    The singer is Kristina Vichrova, never heard her before but you should give a listen! Great song, beautiful girl, great voice!
    YouTube

    Here is another choral version, must be a famous song! Any Russian speakers here can translate? Great song! I think I am going to try that on guitar.

    Found some more Russian music, this time a great guitarist, Sergei Orekhov, also never heard him before, he is playing a 7 string classic guitar and is one incredible guitarist.

    I got another Russian song for you, my friend:

    It's called "Gimn Sovetskogo Soyuza"

    It goes:

    Soyuz nerushimy respublik svobodnykh
    Splotila naveki velikaya Rus'!
    Da zdravstvuyet sozdanny voley narodov
    Yediny, moguchy Sovetsky Soyuz!

    CHORUS:
    Slavsya, Otechestvo nashe svobodnoye,
    Druzhby narodov nadyozhny oplot!
    Partiya Lenina — sila narodnaya
    Nas k torzhestvu kommunizma vedyot!

    Skvoz' grozy siyalo nam solntse svobody,
    I Lenin veliky nam put' ozaril,
    Na pravoye delo on podnyal narody,
    Na trud i na podvigi nas vdokhnovil!

    CHORUS

    V pobede bessmertnykh idey kommunizma
    My vidim gryadushcheye nashey strany,
    I krasnomu znameni slavnoy otchizny
    My budem vsegda bezzavetno verny!

    CHORUS

    A song about a spacecraft?

    How I love my stupendous Soyuz,
    Oh yes, I trust my incredible Soyuz with my life,
    When we land it is seldom with a bump,
    Oy Yez, I loves my incredulous Soyuz.

    Anyhooz, did you actually listen to those musicians? I thought they were really good.

    Yes, they were.

    And "Soyuz", although it is a Russian spacecraft, is also the Russian word for "unity" or something like that. The song I listed above was the Hymn of the USSR.

    Ah, that's a lot better than the idea of a propaganda song! So you speak Russian? What does that Oy, to ne vecher song mean, what's it about?

    I actually don't speak Russian, I just copied the Hymn of the Soviet Union lyrics from Wikipedia.
