Mr Donald Trump is coming to Singapore on 12 June to meet up with North Korea's Mr Kim Jong Un for a first get together and, as the newspapers say, it would be a historical summit moment.
There's a suggestion by many observers and WhatsApp enthusiasts that the two Great Leaders could meet at Peace Centre (image above) in Singapore that memorable day. Of course, it's *tongue in cheek.

But it's one big tick for our small dot since we even have a Peace Centre in place many years ago for such occasions.
So here's welcoming them to this sunny, peace-loving and properly secured island and hoping negotiations will go well for a more peaceful and stable world.

*😉Tongue in cheek: Peace Centre is a small retail mall and is unlikely to hold an international conference of such magnitude. The two will meet in one of the exquisitely beautiful hotels or corporate buildings, all well-equipped for such an occasion.
I shall dwell on Mr Kim's music interest. He has some pop favourites but there is not much information about them. One particular choice of his is Brother Louie (image) by Germany's electro-pop stars Modern Talking.
It was a 1986 January hit song in the country and Sweden. Re-released in 1998, it became tops in France and Austria too. Way back when in 1973, Hot Chocolate made this song famous and had been covered by Code Red and megastar Bon Jovi.
According to a few websites, he is keen on art rock records, Euro-pops and North Korean Girl Bands? Certainly uncertain. Of course, everyone knows he has a deep understanding of Dennis Rodman, a retired American professional basketball player.
Lately, USA Today, in its news report about Mr Kim (3 April 2018), stated that he adores K-Pop music and was "deeply moved" after watching a two-hour South Korean concert at Pyongyang.
He showed much interest in the performance and asked questions about the songs and lyrics. For action films, Mr Kim loves James Bond movies and kung-fu flick Hong Kong star Jackie Chan.

So here they are again, the terrible threesome whose initials spell KAT, Kim, Andy Young (blogger) and Trump. They'll be meeting on Tuesday, 12 June 2018.

I read recently that he likes a song by Elvis Presley's favourite composers Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller (e.g. Hound Dog, Jailhouse Rock). It was a Peggy Lee big 1969 hit, Is That All There Is? (Video above). The question seems to fit Mr Trump's profile?
Through the years I have posted a number of articles about Mr Trump's music preferences and the international music makers that he likes.
