    It seems so sad. I always died far from home!

    The secular folklore of the Russians (cossacks ?) defending for centuries their southern border from the nomads - going and coming to the North Black Sea coast.
    At the beginning of the XX-th century adapted by the communists to their ideological needs.

    IMHO

    60s psychedelic rock and folk, 70s punk, 80s post-punk, mostly. Jefferson Airplane, Bob Dylan, The Doors, The Sex Pistols, Joy Division, Bauhaus. Latin American 80s rock, definitely an emphasis on Brazilian stuff. A small amount of early 90s grunge, but nothing after 1996.

    These songs feel so close I can almost touch them. So close, but so far. Indescribable, intense feelings. I get this crushing feeling of grief knowing it's all gone and I've forgotten almost everything now, all I know is that at one point, I was there. The meaningful, life-changing memories, the funny anecdotes, memories of friends, lovers, enemies, almost all gone. I've tried, but so much of it feels like it's out of my reach for a reason. Few "coherent memories", just the warm bodily memories of cigarette smoke, city streets, acrylic paint, cassette tapes, staying up all night. We were all lonely, disillusioned, and full of rage back then (I don't know who "we" is)...there's a lot I'm thankful to be away from, but there's so much I wish I could feel and see again, just one more time. Or maybe I'm just romanticizing the past. There's one person I'm sure I knew, but I don't know him that way anymore, and maybe it's meant to be that way.

    Heart-Shaped Box is one of the weirdest ones for me. It just especially sounds like "death". Birth, but also death, birth as death, death as birth? A very final, dark, quiet feeling. Crossing the river. "The End". Not a fear of impending death, but a surreal feeling that I went there once, now I'm here. Very hard to describe.

    This song reminds me of my Ruthenia/Ukraine lives.

    It’s mostly associated with being a folk Cossack patriotic song, (“Хай живуть, живуть вічно козаки. May they live, may they live, forever the Kozaks”) and is a patriotic song about the Cossacks living forever in Kieven Rus/Ukraine, and that whoever dare threatens the Cossacks and their land, will be forever scorned upon in history.

    Хай живе, живе вільна Україні! (Khay zhyve, zhyve vil’na Ukrayina - May she live, May she live a free Ukraine - Commonly known in English as ‘Long live free Ukraine)
