GREAT Song of the Week

While combing the infotainment ultraspeedway for it’s flattened musical turds, invariably a gem or two shows up. We’ll try to keep a good supply on hand, and invite you to send your faves as well.

LENINGRAD COWBOYS: Gimme All Your Lovin’ (With the Red Army Chorus)

Something this sublime needs no comment. I first encountered the Cowboys in Finland, where they’re nothing short of national heroes. Find the Leningrad Cowboys online, hunt down the Aki Kaurismaki film Leningrad Cowboys Go America, or rent the concert video from your favorite online video rental outlet.

And yes, that is a whistling solo at about two minutes in.
