Steyn's Song of the Week

Roses of Picardy

This week's Song of the Week is one hundred years old today: that's to say, it was published by Messrs Chappell & Co of New Bond Street, London on December 4th 1916, at a price of one shilling and sixpence. And in one form or another it's been with us ever since. For the centenary of my favorite song of the Great War, we present a reprise of a special audio edition of Steyn's Song of the Week dedicated to "Roses Of Picardy" and concluding with an epic live performance by me and Monique Fauteux, in which I sing partially in French, because singing in French is something to which I'm partial. Monique has sung with everyone from Quebec's legendary progressive rock band Harmonium to the great Charles Trenet, so dueting with me is quite a comedown for her, but she's awfully sporting about it...

Make Kellogg's Gr-rr-rr-rr-rreat Again

Last weekend's Castro droologies reminded us that, for Justin Trudeau and too many others, mass-murdering dictators are kind of a turn-on, a geopolitical S&M fetish - as long as it's millions of distant, disposable Third World types making up the M end of the deal. The Spectator's Douglas Murray found himself booked to discuss the monster with his apologist Richard Gott, and got to the nub of the matter: But really all it is is that Castro himself provided a rallying point for everybody who was ...

The Donaldgänger

I mentioned yesterday that the media were still having difficulties explaining what happened on November 8th to their aghast and distraught readers. But it's getting ever more difficult to make a living arguing that Trump is Hitler: after all, every melting snowflake in every collegiate safe space can tell you that. So how about Trump is British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn?

Trump And Corbyn Have More In Common Than You Think

On the other hand:

Liberace And Donald Trump Have A Lot In Common

Does that mean Liberace and Jeremy Corbyn have a lot in common..?

A Monster and his Suck-Ups

Fidel Castro's presidential term lasted, gosh, an awfully long time, as The New York Times reminded us:

Fidel Castro had held on to power longer than any other living national leader except Queen Elizabeth II.

That's one way of putting it...

The Road to Wellville

I wrote this week about Kellogg's bizarre decision to extend the bitter political divisions of America into their breakfast cereals. Among the responses was this tweet from Don Esteban: Also good to remember that cereal was a health scam created for profit by the Kellogg brothers of Battle Creek. As it happens, I do indeed remember - because many years ago for the BBC I interviewed T Coraghessan Boyle, author of a novel on that very subject set in Battle Creek, Michigan - "The Cereal Bowl of ...

Steyn's Song of the Week

A Greasepaint Medley

In a fortnight's time, our Song of the Week department will be spawning a TV cousin, as part of the new Mark Steyn Show, which will include live musical performances of each week's song. We hope you'll tune in for this innovative evolution of one of SteynOnline's longest-running features. More details below. So I've been spending the last month or so reconnecting with some dear musical friends, in the course of which I found myself scanning the first-night reviews of the new London production ...
