Who would have guessed that Boris was a fan of 1980's German New Wave? Well... me, I guess. I did write it after all.

My bad. The first song is Hanschen Klein, a nursery rhyme about a kid going on an adventure then rushing back home to his mother https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TSeWL-hXhtk. The second is 99 Luftballoons by Nena https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfPTC7-wCL8.

edit: One more thing, Boris's voice isn't nearly as high as the singers' in either of those videos.

Also, translation:
"Little Hans
went alone
out into the wide world.
Staff and hat
suit him well.
He is in good spirits.
But his mother cries so much,
for she no longer has little Hans.
Look! the child
changes his mind
and returns quickly home."

And for 99 Luftballons:

"Do you have any time for me?
Then I sing a song for you."

That is, why on earth is soemone with an Eastern Slavic (Wendish, if you prefer) name be speaking German? I say, old boy, what's up with that?
And thank you Daemon Dan for the recommendation.

That would be his Bulgarian mother's influence. Nice catch on the name. It also seemed fitting, what with one meaning of the name being 'wolf.'
