All right, so Matt voted that I write Bogdanov a campaign song, but it pretty quickly morphed into a lounge number. I sang myself hoarse rehearsing to get the balance right, then thought, "screw it, this is time sensitive!" I don't have a convenient excuse for the piano.
In honor of today's Russian presidential election, I give you: "Bogdanov (Government Chooses You!)"
You're a mystery man, Bogdanov;
All we know is, you like fishin'
Rumor says the Kremlin's backing you
To split the opposition
Though we'd like to think Dimitri
Has a more refined M.O.
The present culture needs no Petri Dish
For discontent to grow
You can't circumvent this simple truth,
No matter what you do:
In Vladimir's Russia,
Government Chooses You!( More versesCollapse )
