Black ravens and angels of death

Post  pinhedz on Mon Jun 20, 2011 6:46 am

I remember Rhone was interested in this song--it goes something like this:

"Black raven, why do you circle
up above my head?
This is not the day that you will eat my eyes,
Black raven, I don't belong to you."

"Why do you open your talons
Up above my head?
I am not your prey,
I do not belong to you."

"I'm binding a mortal wound,
Take a message to my mother,
Tell her I dies for my homeland,
Give this bloody bandana to her."

"Take a message to by beloved,
Tell her not to wait for me,
Tell her that she is free,
Tell her I have married another."

"A swift arrow has taken my life
On an open barren field,
My bride is the angel of death,
Black raven, now I am yours."

I believe the song was composed just for this old movie (at 1:10, Chapayev interrupts the song to mutter that he's way low on ammo):

This guy does a fantastic job with the Black Raven song, even though he's not Russian. Shocked

All the Russians leaving comments on youtube love it.

Watch for the puddy tat at the end:

I'd say this video was better in concept than in execution (for starters, they should have picked a better rendition of the song):

A different black raven song in two very fine renditions:

There used to be good posters of this movie, but I can't find them anymore.

Anyways, the hero dies, and the handsome young lad dies also:



The pretty young girl lives:



It's not in the movie, but eventually that girl will have a job sitting at a bare table in the entryway of an apartment building with a gray scarf tied under her chin.

Her job is to scowl at all the residents who bring their dates home, and inform them that all guests must be out of the rooms by 11:00 pm (they won't be).

One time from out in the hallway I heard her pacing back and forth and muttering to herself: "I'm 48 years old. Oh God, I'm 48 years old."
