Sunday music: It’s like that

I stumbled on this over at Dark Roasted Blend. It has a special appeal as we get emails from our son who’s in Belarus on business, filling us in on what life is like in that former Soviet country. (I’m hoping he can check out the botanical garden for me.) Anyone have suggestions for what to see and do while in Minsk?

If you don’t remember the ‘original’ video (if I got it right, a 1998 remixed version of Run DMC’s 1983 groundbreaking hiphop hit), it’s eerily similar, only the breakdancers aren’t near as good. And there’s quite a good message in the lyrics, if you listen.

  1. Lesson 1 of globalization: We are more alike than we are different. And if stuff like this doesn’t prove that, I don’t know what does.
