Superb Military Parade in Moscow

His Majesty the King's Guard Band and Drill Team. Music "Moskau" (German for Moscow) is a single by the German pop-act Dschinghis Khan from their 1979 self-titled debut album. The song was released in Australia in 1980, the year of the 1980 Moscow Olympics. Australia's Channel 7 used the song as the theme to their television coverage of the Moscow Olympics. The song became a big hit in Australia, staying at #1 for six weeks. The song also achieved an enormous underground popularity in the Soviet Union. A 15 second clip of the song's performance was shown as a part of the New Year holiday lineup on the state-run TV, leading to the immediate dismissal of the network's director.
