Remember that video from 2000 where Robbie Williams performed a “strip tease” and started to tear his skin off too? If you do, you’re probably still scarred for life. The man behind the “Rock DJ” video, Robbie Williams, is making a comeback that may cause a lot of controversy, at least in Eastern Europe. According to several reviews, Robbie Williams’ new song, “Party Like a Russian” is an audacious take-down of Russian president, Vladimir Putin. Others may find the video simply creative and enjoyable. If you want to know how to listen to the “Party Like a Russian” mp3, or the “Party Like a Russian” download, here’s everything you need to know, plus details on the “Party Like a Russian” lyrics. Watch the video below and decide for yourself!
“Party Like a Russian” Lyrics
One of the key lines of Williams’ new song goes as follows: “It takes a certain kind of man with a certain reputation to alleviate the cash from a whole entire nation, take my loose change and build my own space station.” The singer already decided to adjust some of the lyrics to make them less offensive, but in an exclusive conversation with The Sun, Williams said, “There’s 147 million people in Russia and I don’t want to upset them in any way and I don’t know what kind of sense of humour they’ve got. I’m not making fun of anybody but I had to take a few things out just to make it more PC — and this is the PC version you’re getting.”
Going Against the Grain
Williams told The Sun that he isn’t looking to purposefully offend, but to express how Russians “are ridiculously good partiers.” He hopes the songs will stand out from the current pop stars, stating: “There doesn’t seem to be a lot of personality out there. There should be a Liam Gallagher making music and being dangerous. Everyone seems to be politicking and sticking to scripts.”
