~ Wednesday, April 20, 2005

A dozen songs which mention Ernest Hemingway:

1 Billy Joel – We Didn't Start the Fire ('Hemingway, Eichmann, Stranger in a Strange Land')
2 A House – Endless Art ('Ernest Hemingway 1899-1961')
3 Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel – All the Men Are Hungry ('I realised Papa wanted me to live in his bullring life')
4 The Bellamy Brothers – Hemingway Hideaway ('Hemingway hideaway, a tropical dream come true')
5 Bad Religion – Stranger Than Fiction ('I want to know why Hemingway cracked')
6 Prince – Love 2 the 9s ('Is Hemingway dead? Well who's the president now?')
7 Ween – Don't Laugh (I Love You) (Ernest Hemingway would always be there for me')
8 Falco – Kamikaze Cappa ('Pablo Picasso, Francois Gilot, Hemingway, Hitchcock')
9 Momus – Born to Be Adored ('I've got a mouth like Ernest Hemingway's ashtray')
10 Wu Tang Clan – Severe Punishment ('Tap dance swelling Hemingway novel model for a breather')
11 Ben Lee – Ketchum ('Today I got the call from Ketchum, Idaho from Hemingway')
12 Mary Gauthier – Drag Queens in Limousines ('Kimmy sold pot and read Kerouac and Hemingway')

There are many more – but these are the ones by better known artistes.
