Damn my breadth of knowledge of crappy 80's music!

Tomorrow I am slated to teach about the Etruscans. I have to emphasize how they never formed a real nation, it's just a bunch of connected but separate city-states.

And their art is fascinating and beautiful and very strange. See?



I love it!

But damn if I don't have "I am Etruria", sung to the tune of "I am the warrior" by Scandal stuck in my head. Crap.

Tell your students that! It'll be a great way to get the concept stuck in their heads. :)
