Soviet March is the main theme song of Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3. Composed by James Hannigan, it was written in the style of a Red Army choir song.

The version in Red Alert 3 was performed by the Skywalker Symphony Orchestra and Choir.[1] Uprising features an alternate version of the song performed by a soprano singer that includes additional lyrics. A rendition of Soviet March also appears as an easter egg in Battlefield 4.

Lyrics

Red Alert 3

Russian Transliteration English

Наш Советский Союз покоряет
Весь мир от Европы к Неве на восток[Validation?]
Над Землёой везде будуть петь:
Столица, водка, Советский медведь наш!

Все народы здесь стояат того
Что мы все воплотили на свет
Благодарный низкий поклон
От самой могуществернной в мире!

Nash Sovetskiy Soyuz pokoryayet
Ves' mir kak ogromnyy medved' na vostoke
Nad zemloy vezde budut pet':
Stolitsa, vodka, Sovetskiy medved' nash!

Vse narody ne stoyat togo,
Chtoby my prevratili vas v pepel
Blagodarnyy nizkiy poklon,
Ot samoy mogushchestvennoy v mire!

Our Soviet Union conquers
The whole world from Europe to the Neva to the east.[Validation?]
Everywhere above the earth they will sing:
The capital, vodka, our Soviet bear!

To all those around us, it’s not worth your while
If we were to turn you to ashes.
We thank you profoundly, and bow to you deeply
From the mightiest in all the world!

Trivia

  • The song was used in the 2018 Chinese period drama Youyu Our Beloved Land (Chinese: 右玉和她的县委书记们), where it was played twice in the first episode. This intrigued and caused complaints among Chinese netizens, who wondered how a cut that included a track from a Western video game made it past state censors.[2][3]
