Friday 5 – Power to the People

Today we have 5 songs about real people; past or present, alive or dead, so long as they’re real! It sounds easier than it is, but here’s what I came up with;

Angel of Harlem – U2 (jazz singer, Billie Holiday)

Nightshift – The Commodores (R&B artists, Marvin Gaye & Jackie Wilson… hey, 2 for 1!)

Vincent (Starry Starry Night) – Don McLean (artist, Vincent Van Gogh)

James K. Polk – They Might Be Giants (US president, James K. Polk)

Candle in the Wind – Elton John (actress, Norma Jeane Mortenson, aka Marilyn Monroe) Can’t believe no one’s said that one yet!
