A dear friend had expressed his admiration for the Choir of the Red Army, so I listened to a few of their songs, russian like the Kremlin itself. But I couldn't shake off the unpleasant feeling that this lofty beauty was fake and false, had always been like make-up on the monstreous face of dictatorship. So I looked again to the beginning of Michael Radford's adaptation of Orwell's "1984", where we hear an equally lofty sound in the anthem of Oceania. And the present? Believe it or not but I always liked the raw music of Rammstein, combined here with a tender touch (it's not t.A.T.u., though it sounds like them). Moskau today, dragging with it its horrible past... Here are three vids from what I felt like a moving journey.
YouTube - 1984 ~~ Part : 01 of 12
The 1984 anthem reminds me of The Hills are Alive with the Sound of Music or something from that era.
