This tune goes out to BSD Reader Jim, who wrote in recently to share his love of Russian liturgical music.  Don't wait on me Jim: "Get Lucky" as performed by the Russian police: 

Makes me long for those Red Army days of yore.  Can you really think of anything sexier than a solid line of comrades in song?  Working-Class fucking HEROES yo.  I mean check out the boy in the front row. . . the one that looks like Lenin!  Woof!  This video makes me SO wet.  Hold that note long enough boys and I might just cum:

I told you I was getting wet. . .  Socialist Realist face time to set your watch to (and then cum):

Soviet cheek à la one lucky "lady" soldier:

From the film "Tout le monde n'a pas eu la chance d'avoir des parents communistes" (Not Everybody's Lucky Enough to Have Had Communist Parents).  Keep an eye out for the flying accordion player.  Roll credits . . . on . . . "communism":

The good ole' days of yester-yore above, the sad face of Socialist Russia now:


  1. Oh, my goodness! I can't believe the MVD is so dissolute as to be celebrating a song where all its members are "waiting all night to get lucky." In the context of Russian-style policing, with rampant bribery and sexual harrassment, I can't help but think that this is a really poor choice of lyrics. A not insignificant cultural blind spot when dealing with Western pop culture. You are right, though, that this is the contemporary descendent of Soviet propaganda efforts to build nationalism and culture through institutions such as the Red Army chorus. These are really good specimens of the type of thing you would see constantly on Soviet tv, and even nowadays on more nostalgic programming.

    When I was in Russia for International Women's Day, I asked about why there was no day for men. But there is, I was told by more than one person, Veteran's Day. I was about to retort that not all men are veterans, but with a universal draft (which mostly worked under the Soviets, and is still in place, but severely broken today), nearly every adult male was a veteran. And if you want to know what else they were up to during mandated service, do some research into dedovshchina, the rule of grandfathers. I first heard about this during a sociology class in Leningrad taught by a little old lady in the period of high glasnost'. Me and the rest of the Americans in the room flipped our ushanki. The thought that homosexual activity, and in particular rape, as both victim and aggressor, were nearly universal phenomena among men in the Soviet Union, certainly gives these Red Army Chorus performances a special subtext.

  2. Talk about a Pansy Division.
