That sounds familiar.

So when did Russia change their national anthem — the melody, anyway — back to the old Soviet-era music? I’ve had the music bouncing around my head since the closing ceremonies of the Vancouver games and it just finally sunk in that the group from Sochi ’14 was singing to the old USSR anthem melody. Of course, the words are not the old ‘Unbreakable union of freeborn republics…‘ but if you’re old enough to remember the Cold War, it’s a tune that will indeed get your attention.
