    Default Music and Pop Culture of the Cold War

    Here's Sting: "Russians" 1984

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=4rk78eCIx4E&feature=related

    In europe and america, theres a growing feeling of hysteria
    Conditioned to respond to all the threats
    In the rhetorical speeches of the soviets
    Mr. krushchev said we will bury you
    I dont subscribe to this point of view
    It would be such an ignorant thing to do
    If the russians love their children too

    How can I save my little boy from oppenheimers deadly toy
    There is no monopoly in common sense
    On either side of the political fence
    We share the same biology
    Regardless of ideology
    Believe me when I say to you
    I hope the russians love their children too

    There is no historical precedent
    To put the words in the mouth of the president
    Theres no such thing as a winnable war
    Its a lie that we dont believe anymore
    Mr. reagan says we will protect you
    I dont subscribe to this point of view
    Believe me when I say to you
    I hope the russians love their children too

    We share the same biology
    Regardless of ideology
    What might save us, me, and you
    Is that the russians love their children too

    Two tribes go to war?

    Personally, I couldn't give a fishes-tit for all that race-religeon-culture hate ballocks.

    Here's a typical life moulding experience I'm reminded of:

    Back in '73-'74..ish, I was home on leave in Manchester having just completed a tour in West Belfast. I sometime saw, in my local pub, a chap we all knew as Pat. Pat was a Norhtern-Irish-Catholic form West Belfast. He and I had seen each other in the pub many times before and were aware of each other. usually, we exchanged a nod accross the room as we made eye-contact when gulping down the Black-stuff. One evening we were at the piss-stones together, and got into one of those typical conversations regarding recycling the good stuff. We were pleased to discover that we had both tried the obvious method of pissing into a pint glass and drinking it down, and concurred that it had lost its flavour during processing - a bonding moment!

    Anyway, one evening I was in a pub, which I hadn't been in before, wearing a Man. U. scarf, which I had borrowed from one of my brothers. Suddenly, four Man. City fans piled into me. There I was, battling away with my back to the wall when, suddenly, as if from nowhere, Pat comes wading-in. The two of us, together, knocked seven shades out of said City supporters. Afterwards, we spent the rest of the evening singing Irish rebel songs and getting absolutely rat-arsed.

    A few days later, I saw Pat again in anohter pub. Here we go, I thought, we'll have a few bevies, go on a pub-crawl, and find another war to finish off the evening. To my surprise, Pat, came over with a drink for me, and then explained that he was sorry, but word had got about within the 'Community' that he had not only been fraternising with a Tommy, but had been teamed up with him in a brawl. he apologised again and said that he'd been warned off and that this would have to be our last drink together. Needless to say, we made a great night of it, but I haven't seen him since to this day.

    So, it's all ballocks to me. Nothing should be allowed to get in the way of a chaps fun.


    As I went home on Monday night as drunk as drunk could be,
    I saw a horse outside the door where my old horse should be.
    Well, I called me wife and I said to her: "Will you kindly tell to me
    Who owns that horse outside the door where my old horse should be?"

    "Ah, you're drunk, you're drunk, you silly old fool, still you can not see That's a lovely sow that me mother sent to me."

    Well, it's many a day I've travelled a hundred miles or more,
    But a saddle on a sow sure I never saw before. .....

    I don't know what you mean?

    Khrushchev said "we will bury you" in the early 1960s (although if memory serves correct, I believe he meant this in the connotation of economic competition and in consumer goods, not in terms of a military conflict. But his poor choice of words and bellicosity lent a certain malevolence to it).

    And I've gathered from reading interviews that Sting has used drugs, but pretty moderately when compared to other musicians of his generation as he is considered to be somewhat of a "health nut" with his yoga stuff...

    That's right.
    The Krushev mean the economic competition like he told about "Kuzkin mather" in New-York's office of UN.

    But he never did mean the USSR aimed to bury the western childrens and peoples.
    Therefore the drug addict Sting suffered from ill imagination when he wrote this song

    But his comments, along with his bellicose manner were still irresponsible for a head of state to be making, just as Reagan's joke about the "bombing beginning in 15 minutes" in the 80s was...
