«Rasputin» is a 1978 euro disco hit single by the Germany-based pop and euro disco group Boney M., the second from their hugely successful albumNightflight to Venus. The song is a semi-biographical song whose subject and namesake is Grigori Rasputin, a friend and advisor of Tsar Nicholas II of Russia and his family during the early 20th century. The song variously sensationalizes Rasputin as a playboy, mystical healer and political demiurge.
