Songs of longing (homeland)

Many of us left homeland. Some yearn for it, some do not admit it. There are songs that seem to touch your soul when one recognizes the feeling whether openly stated or hidden inside. To the kindred souls!

Now, you have to know that for those who are from Odessa, it is not Ukraine or Russia, but Odessa is the Homeland!

Weird. I can play them normally, I'm not sure for others.

It's beautiful - is there a song link or just a poem?

It is certainly full of longing and one can interprete it as love for the home as well as lover so I gladly add it and thanks!

Longing for Cuba - Gloria Estefan, Mi Tierra from the album of the same name, happy tempo, makes you want to dance, but lyrics speak of aching longing

You really love country, don't you??!

Depends, I like all kinds of music...

Um could I ask what you mean by "longing" ? I mean does it mean when it's used here to be missing something or even someone? Or something else?

BlackSea4everBlackSea4ever    Fri, 16/11/2018 - 04:01

Yes. Longing is missing. For example, I intensely miss, long, yearn for the Black Sea.

BreezyDayBreezyDay    Fri, 16/11/2018 - 04:27

Black Sea is correct. More examples:

A newborn infant longs for it's mother's milk. The infant has a longing for the milk.

Someone in jail might long to see his family or to have a lobster dinner at a favorite restaurant.

A lover might say, "I long to see you" if their mate/partner is out of state on a business trip.

Some songs of longing for one's country are laments or lamentations and make the heart ache.

I should also add that this collection is not about missing someone, but rather your country or a place like the last song requested.

Sailor PokeMoon2Sailor PokeMoon2    Fri, 16/11/2018 - 06:32

But what if the person they are missing is at also at the place that they are missing?

IMHO, D’s collection is about nostalgia for the homelands, some of us are longing.

I suggest you listen to the songs in this collection and look at the translations to understand the meaning.
Also, you can send me a link and I will check your submission. Thanks.

Sailor PokeMoon2Sailor PokeMoon2    Fri, 16/11/2018 - 13:09

OK ok... I was just thinking about the lyrics and meaning of the song that I had in mind that's all

Sailor PokeMoon2Sailor PokeMoon2    Sat, 17/11/2018 - 00:55

Oh? The link I gave you got submitted after all? I was not sure it was going to.

She did not leave her home country voluntarily, she got kicked out and later her home country dissolved...
