Well, "Smokie" didn't ring a bell... until I read the article and saw "Living Next Door to Alice" - oh yeah, I remember that song! Among the many earworms collected in a mid-Seventies childhood. - But I've never heard it in Russia.

Thanks for linking, mandelstam13. I laughed at "What Can I Do" = "Vodku naidu" :D

(And they didn't mention ABBA?!)
