Old School Fridays: Social/Political Songs- STARRY, STARRY NIGHT

As an artist I have always loved this song because it speaks to how society looks upon the artistic soul, the creative mind and those who are different. This world was never meant for those who do not follow the beaten path, it can be a cruel and harsh place for those who see things from a different perspective.

Vincent, they're still not listening and the world's sanity is at risk.

This is Don McLean in a live performance from 1972:



I had to come back and add this video of Josh Groban's rendition too - so beautiful.

  4. Hey there, just discovered your link. I have never heard this song before, but I like it. It;s quite calming and mellow. Now I understand why you chose Van Gogh's Starry Night painting...This song is about Vincent....

    Great pick...
