They can be funny songs, or serious songs, or weird songs. Just post a link to a song or two to describe some of the world's most famous or infamous leaders. :king: :queen:

Image


Kim Yo Jong. sister of North Korean dictator Kim Jung Un, most powerful woman in North Korea and second most powerful political figure in her country next to her brother. Not to mention totally psychotic murderous whackjob and possibly her brother's successor.

Song: Berceuse from the video game Resident Evil: Code Veronica

"There was a friendly but naive king who wed a very nasty queen. The king was loved but... the queen was feared. Till one day strolling in his court an arrow pierced the kind king's heart. He lost his life and... his lady love."

Here's a perfect Game of Thrones fan song for Donald Trump. "Only Us". He and his whole family are total Lannisters. :lol:

A song about a certain Russian leader. The Old Man is Stalin; the Old Man being back again is Khrushchev showing his true colors; now another Russian despot has made the song relevant.


Applies to most politicians:


"Standing above the crowd/He had a voice that was strong and loud/And I swallowed his façade 'cause I'm so/Eager to identify with/Someone above the crowd/Someone who seems to feel the same/Someone prepared to lead the way and/Someone who would die for me/Will you?/Will you now?/Would you die for me?/Don't you f***ing lie."

The singing and parading Hyenas in this Lion King video are a dead ringer for Trump's ever growing army of MAGAs.

"It's great that we'll soon be comnected to a king who'll be all-time adored!

This music video is how I picture in my head the eventual war to come between The USA and China breaking out.


The USA would suffer a fate like King's Landing and Xi Jinping would be riding a giant dragon ready to roast every American too.

For either Putin, or Kim Jong Un, they both can sub their own names in for "Ole King Louie".

Roger Waters' wit when he's focused.

"Elizabeth's lullaby"

For the late Queen Elizabeth II who was beloved by (most) of her British subjects.

(This song was actually about Elizabeth I of House Tudor though)

:heart: :queen: :heart:

For Nancy Pelosi, and for a number of other politicians also pushing 80- who might consider following her lead and ALSO retiring like both Trump and Biden...here it is.

The traditional song you play at every retirement party for the boss. Made famous by Sinatra, but...other folks have also done interesting versions of it.
