I just want to clear something up. I've heard that it was written by Sergei Prokofiev and Sergei Mikhalkov (the father of Nikita Mikhalkov & Andrei Konchalovski, who the imdb says wrote the lyrics). Did Prokofiev write the music? I kind of want to know, as it's probably one of my favourite pieces of Classical music (and I guess, due to its evil connotations during the Cold War [which I just missed the brunt of], it never really became a respected piece of music in North America...or maybe it did and I just wasn't paying attention). Thanks.
