Song of the Day: 'Ukrainian Cowboy' by Josie Cotton

The inimitable Josie Cotton -- who has thus far escaped after-the-fact cancellation for her '80s New Wave anthem "Johnny, Are You Queer?" -- returns with her most irresistible song since "Jimmy Loves Maryann."
"Ukrainian Cowbow" subtly reminiscent of Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’,” the song blends flavors of country, pop, and new wave, along with tints of traditional Russian folk music, into a tasty sonic confection.  
The video blends visuals akin to "A Fistful of Dollars" fused with "Dr. Zhivago," as Cotton, wearing a white dress, rides a horse across the screen, followed by playing her guitar caparisoned in a glitzy, kitschy cowgirl outfit complete with Dolly Parton-like big hair. During her ride, she comes across Russian soldiers standing at attention or dancing, a marching band, and a balalaika playing bear.
