    Default Stranger In Moscow / Russians / Englishman In New York

    I think Michael Jackson's 1995 Stranger In Moscow song and video and the black trench coat he wore was somewhat inspired by Sting's Russians (1985), and Englishman In New York (1987). All 3 videos are in black and white as well. What do you think?

    Russians

    In Europe and America there's a growing feeling of hysteria
    Conditioned to respond to all the threats
    In the rhetorical speeches of the Soviets
    Mister Krushchev said, "We will bury you"
    I don't subscribe to this point of view
    It'd be such an ignorant thing to do
    If the Russians love their children too
    How can I save my little boy from Oppenheimer's deadly toy?
    There is no monopoly on common sense
    On either side of the political fence
    We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
    Believe me when I say to you
    I hope the Russians love their children too
    There is no historical precedent
    To put the words in the mouth of the president?
    There's no such thing as a winnable war
    It's a lie we don't believe anymore
    Mister Reagan says, "We will protect you"
    I don't subscribe to this point of view
    Believe me when I say to you
    I hope the Russians love their children too
    We share the same biology, regardless of ideology
    But what might save us, me and you
    Is if the Russians love their children too


    Englishman In New York

    I don't take coffee, I take tea, my dear
    I like my toast done on one side
    And you can hear it in my accent when I talk
    I'm an Englishman in New York
    See me walking down Fifth Avenue
    A walking cane here at my side
    I take it everywhere I walk
    I'm an Englishman in New York
    Oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
    I'm an Englishman in New York
    Oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
    I'm an Englishman in New York
    If "manners maketh man" as someone said
    He's the hero of the day
    It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
    Be yourself no matter what they say
    Oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
    I'm an Englishman in New York
    Oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien
    I'm an Englishman in New York
    Modesty, propriety can lead to notoriety
    You could end up as the only one
    Gentleness, sobriety are rare in this society
    At night a candle's brighter than the sun
    Takes more than combat gear to make a man
    Takes more than a license for a gun
    Confront your enemies, avoid them when you can
    A gentleman will walk but never run
    If "manners maketh man" as someone said
    He's the hero of the day
    It takes a man to suffer ignorance and smile
    Be yourself no matter what they say
    Be yourself no matter what they say
    Be yourself no matter what they say
    Be yourself no matter what they say (oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien)
    Be yourself no matter what they say (I'm an Englishman in New York)
    Be yourself no matter what they say (oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien)
    Be yourself no matter what they say (I'm an Englishman in New York)
    Be yourself no matter what they say (oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien)
    Be yourself no matter what they say (I'm an Englishman in New York)
    Be yourself no matter what they say (oh, I'm an alien, I'm a legal alien)
    Be yourself no matter what they say (I'm an Englishman in New York)
    Be yourself no matter what they say


    Stranger In Moscow

    I was wandering in the rain
    Mask of life, feelin' insane
    Swift and sudden fall from grace
    Sunny days seem far away
    Kremlin's shadow belittlin' me
    Stalin's tomb won't let me be
    On and on and on it came
    Wish the rain would just let me
    How does it feel? (How does it feel?)
    How does it feel?
    How does it feel?
    When you're alone
    And you're cold inside?
    Here abandoned in my fame
    Armageddon of the brain
    KGB was doggin' me
    Take my name and just let me be
    Then a beggar boy called my name
    Happy days will drown the pain
    On and on and on it came
    And again, and again, and again
    Take my name and just let me be
    How does it feel? (How does it feel?)
    How does it feel?
    How does it feel?
    How does it feel?
    How does it feel? (How does it feel? Now)
    How does it feel?
    How does it feel?
    When you're alone
    And you're cold inside?
    How does it feel? (How does it feel?)
    How does it feel?
    How does it feel?
    How does it feel?
    How does it feel? (How does it feel? Now)
    How does it feel?
    How does it feel?
    When you're alone
    And you're cold inside?
    Like a stranger in Moscow (Lord have mercy)
    Like a stranger in Moscow (Lord have mercy)
    We're talkin' danger
    We're talkin' danger, baby
    Like a stranger in Moscow
    We're talkin' danger
    We're talkin' danger, baby
    Like a stranger in Moscow
    I'm livin' lonely
    I'm livin' lonely, baby
    Stranger in Moscow
