What song do the Soviet sailors sing in "The Hunt for Red October"?

In the movie, Sean Connery, er, Capt. Ramius gives a rousing speech and the sailors all resume their duties with renewed determination. What song do they sing? Anyone have a link to a performance of it (need not be the actual movie version)?

I should add, I already checked IMBD.com, and it doesn't mention the name of the song in the "Trivia" section.

When I read this title, I wondered if you were talking about "It's a Long Way to Tipperary" in the film Das Boot.

Unfortunatly the song played over the opening credits apparently isn't a real soviet song, but created for the film.

According to the movie's soundtrack, the title song is called "Hymn to Red October."

It's the Soviet national anthem. Lyrics translate as follows -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_...PSU_version.29:

Quote:
Unbreakable Union of freeborn Republics,
Great Russia has welded forever to stand.
Created in struggle by will of the people,
United and mighty, our Soviet land!
CHORUS:
Sing to the Motherland, home of the free,
Bulwark of peoples in brotherhood strong.
O Party of Lenin, the strength of the people,
To Communism's triumph lead us on!
Through tempests the sunrays of freedom have cheered us,
Along the new path where great Lenin did lead.
To a righteous cause he raised up the peoples,
Inspired them to labour and valourous deed.
CHORUS
In the vict'ry of Communism's deathless ideal,
We see the future of our dear land.
And to her fluttering scarlet banner,
Selflessly true we always shall stand!
CHORUS

Well, there's a song (played during the de-boating scene for instance) that is not the Soviet National Anthem. I don't know what it's called but the lyric "Da svedanya, Rodina" can be clearly heard, which means "Goodbye Motherland*." Quite fitting for a defection scene.

That's the one. However, from what I've been able to find out, that song was created for the film. Too bad, since I do rather like it.

And I'd be happy to be proved wrong.

Written by Basil Poledourus, who also wrote the score for Red Dawn, Free Willy, and Conan the Barbarian. http://kerzap.com/hfro/music.html And here's the lyrics (in Russian, transliterated into Roman letters): http://filmtracks.com/comments/t...dex.cgi?read=2

But the song the soldiers sang on the bridge was the Soviet national anthem, I'm pretty sure. I've heard it before and recognize the melody.

BTW, the present Russian national anthem uses the same tune as the Soviet one, with different lyrics. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_national_anthem

Thanks, everybody. I now see that Amazon.com has excerpts from the THFRO soundtrack (although several customers complain that the soundtrack album leaves out a lot of good stuff):
