Q. I was wondering why the song Politik was named in German? Is there a special reason? Why it's not Politic?

Cheers, Francisco


The Oracle replies:

A while back, Chris gave an interview about it: "Phil said to me ‘Oh, you should have a song called Politic.' And I said ‘Oh, all right'. It's as simple as that. Because if he says something you do it, unless it's something naff, but we liked it because it sounds Eastern... Russian. But it is meant to be with a K. We like it as a song title."
