This song might be the answer of Russians(or Soviets) to Bruce Spingsteen's song "Born in the USA" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZD4ezDbbu4

It was exactly that, yes.
I like the song's lyrics as well.

I wish there were more rock songs about the glorious Soviet times, but this is the only one I have found so far.
THere's another song by Oleg Gazmanov titled Svezhy vetr (fresh wind) in which the entire Military Choir is Oleg's back vocals.

Springsteen's 'Born in the USA', while interpreted as patriotic, was actually a critique of then contemporary American reality. Springsteen actually threatened to take legal action against the Reagan reelection campaign for its use of the song.

As I've said before on these forums, Gazmanov's a bit of an interesting guy -an opportunist, a populist, or both. He takes up a popular attitude one day and the next switches it to its opposite. 'Svezhy Veter', which EdvardK cites, is a perestroika era song about being free after years of "being blind", being told "how to walk, where to live and how to breath". In its essence its a very anti-communist song, although not the worst from the period (Igor Talkov for example being much more vehement).

Edvard, you may like Alisa. They have several songs like this. I have not posted them before because I cannot determine the exact nature of the songs, they might be a bit racist? If so, I wish it to be known that I do NOT agree with such sentiments, neither do I condone them. Anyway, here are some links... If they seem racist, let me know and I will edit/delete the url's.

There is a 2nd version of the first video with various war clips including Soviet troops in Berlin, which makes me think the band is not racist, but it always seems to come up with other videos in the suggestions sidebar that include racist imagery, which suggests that it may be racist. I think commentary by someone with a better command of Russian is required here.

2nd version I spoke of above:

Hi friends! I'm new here
.
I found your wonderful site. I am interested in your question about Alisa bands. I can tell, they are not racists. In the 80s they were playing music on the Perestroyka-theme. Then many of the so-played. Now they play patriotic themes, old Russian and old Slavic.
If you have any questions, I will be glad to answer.
With greetings from Russia
