Jewish Komsomol Song

Women’s Vocal Ensemble. Music: Isaak Dunaevskii. Lyrics: Mikhail Volzhenin
Description: The theme song of the movie ‘Seekers of Happiness,’ with music by Isaak Dunaevskii, was purported to be an embodiment of the contemporary Soviet-Jewish spirit. Its merry melody swept the hearts of Soviet listeners, but it owed more to Soviet popular music and operettas than to Yiddish culture.
