DARK SCHEMES (RUSSIAN HACKING): Red Army Choir Sings "Dark Eyes" (Ochi Chornye)

Post #169
Political parody
ORIGINAL SONG (music): "Ochi Chornye (Dark Eyes)", poem written in Russian by Ukrainian poet Hrebinka in 1843, set to music in 1884; recorded by Al Jolson, Django Reinhart, Louis Armstrong, Red Army Chorus, Fyodor Chaliapin, Ivan Rebroff etc.
PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, January 2018.

SONGLINK: The same original song was used some time ago as the musical base for "PARODYSITISM", a bit of puffery in which the lyrics for an original song are substituted into a second song's tune. See post #74, "Ochi Chornye (Brown-Eyed Girl)" from 2015.
