Russian Artists (meaning they sing mainly in Russian) in this Collection:

Female Artists:

Male Artists:

Note: This is a collection of songs I personally found nice and is no way an official playlist.

What spirit? What does that have to do with anything? I just made a collection which I'm going to keep adding songs that I find in Russian to that are nice (in my opinion). There are more I know but there is no point since you can filter all russian songs anyways on the main page search. It's just a playlist you don't have to use it if you don't want but sure i'll add your song if it's a legit music video associated to it as well (i.e not a cover or something) but yours is a cover. If you have any other popular Russian singers please suggest and i'll be more than happy to add.

Ok, calm down. Just state that you don’t accept suggestions

Err... Wouldn't this collection eventually look like this?
That makes quite a lot of artists!

Read my comment to the other comment above. I said exactly this. There's no point I add all songs because you can do that in what you linked already. I'm adding songs i like that are modern-ish like pop songs or folk-pop because a lot of time on youtube if you search Russian songs you arrive at techno mixes and old old songs. Thats why i have playlists for different languages. They are suggestions for nice songs if you want some just for easy listening. Btw i constantly update these so if there isn't enough i will add. If you want to suggest i found nice songs because others suggested in similar playlists so be my guest.

OMG - and with this attitude you want to be a mod?

Are you ok? Please go act rudely with someone else. I made a perfectly normal comment. You come on here speaking like this it looks bad on you not me. If you expect me to be a sheep and not tell you the truth that's not me. Be respectful please because i am giving you respect in how i speak. I even said if you want to suggest something i'm more than open if they are official songs. Don't be spiteful it's not nice at all. I'm being nice to if you want to discuss something i'm more than open to listening to what you have to say if you're here to make nasty comments i'll report you, simple as that.

I am sorry, but who’s rude here?

TheProteanGirl    Sun, 27/05/2018 - 06:25

You are saying

"OMG and you want to be a mod with that attitude?"

Why do you speak like this then if not to either start trouble or to try to take a shot at me for some reason? You have the right to say that to me if i said something like shut up you're stupid or something but I answered you something super normal and to the point so what attitude are you talking about? Point out one instance of me showing attitude if you please from what I said to you. I'm answering your comment to let you know what I think of what you said I meant no attitude and none was given. So why do you say that?

Well, maybe you should indicate it's your personal Russian playlist in the comments then. That would avoid awkward questions.

TheProteanGirl    Sun, 27/05/2018 - 05:50

But that's assumed? It says made by me i in no way indicated that this is official or anything there are playlists way better than mine. But no problem i can do that.

petit élève    Sun, 27/05/2018 - 05:56

If people think this is an open playlist, you might end up with hundreds of suggestions, that's what the comment might avoid.

TheProteanGirl    Sun, 27/05/2018 - 05:58

Sure you know better than me so I added it. But I love suggestions things like that keep things in check so if you have go for it.

petit élève    Sun, 27/05/2018 - 06:24

well I can suggest a couple Russian singers or band I like, if you want:

bards like Vissotsky, Tsoï or Okudzhava. St Mark has a nice collection of Russian bards

poetic bands like DDT, Akvarium (or its leader Boris Grebenshikov) , Piknik, Uma2rman, Zinovye Zverei, Nochnie Snaiperi

punk/rock like Pornofilmy, Rakoshii Neltch, Agatha Christie...

the funny yet a bit gross Sektor Gaza,

the depressive but beautiful Krematoriy,

This guy is pretty funny.

Russia has a tradition for gangster songs too. They don't sound a bit like gangsta rap though :).
You might try Aleksandr Rozenbaum to get an idea. I especially like this one (the whole Dina Vierny album is a superb collection of underground songs from the 30's to the 70's).
