Unfortunately the audio was a bit cut up, but I think I pieced it together decently.

Another popular song from the Mongolian Revolution. Still used as a military march in modern-day Mongolia without lyrics under the name "The Banner March" (Тугийн Марш).

The available recording of this song on YouTube is incomplete, missing the second stanza and the very end of the final one. In addition, the pitch of that recording is unusually high. Here is the full version with the correct pitch. Year recorded: 1945 Lyricist: Johannes Semper Composer: Gustav Ernesaks Year written: 1944

An old recording of the song that the modern March of the People's Liberation Army is based on. I found this recording on a sketchy Chinese site a few years ago when I was working on the 10 hour Chinese video. Strangely enough, it's a FLAC file instead of an MP3. Below you can find a comparison of the old and new lyrics in both Chinese and English. 《八路军进行曲》(1939)→《中国人民解放军进行曲》(1951) 向前!向前!向前! 我们的队伍向太阳,...

One of three popular songs from the Mongolian Revolution. Will post the other two soon. Translation note: "Banner of Revolution" is the official English name of this song. However, a more accurate translation would be something along the lines of "Banner With Brocade Letters". Lyric note: "Baron Ungern" refers to Roman von Ungern-Sternberg, a lieutenant general in the White Army who occupied Mongolia for five months before being overthrown and executed in the...

60 years ago, the Cuban revolution triumphed over imperialism. To celebrate, here you will find a Cuban revolutionary song, "March of the Guerrilla Fighter", a poem dedicated to Che Guevara, "Commander Che", and the national anthem of Cuba, "The Bayamo Anthem", performed by the Central Orchestra of the Polish People's Army. The first two tracks are already here on YouTube, but these particular recordings are from a Tricontinental record I bought a while back and...

One of the most famous songs to come out of socialist Albania. The first few bars of the song were used as the interval signal of Radio Tirana and the symbolism of the pickaxe and rifle became widespread in the country, essentially being the Albanian version of the sickle and hammer. The only version of this song available on YouTube has fairly poor sound quality, so here is a different recording with better sound. Performer: Tirana "A Pickaxe in One Hand, A Rifle in the Other"...

A song about the first communist leader of Romania from 1947 to 1965, Gheorghe Gheorghiu-Dej. Despite leading the country for nearly 20 years, he is often far overshadowed by his successor, Nicolae Ceaușescu. After Gheorghiu-Dej's death, large changes were made, with the country being renamed from the Romanian People's Republic to the Socialist Republic of Romania and the Romanian Workers' Party being renamed to the Romanian Communist Party. The internal borders of Romanian provinces were also...

I completely missed the 150th anniversary of the Cry of Lares last year, so here's a video to make up for it. For those who are unaware, the Cry of Lares (Spanish: el Grito de Lares) was the first of three major Puerto Rican uprisings against colonialism. In 1868, the Puerto Rican people rose up against the Spanish and declared the Republic of Puerto Rico, but the uprising was swiftly crushed. The island once again rose up against the Spanish in 1897 and against the Americans in 1950. Puerto...

Many of these songs were personally digitised from vinyl records by me, so if you can't find them anywhere else, then that's why. 0:00 Гимн 18 Марта (Hymn of the 18th of March) 1:31 Праздник В Париже (Holiday in Paris) 3:10 Песня Баррикад (Song of the Barricades) 4:51 Коммуна Победит (The Commune Will Win) 7:07 Мальчишки Парижской Коммуны (Children of the Paris Commune) 9:32 Мой Париж (My Paris) 11:53...
