    Various patriotic songs I enjoy listening to on occasion.

    Rock Anthem (Lubeh, Russia):

    Are there actually any other national anthems that sound totally badass when rockified?

    A Nation Once Again (The Dubliners, Ireland):

    Great antidote to euro-news.

    Bella Ciao (Manu Chao, Italy):

    Semi-Spanish version by Franco-Spanish singer.

    La chanson du départ (France):

    Old revolutionary and imperial war song.

    Vive Henri IV (France):

    Very jocular song of the old monarchy.

    Got any good ones?

    I really like this pop version of the Russian national anthem by Anita Tsoi. The photographs in the clip are good too:



    And though not strictly patriotic (it's about whiling one's time away strolling along the avenue and kissing the girls), this old song, "Along Piterskaya" (Вдоль по Питерской [Vdol' po Piterskoi]- Piterskaya being a popular name for Tverskaya St. in Moscow because it was the main route out of the city towards St. Petersburg), sung by Ekaterina Savinova, I really love, not least because Savinova greatly resembles my 12-year-old elder daughter, who also has a fantastic voice and is being seriously urged to take up a singing career:



    And having adopted Moscow as my home, Oleg Gazmanov's "Moskva!" is a favourite "local patriotic" song of mine:



    Finally, the March of the Preobrazhensky Regiment, which was disbanded in 1917 and at long last resurrected this year:

    Savinova's voice is so deep! Jars a bit with her girlie look in that clip. Tsoy's pop version is a mellow twist.
