Young Communists Music

Komsomol March (1936)
Red Army Chorus. Music: A. Aleksandrov; Lyrics: S. Alymov
Description: This highly militaristic song reflected the new agenda of the Stalin era, in which the Komsomol was no longer an independent force in Soviet politics, but the training ground for military and state workers devoted to the platform of the central party organs.

Komsomol Farewell Song (1935)
Music: Dm. Pokrass. Lyrics: Mikhail Isakovskii
Description: This song, a variation on ‘Farewell,’ a favorite Komsomol song in the 1920s, went on to be a big hit in the later 1930s.
