Inspirational Music for the Worker

Red Star of Music

Of course, L’Internationale first comes to mind and for good reason. L’Internationale, with words written by French Revolutionary Eugène Pottier and set to music written by fellow Revolutionary Pierre De Geyter (who was from Flanders), has become one of the most widely recognized songs in the world, surpassing religious songs such as Amazing Grace and Silent Night and has been translated into more than 40 languages. It reminds us that the “International Soviet” (in other words the proletariat or the working class) will be the human race.

This is the first stanza:
Arise, ye workers from your slumber,
Arise, ye prisoners of want.
For reason in revolt now thunders,
and at last ends the age of cant!
Away with all your superstitions,
Servile masses, arise, arise!
We’ll change henceforth the old tradition,
And spurn the dust to win the prize!
So comrades, come rally,
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale,
Unites the human race.
So comrades, come rally,
And the last fight let us face.
The Internationale,
Unites the human race.

Relive the glory of the USSR, with the exceptional National Anthem with words written by Soviet Sergey Mikhalkov (with help from Gabriel El-Registan) set to the great music of the Alexander Vasilyevich Alexandrov. Although the Soviet Union is gone, the anthem can still inspire us of the days of Lenin and Stalin, the dream of  United Soviet Republics.

But comrades, there are many more inspirational songs! I recommend the wonderful site, SovMusic.ru which has many workers’ songs. I hope you are inspired to continue our good work.

Forever fearless and devoted,
