it's official # this is hilarious

So I'm sitting here doing research for my trip to Turkey, entering the names in the itinerary into Google and having a great time. What should come on the radio but "Constantinople"?? In case you're not familiar with the song it's about a city in Turkey and lamenting the changing of the name of the city. It's a heck of a case of coincidence. I'm sitting here...............

Why they change it? I can't say, maybe people just liked it better that way?

Strangely enough, the name Istanbul is of Greek origin. The meaning is obscure, however.
Oops, this isn't FYM.

Um... you didn't get it. He's not correcting you, he's singing the lyrics to the song.

Silly Verte... you just heard the song too!

I'm terrible at remembering song lyrics. Actually, I usually don't even understand lyrics. It must be my autism.
