Soviet poet, author of lyrics of many songs popular in the 1940s-1970s.

Aleksei Ivanovich Fatyanov was born on March 5, 1919 in the Maloe Petrino Village of Vyaznikovsky District (nowadays a part of Vyazniki). Starting from summer 1929 the Fatyanovs' family lived in Moscow.

He entered Aleksei Diky's Drama School at and upon graduation in 1937 was admitted to the Drama School of Actors' Troupe of the Red Army Central Theater and acted in drama performances. From 1940 he performed in the Ensemble of Oryol Military District. After the war broke, he was with his ensemble at the frontline and was wounded. After recovery from the injury he was admitted to Alexandrov Ensemble of Singing and Dancing, whence by false charge in 1943 he was shifted to a penal company of the 6th tank army; he was repeatedly wounded in battles for Hungary and was later justified.

Fatyanov was not only a poet, but also an actor and performer: he played the accordion and the piano and had a good singing voice. "The most distinctive feature of Fatyanov's talent was an unusually developed rhythm in his lyrics, as if he imposed his own rhythms on the composer..." - composer Solovev-Sedoy pointed out.

Fatyanov wrote about 30 songs for 16 films. The only lifetime edition of Fatyanov's poems "Accordion is Singing..." was published in Vladimir in 1955.

Aleksei Fatyanov passed away on November, 13th, 1959 in Moscow. He was laid to rest at the Vagankovo Cemeteryt in Moscow. Memorial plates were put on the houses in Vyazniki and Moscow, where the poet had lived.
