Peter Nalitch & Friends

 
This year Russia picked an artist who became famous over night on YouTube to represent them. It's Peter Nalitch with Yura Kostenko, Sergey Sokolov, Kostya Shvetsov, Dima Simonov and Denis Marinkin who will take the stage in Oslo with a new style of music, called Jolly Babury.  
 


Peter Nalitch has become famous after he published a music video on YouTube which he made himself for the song Guitar. In about a month after he did it, 70,000 persons had already watched it. The Russian users of LiveJournal were sending each other the link to the song and the number of views was increasing by thousand every day. That brought him into fame all over Russia. 

After his first very popular concert, Peter gathered a grouped of musicians  with whom he gave two more concerts in the winter of 2008 and took the name MKPN. 

In the following summer they went to support the Russian sport teams at the UEFA European Cup and the Olympic Games 2008 in Beijing.  That was followed by releasing an album and also the DVD of their Moscow concerts, making them established artists.


Lyrics of Lost And Forgotten

Would you believe
Lord of mercy
would you be... saa... Lord-Lord

I wanna love her now
And i wanna fill that now...
All of those kisses and sweet embraces

Here am I, lost and forgotten
For this cruel-cruel time when I'm first time in love
Now that is why I say Lord of mercy
And i hope now that you here me
Oh yeah...

- what are you doing man?
- I'm looking at her fotos, what should I do with them
- drop them into the fire
- oh yeah, I gonna burn 'em now
Cause I have to forget you now
As all, as all those kisses and sweet embrases

Here am I, lost and forgotten
For this cruel-cruel time when I'm first time in love
Now that is why i say Lord of mercy
And i hope now that you here me

Oh bring her back to me!
