"Maid of Orleans" as written by and Andrew/de Donatis Mc Cluskey....
If Joan of Arc
Had a heart
Would she give it as a gift

To such as me
Who longs to see
How an angel ought to be

Her dream's to give
Her heart away
Like an orphan on a wave

She cared so much
She offered up
Her body to the grave

    General CommentI agree as to why there are no comments on this song, it's a triumph of a haunting melody coupled with lyrics brilliantly written by Andy McClusky, who is obviously in awe (or in love) with the image and aura of Joan of Arc. It is not the only time that she has been mentioned in his songs. The woman in the video is stunning too, but that's just my personal opinion! I would like to think that the original Joan of Arc might actually enjoy this song, though whether it would translate into French very well is anyone's guess.

    General CommentWonderful melody and epic lyrics. It is one of the songs without which the eighties would have never been the eighties.
