May 29 in EP History Trivia (win a prize today!)

Postby KarenZ » Thu May 29, 2008 2:52 pm

JFK, Joan of Arc
Sit in the corner
Kissing in the dark -- Ellis Paul


John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th U.S. President was born on this date in 1917. He was the first Roman Catholic President, first to be awarded the Purple Heart, first to serve in U.S. Navy, first to win a Pulitzer Prize (for his book Profiles in Courage), fourth U.S. President to be assassinated, second to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.

Can anyone name the Ellis Paul song containing the lines of lyric above? I'll send a Shallow Hal DVD (featuring Ellis' song "Sweet Mistakes") to the first person with the correct answer. :)

"Some people are born to make great art and others are born to appreciate it. 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.

What a song! :)
Great going, Cathy! :D

Martyr's Lounge
from Ellis Paul Essentials


Leo's is the bar up in heaven
Where all the martyrs hang out
Gandhi staggers in with John Lennon
They'll start a bar fight, no doubt

[chorus]
When you lead, we follow
When you bleed, oh the masses feel your pain
Plant your seed, setting sunflowers
Growing inside our brains...

Now Jesus don't need no introduction
He's got a famous old man
And a party for twelve, I see Cobain, He's well
He's in the Angels that Fell,
A local touring bar band.

[repeat chorus]

JFK, Joan of Arc
Sit in the corner, kissing in the dark
Marilyn Monroe, Jacques Cousteau
Talk about the sharks they used to know...

[repeat chorus]
