Anti-Alcohol Song (1979)

Vladimir Vysotskii.
Description: Himself a legendary drinker who would soon die from his alcoholic and other excesses, Vysotsky describes in this song the license and later regrets of a man who has succumbed to the national passion for vodka. The song evoked laughter, empathy, and maybe a trifle of envy in many listeners – those for whom the dry law would become a source of irritation.
