Czech band "Píča" (Pussy), and their cover of Bobby Brown, lyrics translated into Czech (very good translation, by the way)

Rock Hotel - "Tüütuks muutub hellus", or more relevantly, an Estonian cover version of "Harder Than Your Husband". Released on a 1986 LP, but in order to mitigate the Soviet censorship (remember, in the olden days, each record in the Soviet Union came out under one state-owned record label Melodiya), the original music composer was credited as "P. Anderson" strangely enough. Even moreso strange considering that Zappa himself chose considerably less conservative pseudonyms when he had to conceal his identity on his guest slots.

Song can be listened to here: http://www.mp3centa.com/Rock-Hotel/7107 ... d%20track/

Nice, I love that language since I've been in Estonia 3 years ago.
