We Will Live in Communism (1965)

Ia. Kratov-Kogan. Music: Vano Muradeli; Lyrics: Evgenii Dolmatovskii.
Description: Born in Stalin’s own hometown of Gori, Georgia, Muradeli was a committed Stalinist who suffered the ignominy of denunciation for ‘formalism’ in 1948. He recovered his status during the Khrushchev-era rehabilitations. This song reflects the optimistic prediction once that that the Soviet Union would reach Communism by 1980.
