Even after Glasnost and Perestroika I never trusted them. They still have nukes pointed at us. Would anyone trust someone that had guns aimed at them?
I still like the song Gorky Park but it’s BS. I like Sting’s “Russians,” which is right on except that the theme was really for unilateral disarmament by the United States because we’re the good guys and more civilized, therefore we should initiate things like that.
That of course would have been suicide.
I loved “Land of Confusion” by Phil Collins. He was supposed to be mocking Ronald Reagan in the song but it backfired on him. People would cheer when they showed the Reagan puppet, especially when he put on his Superman outfit. So the backfire was to the libs chagrin and conservatives loved the song.
That kind of stuff reminds me of the Yosemite Sam cartoons when he would get frustrated and say, “Oooooooh, I HATE THAT!”
“Born in the USA” was the same thing. It was critical of the United States in Vietnam, and turned out to be a patriotic song instead. I love that stuff. It’s almost like somebody conservative saying to the libs “Thanks for the great songs, guys.”
I came to a stop light that had a long wait. And there was a middle aged woman getting into a Volkswagen bus parked by where I was waiting. She had bumper stickers and you could tell she was a liberal feminist. So I put on a CD quickly, rolled down the windows and turned up the volume.
I played part of Born a Woman by Sandy Posey and she looked pissed off.
