Shoxrux — Salom

by Nathan Hamm on 5/18/2006 · 3 comments

Lyrics to the song are at Shoxrux’s website, which, by the way, has lyrics and mp3s for all of his songs.

One of the best things about this video is the creepy look on the face of the guy to the left of Sarvar at about 0:47. And also, this video teaches that Disney sheets are totally thug.

By the way, Thursday is this week’s Friday for me, so the video comes early this week.

My old host-brother goes to University with Shoxrux. OR, he would, if Shoxrux ever came to classes. Apparently the Uzbek lil Bow wow is Shoxrux’s 8 year old cousin or something. And I hear this song ALL THE TIME now. In the bazaar, on the marshrutka, and just in the streets from tape players and store stereos. And the kids love to sing it at my school. Something about that little kid singing Salom Alei, Salom Alei… everyone seems to just love it.

My own opinions on this song [and video] are a bit more mixed.

With hatred.

Wow, that’s just annoying. I made it all of 1:31 into that one.

Yeah, it gives You an impression that it is not Uzbekistan but the US.
I don’t know, it is again confirms the official policy of Tashkent, they shut out, block, DTV-ViaSat Russian channel even when they were brodcasted through the Kamalak TV a cable operator, because they showed Channel 4 documentary “Torture: Dirty Business”. While it is ok to broadcast these punks, the songs which have no connection what so ever to the reality and no social value, reminds me of Chomsky’s “Manufacturing Consent”.
