The songs Czechs grew up on
We can safely say that the songs you will hear today are well-known to generations of Czechs since their childhood. Everyone has watched fairy-tale movies at some point in their lives and the melodies from these films stuck in their heads forever.
Probably the best-known fairy tale musical is Šíleně Smutná princezna, or The Incredibly Sad Princess, from 1968, with two famous singers Helena Vondráčková and Václav Neckář in the lead roles. The tradition continues to this day, with popular singer Tomáš Klus recently starring (and of course singing) in the film Tři bratři or Three Brothers.
