I'm dumbstruck. Speechless. (That's why I'm typing this.)
Would you believe this combination:
- A Finnish rock group calling themselves the "Leningrad Cowboys";
- Performing in a stadium in Russia before a crowd of screaming Russian teenyboppers;
- Backed by the Red Army Choir (in full uniform, with balalaikas);
- Singing Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Sweet Home Alabama" (in English)?
The mind boggles, I tell you . . .
Is this the end of Western civilization? Or Russian? Or both?
