I've only heard Convenience by Bob. Wonderful piece of Indiepop. You could clearly teach GIK and Furtho a bit, GY.

Best album that isn't about a historical figure: Franz Ferdinand.

"We've got a bigger problem now" - Dead Kennedys. Same tune as CUA but about Reagan. Lacks some of the bite of the original though.

Modesty prevents me from pointing out that far and away the best ever song about a historical figure is of course the rollockin' Irish balad, 'Follow me up to Carlow' .

The first verse and chorus of "Rasputin" is class:

There lived a certain man in Russia long ago
He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow
Most people looked at him with terror and with fear
But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear
He could preach the bible like a preacher
Full of ecstacy and fire
But he also was the kind of teacher
Women would desire

RA RA RASPUTIN
Lover of the Russian queen
There was a cat that really was gone
RA RA RASPUTIN
Russia's greatest love machine
It was a shame how he carried on

Such happy memories. This summer, we turned 'Ra, ra Rasputin' and 'Ma Baker' into the theme tunes to four English speaking holiday camps in Viet Nam. There are now 200 Vietnamese teenagers who can sing that first verse word perfect. They got so enthused by it that at the end of one of the camps they wrote an altered version of it for Little Red Riding Hood 'Red, red riding hood, there was a cat that really was gone...' (bearing in mind that red riding hood was acted by a very camp boy in all too convincing drag).
