Today (July 20) in EP Music History Trivia (win a prize!)

Postby KarenZ » Thu Jul 20, 2006 9:47 am

"I've seen you walk like Charlie Chaplin
I've seen you cry like Natalie Wood
Sometimes I wish I could read you
like a silent movie caption
'Cause if I could get in your head,
you know I would, I would" -- Ellis Paul

Three-time Academy Award Nominee American actress Natalie Wood was born on July 20, 1938. Her film career spanned 40 years, ending with her tragic drowning off Catalina Island in 1981 at the age of 43.

Can you name the Ellis Paul song containing the lines of lyric above? The first person to reply with the correct answer will win a copy of Ellis' Notes from the Road.

Good luck! :)

It is a kind of talent in itself, to be an audience, whether you are the spectator in the gallery or you are listening to the voice of the world's greatest soprano. Not everyone can be the artist. There have to be those who witness the art, who love and appreciate what they have been privileged to see." -- Ann Patchett in Bel Canto.

I agree - it's an excellent read and gives some lovely insights into how/why songs were written. Makes the songs even more meaningful when you know the story behind the song.
