from the Airwolf Extended Themes soundtrack 2CD
|Airwolf's 1st season episode PROOF THROUGH THE NIGHT's most iconic theme is probably the Russian folk piece 'Poljuško Polje' both played on a balalaika and sung by Rostoff's brother-in-law Ivan Turgyev (played by actor, RADU GAVOR) and later the young Tanya Rostoff (played forlornly by actress, LINDA GROVENOR) at Hawke's cabin, accompanied by Hawke on the Stadivarius cello and then the full orchestra. There was an interesting scene in the script that was (probably shot but) left out of the final edit where both Rostoff and his wife came out on the porch and joined in the singing as well, but it was felt that the freeze frame on Hawke was more relevant to Hawke's story arc and journey over the season.|
Poljuško Polje Sing-A-Long Lyrics
Yedut, ey, po polyu gyeroyi,
ey, da ruskoi armiyi gyeroyi.
dyevushkam sivodnya grustno:
Milý da v armiyu uyekhal,
ey, da milý v armiyu uyekhal.
dyevushki, utritye slyozý!
Pust' po silnyeye grianyem pyesnyu,
ey, da nasha pyesnya boyevaya.
Tol'ko mý vidyim,
vidyim mý syeduyu tutshu:
Vrazhya da sila iz za lyesa,
ey, da vrazhya sila slovno tutsha
English translation of Poljuško Polje
The heroes ride over the field,
Hey, the heroes of the Red Army.
The girls are crying,
The girls are sorrowful today,
Their sweethearts went away for a long time,
Hey, their sweethearts went away to the army.
You girls, cast a glance,
cast a glance in our direction,
Wave far down the road,
Ey, the happy road.
We only see
We see a grey mist,
The hate of the enemy behind the forest,
Hey, the enemy's hate, like a mist.
Hey, girls, look,
We are ready to engage the enemy,
Our horses are fleet-footed,
Our tanks are fast-driving.
Hey, while on the collective farms,
The work is efficiently progressing,
Today we are watchmen,
Today we are keeping watch.
The ECHOS FROM THE PAST Cabin epilogue theme will be next up very soon.
