Bleu - Birthday Song for Mara

Some months ago there was a crowd funding campaign by the website kickstarter.com from Bleu.
I decided to give some money for this great project - with the benefit of getting a birthday song for my then new born daughter.
By the time of her birth there was a song and video surrounding us in these exciting days: A song by Eduard Khil.
You don't know him? He is now 75. And has become a star - 30 years after his actual performance. The Russian sang a song without words (because of the soviet censorship).
Until today the video has been watched for more than 8 million times. There exist several remixes, an iPhone-App and much more.

Here is the original song:

So... and here is the b-day song from Bleu for Mara:

Mara and her parents liked it a lot (she likes to dance to it :-)

I created a little collection of songs around this tune (it's a kind of mix tape or personal best of):
