Available in Monitor Import CD titled Soviet Army Chorus & Band, produced in 1992.
A men's chorus singing a lighthearted march with a feeling of anticipation. The effect is of a powerful joy. While the song itself is quite lighthearted, the deep voiced chorus gives it its sense of power.
The power of joy to motivate action.
Used in the film 'Moscow on the Hudson' when the visiting Soviet circus visits Bloomingdales. It expresses their amazed joy at the wondrous abundance of America -- and they are GOING SHOPPING.
p> Lyrics (as translated on the CD notes and tell of a girl seeing a soldier off to his regiment.
