Azerbaijani Accountants Dig Whitney Houston
You might think that American cultural icons have managed to penetrate Azerbaijani consciousness. You are right. In and of itself, this is a good thing. What makes it even better are the seemingly oddly-chosen cultural features that stream from Azerbaijani cellphones and TV sets. Nearing more than three months living here, I am still blown away. My colleagues at the credit union started blasting Whitney Houston’s The Bodyguard soundtrack the other day, and they were ecstatic! My accountant friends from Araz and the other credit union nearby were all about Whitney’s “I Will Always Love You.” I’m certainly aware of the awesomeness that Whitney Houston projects when it comes to music, but I had no idea that Azerbaijan felt so strongly about her musical brilliance! Needless to say, I’m looking forward to another day at work, rockin’ out to some Russian hits, a few Azerbaijani dance beats, and the best of Whitney Houston.
