At the end of the interview, Gorbachev sings "Between the past and the future is the blink of an eye, and that instant is what we call life." BBC News

The BBC's Steve Rosenberg in Moscow was given a rare interview with Mikhail Gorbachev.

Another interview and song, The Daily Beast. Gorbachev sings "Old Letters"

On YouTube - From Wikipedia : ''On June 16, 2009, Gorbachev announced that he had recorded an album of old Russian romantic ballads entitled Songs for Raisa to raise money for a charity dedicated to his late wife".

Another song: "Dark Night".

Mikhail Gorbachev's 'debut album' sells for £100,000. The Guardian, June 2009


I am reminded that Czech singer and guitarist Vladimír Merta one told me: “during the Velvet Revolution I insisted that any candidate for any function should sing a song, just to be controlled from the unpolitical side of the brain. You pass for President!”
