There are aliens there, but they don’t come from the outer space. Well, who knows, ha ha ha!

As an exercise for illustrating stereotypes, the Advanced Level class book includes the song “Englishman in New York” by Sting.

Could you imagine what would happen if the song talked about a Jamaican man there? Well, Shinehead answers the question singing “Jamaican in New York”:

Even Mecano, the Spanish group from the eighties, imagined a Spanish man there: “No hay marcha en Nueva York”, ha ha ha!

Both songs even include saxophone solos. Curious, isn’t it?

Do you know any other similar song? If so, don’t hesitate and let us know, please!
