Terminator 2 and Frank Sinatra: these two symbolic music chosen for Navalny's funeral

Two astonishing pieces of music accompanied the funeral of Alexeï Navalny in Moscow, this Friday March 1: an extract from the final scene of the film Terminator 2, and “My Way”, by the famous American singer Frank Sinatra. A choice accepted by those close to him, and revealing the fierce fight of the main opponent of Vladimir Putin.

“Alexei thought that Terminator 2 was the best film in the world,” Kira Yarmish, the opponent’s spokesperson, wrote on funeral"

The science fiction film Terminator 2: Judgment Day, directed by James Cameron in 1991, stars Arnold Schwarzenegger as John Connor, as well as Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, his mother. The latter, human survivors of a nuclear apocalypse, join in resistance against the dictatorship of the robots. In order to eliminate John Connor, the leader of the human resistance, machines are sent into the past to kill him as a child.

Ivan Zhdanov, close to the opponent and former director of the Anti-Corruption Foundation created by Alexeï Navalny in 2011, also published a message on Telegram to evoke another piece: “The coffin was lowered into the grave to the sound of music.” My way” performed by Frank Sinatra in 1969.

The song was not chosen at random either, if you listen more closely to its words: “I have lived a full life [...] much more than that, I did it in my own way. way,” we can hear. “I have had some regrets, but once again, too few to mention. I did what I had to do,” it is also sung. Or again: "I planned each initiative, and [...] I did it my way." And even: “Yes, there were times, which you must surely have heard about, when my eyes were bigger than my stomach, but beyond all that, when there was a doubt, I didn't I took one bite and spit it out. I faced all that and I rose to the occasion.”

A way of paying a final, subtle tribute to his political struggle, during a funeral closely monitored by the Kremlin authorities.
