    Not only that. Most of their songs are in German actually!
    But of course we have never seen the band (even pictures, not to mention performing), because the only top level pop band giving concerts in USSR was Boney M.

    PS Not many songs from ABBA you can dance like crazy, but Boney M were in game too!

    Here is some footage of their visit


    And on the album the "Rasputin" song is played right after this one (without a pause)

    @mbk1969 It's a song about Moscow, "far away and mysterious" (as they sing) but all in all a song to promote Moscow.

    Moskau, Moskau,
    wirf die Gläser an die Wand,
    Russland ist ein schönes Land.
    (Moscow, Moscow,
    throw the glasses against the wall (1)
    Russia is a nice country.)

    (1) This phrase doesn't mean anything with riots or the like. It's more like when you party and freak out, "flipping the table" and start to "party hard". At least from what I can tell....

    Thank you. You can imagine what speculations we had about the lyrics back then.

    To throw glasses at the wall - after you drank the vodka or wine - is a tradition at the weddings and/or at any drunk gatherings just out of courage. All Slavs do that.

    Slaves or Slavs? :)
    Suppressed people or Slavonic people? ;)

    Fixed. But your question is not 100% joke, unfortunately.

    Tbh. it wasn't meant as a joke. I really didn't know that when posting and thought it was a typo. Thanks for the explanation @Size_Mick and @mbk1969 .
    And sorry to all if that came over a bit rude. ;)

    When I hit LIKE at your post I immediately saw a popup (1 new alert) and looked back at my like to check if I accidentally liked my own post ... but no ..."SerotoNiN liked your post ...." :D
