Political/Powerful Songs

These are songs that are political, or of political nature. They're very good, very powerful songs that should be recognized for their political nature. Some are not as overt nor as powerful, but their political message is still there. These are in no particular order, and yes, they also cure my depression

This song is about the Soviet-Afghan war, which I've become adament about. America really shot the Soviets in the foot which then lead to us shooting ourselves in the foot. Who would've thunk that arming terrorists to fight the Reds was a good idea?

This one is more adorable because of the broken English, yet it is just as powerful. It's Time to Run Away is political for the final stanza and the chorus, which indicates that contrary to what the song's first two stanzas imply, no, things are not so swell in the good 'ol USS of R.

Although it isn't overly political, the message is rooted in politics. That instead of getting everyone all worked up over a "common good" or a "common idea", and lighting one big fire, it's best to leave people be for the winter. That instead of burning all your firewood, you should save it. Don't lie and swindle, because when you use a lie to convince people something's for their own good, it almost always isn't.

This is the most political song I've translated, and honestly, the comments show something for it as-well. The song is about a woman who either hates the USSR, is ignorant and hates the USSR, or is just ignorant and doesn't like the USSR. Either way, she wanted to pull a Pora Bezhat' and get outta dodge, although her choices seem to not help her in the slightest

This is another political with a strong message. We're chained by one chain, related by one chain. This idea is reminiscent to Soviet ideology and this is only exacerbated by other metaphors and idioms and metaphors. Although I prefer Makarevich's 2013 remixed that is more metal, this song caputures a depressing perspective that I think the band wanted.

She Walks Through Life Smiling is extremely dark and depressing. This woman only wants happiness, but instead, she's told how to be happy. And when she goes home at night, she cries herself to sleep.

A more modern song that is just as powerful. This song asks a simple question when the world is burnt what will we remember Moscow for? And the answer isn't the nicest of memories to have.

Ah yes, this beauty. Oddly profain but just as potent as ever. Goodbye everyone is hilarious as much as it is political. Screw everything, I'm done, goodbye everyone is quite literally the message here.

This Train's on Fire is a very powerful song that makes one clever reference to the cold war in one fail swoop. Yes, this song is about the Cold War. The metaphor is that the train is society, humanity, and we're barreling down the tracks. We're not stopping, and we're afraid that we've got one final option. However, the song says that we can stop, that we don't have to resort to the final option, but we must make amends with ourselves instead of make the rash decision to end it all.

Ah what list of political songs is complete without this masterpiece? This song is special to me because if it wasn't for my high school French teacher I'd never get into Russian or French music, so no Vladimir. This song is powerful, a man doesn't want to go to war, and so he tells his president that he's a crook for deserting but he would rather be a deserter than a dead man.

Straight to the point, stone walls separate men, and that with this comes silence, silencing people from people and isolating them, alienating them. Thanks WisiGoth for suggesting this song!

I am not an atheist, not unbeliever, not a pagan...
Famous (Lebanese) artist. Wrote during civil war when people were killed or disappeared for "wrong" religion. Very timely today, 35 years after being written, as popular revolution in Lebanon targets corruption which is based on clan, sectarian and "old money" connections. I am working on a Russian translation...

Dylan's masters of war is a masterpiece https://lyricstranslate.com/en/Bob-Dylan-Master-War-lyrics.html
Let me ask you one question
Is your money that good
Will it buy you forgiveness
Do you think that it could
I think you will find
When your death takes its toll
All the money you made
Will never buy back your soul.

Я не люблю, когда стреляют в спину,
Я также против выстрелов в упор.
