Gorby Drops an Album

No, for serious. According to Foreign Policy Passport, Mikhail Gorbachev has a debut album.

An "anonymous British philanthropist" bought what we suppose is Mikhail Gorbachev's "debut album", Songs for Raisa, in London this week, bidding $164,940 (about £100,000) at an auction to benefit the Raisa Gorbachev Foundation.

Gorby dropped it like it's hot! And those lovely people at FP Passport via Novaya Gazeta made my day by giving us access to one of the songs. Assuming there are about 10 songs on the album, you just listened to a $16,494 song.

Good thing its a solo album, he has a rep for breaking things up.

Pirates(and)Diplomats said...

Haha, oh so true.

Hahahaha, I never thought of that. I guess Gorby is kind of the Yoko of the Beatles. How would the rest break down, I wonder? Initial thoughts:

Russia:John Lennon::
Latvia:Paul MacCartney::
Belarus:George Harrison::
Turkmenistan: Ringo Starr
