Game Music Appreciation: Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Soviet March

Since my next top 5 entry is gonna take a while, here's a new feature that I'll return to whenever I need extra time: Game Music Appreciation. I plan on featuring one song in every top five entry, but some games just don't make the cut and still have great music that deserves to be heard. In this feature I'll highlight a video game song that I love from a game that I probably won't end up writing a full article about.

Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 - Soviet March

I was a pretty big fan of Red Alert 2 but by the time RA3 came out I didn't like RTSs as much as I used to, so I waited until it was cheap on Steam. What a mistake that was. Red Alert 3 quickly became one of my favorite games in the C&C series and one thing that really stood out to me was the title screen, especially the song that plays: Soviet March. I have no idea what the lyrics are since the song is in Russian and for all I know it could be horrifically anti-American since the Red Alert series is about a war between the U.S. and Russia. Regardless of that fact, it's one of the most heroic songs I've ever heard and it sets a great tone for the game.
