Nashe Radio plays popular music that isn’t quite “pop.” What’s big in Russian-language rock, rap, punk, R&B, and alternative? Nashe Radio’s all-Russian and eclectic playlist can tell you. Once a month, SRAS provides a snapshot of what’s at the top of their charts, with YouTube videos and links to our Russian music site.

This month, Nashe Radio has provided the top songs of 2017. Here’s how the lineup stood:

 

1. “Любовь не пропала” (“Love Is Not Lost”)—ДДТ

 

2. “Косово поле” (“Kosovo Field”)—Кипелов

 

3. “Виски” (“Whiskey”)—БИ-2 feat John Grant

 

4. “Храм” (“Temple”)—Сплин

 

5. “Любовь к полётам” (“The Love of Flying”)—Animal ДжaZ
