Francis Scott Key

happy birthday francis scott keyFrancis Scott Key is best known for writing our national anthem, The Star Spangled Banner.  According to legend, the music used in the song was lifted from an old bar room ballad. I don't think it was “100 Bottles of Beer on the Wall”.

Francis Scott Key was both a lawyer and a poet, so he could sue himself for copyright infringement.

On that fateful night of composition, he was hanging out with Rear Admiral George Cockburn. (insert your own Rear Admiral Cockburn joke here)

Francis Scott Key shares a birthday with Coolio, Cymphonique Miller, Chuck D and Professor Griff, so Mr. Key knows how to lay down a hip-hop hard core rap beat. Since he was a slave owner, he must have done more than lay down a few beats. On more than one occasion, he prosecuted abolitionists and those who promoted the suppression of slavery.

In what is no way ironic, he was also associated with the American Bible Society.

In 1970, Francis Scott Key was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Singers everywhere curse his name whenever they have to perform the song with lyrics that are hard to remember and notes that are harder to reach.

Francis Scott had two bridges and one great nephew named after him. F. Scott Fitzgerald is a direct descendent. That gives anyone who has to read The Great Gatsby another reason to despise the family.
