These sound clips of the first verse and chorus of 'The Internationale' are available with the kind permission of Alistair Hulett and copyright Alistair Hulett. They come from his 1992 album, Dance of the Underclass, which like his other albums also contains many contemporary political songs. Note that the unimpressive sound quality produced by the last two files reflects the 8kHz sampling rate used in making the files rather than the excellent quality of the original CD.
