Side Tracks

UK was a trio band circa 1980 featuring King Crimson vocalist John Wetton. Here's a cut from their live album cut in Japan..

And here's Pat Metheny with Anna Maria Jopek in 2002 singing about America:

The song was written by Metheny and David Bowie for the 1985 movie "The Falcon and the Snowman" about Christopher Boyce, a former altar boy employed in the defense industry who fashioned himself a freedom fighter after seeing some classified CIA documents about the Australian government, causing him to turn into a Soviet spy. Not sure the intention of the song was bi-partisan, but it certainly could be--much to the chagrin of some.
