Back in the U.S.S.R.

(Working title: "I'm Backin' the U.K.")

Another superb rocker from Comrade McCartney. When first released, some left-wingers regarded this song as a crude endorsement of Communism (which, in post-Cold War hindsight, can be seen as Boris Badenov-ish malarkey). It's really just a stylish pastiche of U.S.-happy songs such as Chuck Berry's "In the U.S.A." and the Beach Boys' "California Girls" -- though it's catchy enough on its own to make you wonder if Ukraine girls really do knock you out (in the figurative, non-spy sense). Terrific.
