Favorite Song about a Historical Person

Might it also have something to do with how nice that girl looks? ;)

Anyway, my favourite version is the one by Buena Vista Social Club
There's a girl in the video? I haven't noticed. :halo:

I almost never prefer the calmer version of a song. The only exception I can think of right now is Shocking Blue (for Love Buzz and Venus, compared to Nirvana and Bananarama respectively).

A really wonderful song by the Canadian singer Stan Rogers about Lt. Col. John Macdonnell, a hero of the War of 1812:

I suspect that most people who know about him nowadays came to know about him through this song!
