My Address is the Soviet Union (1972)

Samotsvety. Music: David Tukhmanov. Lyrics: V. Kharitonov
Description: This Brezhnev era pop hit combined the desire of young people to hear western-style music and the need of the authorities to have new propaganda hits. The tagline ‘My address is neither a house nor a street; my address is the Soviet Union,’ was repeated frequently and with irony as the Soviet Union fell apart in 1991.
