A Classic Song About Charlemagne

A Classic 80's Pop Rock Song
Adapted for an Action hero of the 8th Century

Hey kids! I want to share with you a classic 80's rock song about an historical figure you public school students ain't never learnt about: Charlemagne (king of the Holy Roman Empire).

If you want to learn more about this great man, go to Wikipedia or something.

Now I bet you Steely Dan fans thought I was talking about "Kid Charlemagne". Sorry, although I love the Dan's song, this song is about a real action hero of the 8th Century. And yes, it's really a take on Blondie's "Call Me." Her music is good enough to be used for this monumental figure of human history.

Check it out and listen to the lyrics and learn something about history.



 I got a hold of the video through American Catholic reading about Charles Martel, grandfather of Charlemagne and one of my dear ancestors.

Another song about an historical figure by yours truly: Cortez

These 2 Mirrorkats play a mean guitar


I come across so much music that it spins my head.

Ah, but every now and then I find a gem, something fresh, and something surprising.

This post is different. Instead of me yammering about a group of young talented musicians, I'll just get out of the way and let you tune in.

If you like them, support them and become a fan and perhaps leave a kind message on their Reverbnation page.

Here are the Mirrorkats, direct from Chicago, with their first hit, Age of Heroes.
