    Soviet hymn, songs

    Post by lockie on Fri Aug 21, 2015 9:08 pm

    I didn't know that in the previous variant of the Soviet hymn there were the next words:
    Stalin has been grew us to allegiance for the nation
    He inspired us to labor and heroic deeds.



    This hymn is a very similar to Russia. (I was a very surprised when I knew abt. it).

    The first Russian national anthem was picked by Yeltsin and completely different from the former Soviet one to clearly indicate that the Soviet Union was dead, a thing of the past. But the new music was not popular with the Russian people so Putin decided to use the music of the Soviet anthem with new lyrics because that music was more rousing/inspiring and still very popular in Russia. I think it was in 1999.

    This song could be a good hymn also.
    During the whole song there is a desperate appeal to drink for anything: boldness, army, fleet, children, happiness, destiny, meeting and finally for Stalin, for Motherland. Drink to bottoms up!



    Jozef Stalin was always up for a drink.
    Speaking of mean drunks, Jozef Stalin probably holds the record of having most people killed in the history of men. Experts estimated that the Soviet leader was responsible (direct or indirect) for the death of around 40 million people. Sure the health freaks are quick to point out that this was a result of his paranoia caused by his alcohol abuse. But the fact that they say it in their own language and not in German is also thanks to alcohol. For it was vodka and some good Georgian wines that made Stalin and Churchill allies. One night of hardcore drinking between the English and Soviet leader in the end caused the downfall of the third Reich.

    Old uncle Joe as some called him during the war, did like to drink, but he also used it to gain information from people and especially from the people around him. Wink

    Just like the old WWII posters say...

    This song is a very interesting. The first part is "Marsh Aviatorov", which is Soviet. The second part is "Das Berliner Jungarbeierlied", which is Nazi. They looks pretty much similar. There are rumors that communist stolen this marsh from their friends nazist or may be vice-versa.


    And here's a separate variant:
    Soviet


    Nazi

    Lockie...  The first part is "Marsh Aviatorov", which is Soviet. The second part is "Das Berliner Jungarbeierlied", which is Nazi. They looks pretty much similar.

    There was more in common with the two party's, than there was different. Basically there were no real differences between the two party's or their policy's. Just a different flag to wave and a few words and names flip around to suit their own propaganda purposes.



    Almost forgot to add... were not their own prewar plans the pretty much the same also "Conquer Europe".  Imagine that! affraid

    To continue on the music analogy.
    Here's song with a simple content: russian president is the best all over the world, coz he is the best all over the world. There were similar texts abt. Stalin (many times) and abt. Brezhnev (not many times). So, the text sameness is not a surprise anymore. But the similarity of the music tune is more interesting.
    Let's have a look:


    And here's "Vorwärts! Vorwärts!" the hymn of the Hitlerjugend (Ein Marsch der Hitlerjugend).
