Default Your favorite Propaganda music

What are your favorite propaganda songs from what country?

I'm particularly fond of the big, intimidating, yet cold and depressing sounds of the Soviet Union.

Of course this isn`t a real piece of propaganda music. The song was written by two Americans in 1966, but it is used to create such a chilling movie scene, that I felt moved to post it anyway :-

i quite like a lot of Communist propaganda songs in China praising Chairman Mao, whilst watching Central China Television on satellite tv

of course, i have no idea what their titles were, or who the singers are, since i'm not really that adept at reading Chinese

add to that, i don't have hanyu pinyin software on my PC, so..................

Did you know this was actually propaganda for the democrat party? Actually pretty obvious propaganda:



It did the trick for me. Music is more important than politics, so if I was American I'd vote democrats!

It is one of my favourite ever music videos for some reason.

I'm surprised you haven't mentioned Faccetta nera:



chorus:

♫ "Faccetta nera, bell'abissina..............................Little black face, beautiful Abyssinian.
Aspetta e spera che gią l'ora si avvicina!...................Wait and see the hour coming!
Quando saremo insieme a te.........................When we will be with you
noi ti daremo un'altra legge e un altro Re......................We will give you another law and another king." ♫
