Life Imitating Art

Yesterday's New York Times "Bush and Koizumi Sing Diplomatic Duet" describes how the Japanese Prime Minister tinkled the ivories and sang these classic lines to the Chief Executive: "I want you. I need you. I love you." According to the First Lady, the two men also sang a duet. The article reported that the "love-fest" included the having the Bushes give "the Elvis-loving prime minister a refurbished 1954 jukebox that includes 25 songs by his favorite singer."

Those who have seen digital rights advocate and Stanford law professor Lawrence Lessig speak in recent years have likely seen the Bush/Blair duet to "Endless Love" that is composed of artfully edited news clips and lip synch. Check out a more recent remix of the Anglo-American political pair singing the Electric Six Tune "At the Gay Bar."
