Easter, The Only One

There's a song for pretty much every holiday, but did you know there's one for Easter too? (No, it's not a church hymn) This is "Easter" by Marillion. I'm going to type out the CD's liner notes about this song for you, because I find it to be most interesting. This is the ONLY Easter song that I'm aware of that isn't a hymn and doesn't suck.

I hope you like this song as much as I do!

 

 

Easter 5:56

(Steve Hogarth, Steve Rothery, Mark Kelly, Pete Trewavas, Ian Mosley)

Published by Charisma Music Publishing/Rondor Music (London) Ltd p1989

Produced by Nick Davis & Marillion

It was February '89. I had been with the band for about three weeks. We were at the Music Farm, near Brighton, Sussex. I had this red plastic bucket full of cassettes and tambourines. In the evenings we would listen through to any half-formed musical ideas we had written during the days. If we were stuck for inspiration, Mark would ask me if there was anything in the bucket…I'd written this song about a year before, in early '88, but never got beyond chorus 2 until the band got a hold of it… I was thinking of the "The Skye Boat Song" and I wanted Easter to be like that, but like an anthem for Ireland. It's not a political song, it's a love song – A tribute to the warmth of the Irish spirit, a message of hope and support to the great majority of people who want nothing to do with the gunmen (all the gunmen) but must, nonetheless, raise their children amidst a climate of potential violence. I referred to Yeats' poem "Easter 1916"… More out of reverence to his genius than out of plagarism… Honest! H.
