A Calming Musical Interlude #6 – An Ode to #DonaldTrump

This is great; discovered a song released in August last year, an ode (some might call it a ‘paradiddle’) to Donald Trump, called ‘a terrible shame‘, by the band from Wales called Christian Fitness.

There’s also a cameo from a wind turbine behind the … Continue reading A Calming Musical Interlude #4
