A few days ago I posted Trololo, a seemingly-daffy little number sung for 2 1/2 minutes by a helmet-haired, smiling goof of a man, a song with no words whatever.  Apparently, while it strikes us as…let’s be charitable here, “odd”…it’s not that unusual a thing, at least if you lived in the USSR in the 1960s.

It’s a Soviet Thing

Then again, if you lived in the USSR in the 1960s, neighbors suddenly disappearing wasn’t that an unusual thing, either.

    I had heard elsewhere that the original lyrics were about a cowboy and his wife but were censored, but writing the song to be sung without words makes a little more sense.
