As a girl born in 90s, I have a very different musical taste with the generation of my grandparents in general. When I was a little girl, I couldn't understand why my grandma liked those songs. However, there are some exceptions. There are some nice melodies that I like still staying in my mind. "Moscow Night" is one of them.
This is a song created by composer Vasily Solovyov-Sedoi and poet Mikhail Matusovsky in 1955, which became extremely popular in Soviet Union and won many musical awards at that time. My grandma told me when she was young, many young men would sing this song to their beloved girls to express themselves. In many young girls' minds, this was a super romantic song. There are multiple versions of this song, among which the most famous one is the accordion version. As a traditional instrument of Soviet Union, accordion is perfect choice for this Russian-style song.I can't find a good video of an accordion version, but here's video of one of my favorite singer performing this song in Russian. I think you can feel the beauty of this song by watching this.
As a learner of Ukulele, i also practiced this song with this special instrument. However, due to my poor skills, I'm still not able to play this song very well. So I find a Ukulele version from Youtube and share it with you here. Although Ukulele is not the perfect choice for this song, it can show different style.
