25 January – I love the way you shine

Who doesn’t love a good thigh-slapper of a song. It’s more than just plain old Schlager. A good old banger that will fill a dance floor, even if the lyric isn’t the most profound in the world.

A thigh-slapper with a killer stage show can be even better. Not all stage shows work, but this one does. It’s from today’s birthday girl Тіна Кароль/Tina Karol (née Тетяна Григорівна Ліберман/Tetyana Hryhorivna Liberman) and features a whole load of goings on. Maybe not as bizarre as Ukrainian songs before or since. But who can fault a great big skipping rope? There is nothing wrong with this song at all. Слава Україні!

Tina is 38 today.

З днем народження, Тіна!
