In the greatest convergence of popular music and prime ministering since Britain's Gordon Brown proclaimed Arctic Monkeys to be his favourite band despite never having heard their music, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper bumped his approval rating several percentage points with a performance of the Fab Four's 'With A Little Help Of My Friends' alongside cellist Yo Yo Ma at a concert in Ottawa.

I wonder how long he was badgered to go through with this.
Cover was great, I love how the audience laughs at him when he sings "I need somebody to love".
Wow that was pretty good. Actually sounded like Ringo.
fuck, was gonna post this but figured it would get negged or not counted as news.
New found props for my PM, despite the fact that he's still an android that seems bent on ruining our country
so who does this mean obama will cover...?
I would love to see Obama cover Avril
Obama will cover MC Hammer duh!
He certainly wont cover Kanye
Obama will cover the Monkees.
.... good god do I hate this guy...
Not a bad cover actually. Too bad Harper is a tool, bent on ruining this country.

I figured it wouldn't take long for something like this to show up. Keep your political opinions to yourself.
aww you're a tool too
"I figured it wouldn't take long for something like this to show up. Keep your political opinions to yourself."
I'm sorry, I must have missed the "don't mention politics when discussing a political figure" sign at the top of this thread. I'm also hardly the first person in this thread (see: third) who expressed his dislike of Stephen Harper and his politics. I merely commented on the fact that although the performance was pretty good, I still don't like the man and his beliefs (in like, ONE sentence). I didn't realize this was "too political" to be handled by the Sputnik readership.
Cover was great. I wasn't expecting that from the PM. He did look ridiculously pale though. BTW, anyone who seriously thinks Harper is "bent on ruining this country" needs to have their head checked, or at least reevaluate how they express disapproval of political leadership.
PM should cover Frank Zappa. His cover of the Beatles was nice to see.
