Ey Iran - Iran National Anthem Vocal

submitted by Marvin's Underground Music Ondemand on 05/04/18 1

Ey Iran (Persian: ای ایران) (Ey Iran) is a famous and popular anthem in Iran. The lyrics were written by Hossein Gol-e-Golab in 1946, the music was composed by Ruhollah Khaleghi, and it was first performed by Gholam Hossein Banan. Gol-e-Golab was inspired to write the song by patriotism. He has been quoted to have said: "In 1944, the footsteps of the invading armies in the streets were enough to rattle any patriot and inspired me to write this anthem. Professor Ruhollah Khaleghi wrote the music and despite all the political opposition, it found its way into the heart and soul of the people." Ey Iran is often mistaken for being a present or previous Iranian national anthem. It has only briefly had the de-facto national anthem status; however, it occupies a place in Iranian popular culture similar to that of Men of Harlech in Wales. It was unofficially used in the transitional period between the time of the Shah (deposed February, 1979) until the adoption of the national anthem of the Islamic Republic. Even so, today, this song is considered as an opposition song to the Islamic Republic. English translation: Oh Iran, oh bejeweled land Oh, your soil is the wellspring of the arts Far from you may the thoughts of evil be May you remain lasting and eternal Oh enemy, if you are of stone, I am of iron May my life be sacrificed for the pure soil of my motherland Since your love became my calling My thoughts are never far from you In your cause, when do our lives have value? May the land of our Iran be eternal The stones of your mountains are jewels and pearls The soil of your valleys are better than gold When could I rid my heart of your affection? Tell me, what will I do without your affection? As long as the turning of the earth and the cycling of the sky lasts The light of the Divine will always guide us Since your love became my calling My thoughts are never far from you In your cause, when do our lives have value? May the land of our Iran be eternal Iran oh my green paradise Bright is my fate because of you If fire rains on my body Other than your love I will not cherish in my heart Your water, soil and love molded my clay If your love leaves my heart it will become barren Since your love became my calling My thoughts are never far from you In your cause, when do our lives have value? May the land of our Iran be eternal
