indeed, jim. with laibach, quite rightly, words fail me. laughing and crying and appalled and stunned and bowled over, too. we are not worthy.
for example, to mark being the first western (sorta) rock band to ever play in north korea a couple of years ago, they decided to release and tour (in n korea) a cover album of the sound of music soundtrack interspersed with korean folk songs. obviously. as you do.
from that, here is 'my favourite things' by laibach:

their sympathy for the devil is all kinds of amazing.
but also listen to 'anglia' on their album of national anthem covers ...

hey john, thanks for the memory.
this is pretty much an ultimate cover, maybe even surpassing the original. unreally heightened emotions and perspicacity.
