I've been collecting songs about Stalin in Georgian and I've managed to get my hands on three different songs from three different shellac records dated from 1936 to 1939. Unfortunately all three of these songs had the same title, "Song About Stalin", so there's no real way to differentiate between them. The quality isn't that great, but I hope I've cleaned up the audio enough for them to still be enjoyable. 0:00 სიმღერა სტალინზე #1 (Song About Stalin #1)...

In 1868, the Puerto Rican people rose up against the Spanish and declared the Republic of Puerto Rico, but the uprising was swiftly crushed.

For my return, I see it fitting to start things off with the anthem of the now-defunct socialist Dutch radio station, the VARA (Vereeniging van Arbeiders Radio Amateurs). I previously posted a video of the second stanza and chorus, which in turn I had gotten from a Kampflieder.de video before that channel was taken down. Since then I have managed to get my hands on the first and third stanzas, so I pieced them together to finally get a full version of this great anthem. Original upload date: 6...

The anthem of the former 19th of April Movement (Movimiento 19 de Abril), a left-wing guerrilla in Colombia that allied with the FARC, ELN, and others. After some major losses in the late 1980s, it laid down its weapons in 1990 to become a political party and gradually faded into obscurity. At its height, it was the second-largest guerrilla group in Colombia, only behind the FARC. Several years ago, I made a video containing the anthems of the three largest Colombian guerrillas (FARC, M-19, and...

This is the anthem of the Organisation of Solidarity with the People of Asia, Africa, and Latin America (OSPAAAL), also known as the Tricontinental. The Tricontinental is a Cuban organisation that was founded at the Tricontinental Conference in Havana in 1966. It currently publishes a magazine by the same name and used to produce records as well, of which I have only been able to find two. This recording is from one of those records. Singer: Choir of the Workers of Holguín (Coro de los...

The motivation behind this song is the fact that "human rights" was claimed to be a cornerstone of the foreign policy of the United States under their 39th president, Jimmy Carter, from 1977 to 1981. The singer points out the hypocrisy of the United States calling for "human rights" abroad while ignoring the issue of human rights at home. I transcribed this song myself by ear and I think I managed to get it all despite some initial trouble. However, feel free to correct me...

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...

For the anniversary of the Grenadian Revolution I have managed to get a hold of a song I've been looking for since I made my Grenadian Communist Music video. This song may not even exist in its entirety on the internet, because I actually only managed to get this recording by going directly to the singer himself. He was kind enough to go through the trouble of tracking it down for me. It took him a while to find this song, so my heartfelt thanks go out to Flying Turkey for providing me with...
