Shona Laing - (Glad I'm) Not A Kennedy

New Zealand singer/songwriter Shona Laing received some well-deserved international attention for her 1986 single "(Glad I'm) Not A Kennedy", a fabulous pop song about the perils of fame in general, and specifically about the perils of being a Kennedy. The song, taken from her album South, features a few audio clips from John F. Kennedy and the video is filled with clips of him, being president of the United States and as a family man, interspersed with clips showing Laing singing her song. And today, fittingly, it's exactly 50 years since JFK's famous squeeze, actress Marilyn Monroe, was found dead under dubious circumstances.

Watch and listen
