger, I also found the following information regarding Alla Pugachova or Pugacheva here and you might be able to ge the music here

However she seems to be straight Pop, so I am going to try to get in touch with my Russian friend to try to find out more.

Hello, this 'Milliony Alyh Roz' of Alla Pugacheva was quite popular in the SU back in the 80's. The song - if I remember correctly - was composed some twenty years ago by Latvian composer Raimondas Paulas and the lyrics are by Voznesensky whose first name escapes me now. Paulas is 'guilty' of a mighty bunch of good melodies which were recorded by many famous soviet performers. I think he lives in Latvia now and is still active.

I found this site where they claim (in Russian) to have more than 250 Alla P. song lyrics, roses included, but somehow the catalogues refuse to open from here. Anybody else manage? If not, I could type them for you.

Here is the website for Steve Wolownik, founder of the American Balalaika and Domra Association and founder of three of the best known Balalaika ensembles in the country. His e-mail address is buried in the site somewhere, and if anyone can help you, he can. Balalaika Web Site

That's a great site Joe - I hope you're going to put it in the Mudcat links.

(Incidentally - is there any way to bookmark a site on your personal page if it hasn't been put in the Mudcat links first?)

Here's what I got from Alla's singing:

(to see the Russian correctly change char set to Cyrillic Win 1251)

Миллионы алых роз
Паулс / Вознесенский

Жил был художник один домик имел и холсты
но он актрису любил, ту что любила цветы
Он тогда продал свой дом продал картины и кров
и на все денги купил целое море цветов
Миллионы миллионы миллион алых роз
из окна из окна из окна иидишь ты
кто влюблён кто влюблён кто влюбдён и всерьёз
свою жизнь для тебя превратит в цветы

Утром ты станешь у окна можешь сошла ты с ума
как продолжение сна площадь цветами полна
Похолодеет душа что за богач здесь чудит
а под окном чудь дыша бедный художник стоит
миллионы ...

Встреча была коротка в ночь её поезд увёз
но в её жизни была песня безумная роз
Прожил художник один много он бед перенёс
но в его жизни была целая площадь цветов
миллионы ...

With Latin alphabet it makes (ы=y, й=j, я=ja, ю=ju, ё=jo, ь=', х=h, щ=shch etc)

Zhil byl hudozhnik odin domik imel i holsty
no on aktrisu ljubil tu chto ljubila cvety
On togda prodal svoj dom prodal kartiny i krov
i na vse dengi kupil celoe more cvetov
Milliony milliony million alyh roz
iz okna iz okna iz okna vidish' ty
kto vljubljon kto vljubljon kto vljubljon i vserjoz
svoju zhizn dlja tebja prevratit v cvety

Utrom ty stanesh' u okna mozhesh' soshla ty s uma
kak prodolshenie sna ploshchad' cvetami polna
poholodeet dusha chto za bogach zdes' chudit
a pod oknom chud' dysha bednyj hudozhnik stoit
milliony ...

Vstrecha byla korotka v nochj ejo poezd uvjoz
no v ejo zhizni byla pesnja bezumnaja roz
Prozhil hudozhnik odin mnogo on bed perenjos
no v ego zhisni byla celaja ploshchad' cvetov
milliony ...

In English that should be about:

Once upon a time there lived an artist, he had a small house and he had linen
but he loved an actress, the one who loved flowers
then he sold out his house and pictures and his roof
and with all the money bought a whole sea of flowers
millions of millions of million scarlet roses
through the window you see
who's in love and serious
will turn his life into flowers for your sake

In the morning you'll be standing at the window, you might go out of your mind
the square, as if you're still dreaming, is full of flowers
your heart freezes, what rich man's joke is this
but under the window, hardly breathing, stands the poor artist
millions ...

The rendezvous was brief, the train took her away that night
but now in her life she had the insane song of roses
the artist continued living alone, he had hard times to bear
but in his life there was now a whole square(full) of flowers
millions ...
