    It's the same anthem essentially, so I liked it when it was the Damn Commie Anthem and I like it now when it's the Russian Anthem.
    Hmm.. Perhaps.

    The difference between the Soviet anthem and the Russian Anthem (or whatever they're called) is Destalinization. They took out the crap about the crazy communist, and replaced it with sexiness befitting a real bear of a Russian, like Putin for example.

    Agreed. ATB is MUCH better than the SSB. MUCH!

    Prejean/Palin ?
    This may be a good poll
    Are the Republicans that far "gone"??
    I like Prejean, her treatment was not kind.
    We need much more kindness, civility, tolerance in our nation.

    What is your thought when you hear it?
    Meh, it's OK. Certainly better than the American national anthem...but then again, what isn't. My favorite national anthems are O Canada and Le Marseillaise.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.
    What?

    Silly. Maximums of silliness. How not knowing the words, less cultural background one can judge from a poor perfomance?

    But it was well played by the band.


    Let me try to bring it to you slowly, very slowly.

    all way down to your level, translating into Amercan

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pHtZ0nzzPQM"]YouTube- Russian Anthem-Rock Version[/ame]

    you play guitar, dont you, you can make out tabs
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoGcRkno0Bg&feature=related"]YouTube- Гимн *оссии (ССС*), на двух гитарах[/ame]

    now less the band:
    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbjQeW8KRn0&feature=related"]YouTube- Russian Anthem, Гимн *оссии, Military Parade 2007[/ame]



    Now you see what sounds as a bunch of incongruent notes may be very congruent and coherent for another ear, another culture.

    Though I wouldnt know how to translate this for you:
