Russian composer Pakhmutova thankful to Rammstein


In the movie “The Other Side” in addition to instrumental music, there were several songs. The poet that had been invited to write lyrics for the songs in the movie was Lev Oshanin, great poet and an unsurpassed master of the song. Even then, he was a poet who was known all over the world by his “Hymn of Democratic Youth” by his song “The roads” and other songs quite magnificent. So of course it was sung in times of DDR. It’s very well known there and quite a long time it had been sung by a group Rammstein.
I am very grateful to them. Just by the standard it seems as if such song is not really their style and business.
The more pleasant to me and more dear to my heart that they sing it.
