At the beginning of this week, Vladimir Putin sat down at a piano in China and played a couple of songs from his childhood. Of course there were reporters there to document the occurrence. One of them asked what song Putin would play for Donald Trump if they ever had a chance to meet.

“I don’t know, I think we’d need to meet him, have a discussion, and depending on the result choose a melody,” Putin replied.

After reading the story, I started wondering “What songs would Vladimir Putin play for Donald Trump?” myself. That inspired me to create “From Russia, with Love” – a mix of songs that Putin would play for or dedicate to Trump.

It’s far from my best mixtape, but it’s still pretty fun. You can check it out HERE!
