Song of the Day – “Vincent” – Don McLean

An unlikely hit – a pop song about an impressionist painter who gave it all for love. How do you convey the feeling of a painter’s work in a four-minute pop song? With words like this.

Starry, starry night
Portraits hung in empty halls
Frame-less heads on nameless walls
With eyes that watch the world and can’t forget
