Learned about this in English today, actually :) The Moors changed it to Istanbul, because it was named after the Catholic Roman emperor Constantine.

This is actually a cover from a era all old song. Not insulting it at all it's just good to here a revived song.

What do you mean I can't go back? Not my business? Too bad I can't phone Turkey... I'd convince them. "Listen here, if you don't tell me why you changed the name... I'll introduce you to Hungary"... And then Hungary well have name change itself; to Satisafied.
