Error description

The 1978 disco song Rasputin by Boney M. uses part of the melody of "K√Ętibim", and mimics the line "Oh! those Turks" (as "Oh! those Russians") at the end of the song.

I added this as a comment. I don't think Rasputin is completely based on the Turkish song. The melody is substantially different.

Cool! If anything the melody Boney M uses is probably from the Eartha Kitt version (that I'm in the processing of adding). The "Oh! those Turks" quote is from there:
