Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman

Everyone has has heard Aaron Copelands song Fanfare for the Common Man.

I've always wanted to write a similar piece and call it Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman.

Here's Aaron riding the bus with Rosa Parks.

I think that was Stewart Copeland, saintlianna.

Aaron Copeland was a modern American composer, born in 1900 and died in 1990. 'Fanfare for the Common Man' was covered by the 1970s prog-rock band 'Emerson, Lake and Palmer'. It's on their Works Vol 2 album, I believe. Real stirring stuff!

I nearly wrote Stewart Copeland in when I first wrote this thing up. Stewart is an awesome drummer buy much like Aaron he turned his talents to composing after the Police broke up. Soundtrack - Bladerunner and more.

He is the son of a CIA agent and grew up in the middle east. Recently toured witht the suviving members of the Doors and somewhat recently had a band called Oysterhead that included guitarist/singer Trey Anastasio of Phish and the monster bassist from Primus Les Claypool.

In my book the weakest link in the Police was Andy Summers. He had Blonde hair and used a lot of effects. And couldn't solo to save his life. That was about it.

Rosa Parks was cool.

St. Lianna axed,

Okay then who was the bassist?

Once after this bassist had used the restroom at the Conan show Andy Richter stated..."I think he should actually be called Smelly"

G. Gordon Liddy isn't it?

Or should that be Sumner?

And what was Bilbo's sword named drom that Bored of the Dongs book/movie?

The sword (actually a long elven dagger) was named Sting. The Gordon Sumner guy lifted it from the book, didn't he?

(guess who's locked out of her account again... didn't do anything for it, either)

Hey BlueLeopard,

I was just going to ask why you seem so familiar even though I know I haven't met you.

Didn't Sting come from Barbarella too?

It was news to me that Woody Allen had stolen the Orgasmatron from Barb but that jus shows my Native ignorance.

Barnarella also seemed sort of Felliniesque in a way. Satyricon.

Ever see La Dolce' Vita or 8 1/2?

In your specific case the answer is quite definitely "Smelly"

The words of that song are so special to me. My mother was tremendously involved in the Civil Rights' movement.

I think if you wrote a song such as that it would be magnificent! *gentle hugs*

Hey sapphire, I was going to refer you to item #28 inLisztomania and lo and behold you had already been there with a right smart comment. A few of them actually.

There are lyrics to Fanfare for the Common Man too? I never heard that version but will Google for it.

No, not that have been published. Just what I wrote as a kid. Albert Copeland is one of my all-time favorite American composers. As a matter-of-fact, I was just discussing him with another blogger this evening.

I'll need to go back to Lisztomania and review that.

Thanks for the welcome KC_JJ.

I believe that Gordon Sumner acquired the nickname 'Sting' because, during his working life as a teacher pre-Police, he had a black-and-yellow striped jumper which (I suppose) he must have worn a lot.

Barbarella fuelled a lot of young men's sexual fantasies when it was released ... including my husband's
