Why is the song about Turkey but I hear Jewish motifs and a Jewish violin?
Bro I was playing Just dance 4 when I heard this song and I was like:
D A N C I N G L I K E A TURK (joke)
Totally ‘pendous song! But the video is hard for me to wrap my head around… especially since I grew up in the 80s! 😏🤔
What was Bactria/Is now Afghanistan/ Why the changed it I can't say/People just liked it better that way
Never liked this song until high school world history
I only here after watching episode 1 of season 1 of umbrella academy, I like the song don't know this before
Even old Thailand was once known as Siam.
And Eswatini was once called Swaziland.
The middle of the beginning sounds like the firs song of Frozen 1, Frozen Heart
