Soviet cosmonaut song – And on Mars there will be apple blossoms (English subtitles)


To live and believe is wonderful. Before us are unprecedented paths: Cosmonauts and dreamers declare That on Mars there will be apple blossoms. It’s good to have comrades with you To pass through the whole universe. The stars will meet with the flowering Earth, And on Mars there will be apple blossoms. I became a friend of distant stars, Don’t worry about me and don’t be sad. Leaving our Earth, we promised That on Mars there will be apple blossoms! Leaving our Earth, we promised That on Mars there will be apple blossoms!

  1. I guess I have found myself the honor (if it can be called that..) of having the first comment. Instead of saying something childish, I guess I will just say this;
    This is a lovely song. I'm sure the commentors after me will elect to devolve into a frenzy of polarized political rantings. "Oh, communism is so great, this song is communist!" "Capitalism is evil. If communism took the world, we'd see this come true!" But I say no, this, and many other beautiful Russian songs popular during the soviet era had nothing to do with politics. This song is almost like a prayer of hope for something glorious – to see Mars transformed into a wonderful place. A place where flowers bloom.
    Perhaps if, instead of focusing on polarities and ideologies, we thought of something like this… Well, perhaps there would be apple blossoms on Mars.

  12. It captures the beauty and mystery of space and love in my opinion. Almost like a sad love song for the future where the singer is expressing sadness that he goes to space for war, but is hopeful that the future cosmonauts will go to space to flourish. That's how I feel anyway

  13. This song is actually rather sad in the modern day. It sings of hope that we'd make it to mars and probably even further,

    And yet with all those years we're still stuck on earth and pretty much forgot about our space ambitions

  14. This and Little Star, the two best Soviet songs in existence. It hurts though, despite the songs poeticism, that the USSR wasn't around long enough to reach Mars. We know well they could have in time.

  15. On the contrary to some people here, I don't think that this song is talking about the terraformation of Mars.

  16. My gran papa always plays these songs on a record player, and he always has a sad and distant look in his eye as if he remembers somthing great and old, wise and strong, tall and proud. He was there when the union fell, and he watched it fall hard.

    He tells me Belarus was not always so bad, it was a safe place filled with laughing children, gossiping wemon, and working men. Not gangs, drug addicts, and unemployment.

    Glory to the union.

  19. I'm certain that up there,

    in the gorgeous void,

    The Communist Cosmonauts and the Capitalist Astronauts both silently agreed that the politics of the world below never fucking mattered,

    and simply basked the the positive glow of a future they could both agree was worthwhile to achieve.

    For they knew in the future; when the walls were torn down, and star-ship's were built,

    There Would finally be Apple Blossoms in the Fields of Mars.
