Music Video Wednesday: Polina Gagarina, “Cuckoo”
This particular song (or this version of the song, at any rate) was commissioned for the movie Battle of Sevastopol that became a major hit earlier this year (that’s the second video below). However, given the text of the lyrics (very ably translated in the first video below), it is applicable to the current situation as well.
The singer is Polina Gagarina who, representing Russia, came took second place in the most recent Eurovision contest.
Incidentally, Battle of Sevastopol focuses on the career of Lyudmila Pavlichenko, a high-scoring Red Army sniper who participated in that battle.
