L'Internationale is often consideren an iconic song of the social-revolutionary movement (mainly used by communists and anarchists). This version features the complete and almost untouched text of the original song, a 6-stanzas french poem written by Eugène Pottier. The music was composed by Pierre De Geyter and this cover features vocals by Marc Ogeret.

I uploaded it not only because it was the hardest version to find, but also because I thought it was the best one by far. The Russian version has edited lyrics, advocating militarism, whereas the original is far from elusive in its contempt for national armies.

Also, please do not mention Soviet Russia or other degenerate state-capitalist dictatorships, or only with a critical spirit. I'm tired of reading "baw communists killd ppl they r dictatorz", even though I do not really consider myself a Communist (not even of the Libertarian tradition). Lenin, Stalin, Mao, and all the other bureaucratic cliques certainly were politicians at their worst, but they were not what we could call authentic "Communists". Most North Koreans don't have a clue who that Marx guy is, and it includes Party executives. Deluded psychopaths like the Khmer Rouge were even actually closer to Fascism than anything else. Emma Goldman, a prominent anarchist, was filled with hope at the beginning of the Russian Revolution, but only to be deeply disillusioned when their true aims showed up; and I bet Marx and Engels would have commited suicide at the sight of flags with Lenin, Stalin and Mao's faces alongside their own.

For the french lyrics, and a translation of them in english, go to Wikipedia. Compare it with the Russian version, and you'll qiickly understand why the Bolsheviks and other twisted f*cks claiming they were Communists are the anti-thesis of Marx and Engel's work.
