Michael singing! by kiz on 1 March 2003 9:44pm
Just watched a ''Full Circle'' I taped a couple of weeks ago where Michael dressed as a sailor was singing a Russian sea shanty..something along the lines of ''Poliski poli'' ! (?). anyone know if this is song is available on any format as I can't get the damn tune out of my head and I may as well know the right lyrics!!!

i liked that too. A while ago i searched on a search engine and found a midi file. It is actually spelt Polyushko-pole or Poliushko Pole (either i think, may be wrong)

...actually, the movie is on this site
Good luck on your search

It's Polyushka Polye (Song of the Plains). The Russian Red Army Choir have a CD on which they perform it along with many other great songs, forget what it's called though. I have a few mp3s though....

Wow, thanks for the info! My husband and I got obsesed with this song after seeing Full Circle. We asked a Russian friend of ours about it but since we had no idea of the spelling, she didn't recognize it. Then, when we finally got the song out of our heads, we went to see the movie "Castaway", and there it was during the opening scene! Anyway, thanks for the info. I'll have to start looking for Red Army Choir CD's. :^)

Looking on amazon.co.uk last night, I found 2 CD's (one a 2CD set) of songs sung by the Red Army Choir. Polyushko Polye is called O Fields, My Fields on these albums. Go to the search engine on amazon and type in "Red Army Choir", I'm sure you'll find it sooner or later! Looking a little further afield I found out that this is a traditional Russian Folk song originally sung by Russian Gypsies.

Theres another thread somewhere on this site, entitled "Polyuska Polye" where I mentioned the link to the lyrics to this song, unfortunately the lyrics were only translated fully into German on the site the link led to. I posted the link there last summer so its not that long ago.

The song details the retreat of the enemy army, leaving a cloud of dust, apparently. It was originally used by the White Army, but appears to have crossed sides. It's also been translated as 'Song of the Steppes' and 'Meadowlands'. I play it on my domra (sister instrument of the balalaika)!
