Take This Tune - Vincent



Jamie of Duward Discussion published her meme yesterday, Take This Tune, but I didn't get a chance to look at it until today.

I've always believed Jamie and I have something in common and that we are very often on the same wavelength. Well there it was the tune "
Vincent."

"Vincent" is a song by Don McLean written as a tribute to Vincent van Gogh. It is also known by its opening line, "Starry Starry Night", a reference to van Gogh's painting The Starry Night. The song also describes different paintings done by the artist.

McLean wrote the lyrics in 1971 after reading a book about the life of the artist.[citation needed][1]. The following year, the song became the number one hit in the U.K. and No. 12 in the U.S

In 2000, PBS aired Don McLean: Starry, Starry Night, a concert special that was filmed in Austin, Texas.

I have always loved the music and of course Vincent Van Gogh. But what's more coincidental is that I have been married to a Vincent for many years. Here he is below:

The love of my life.

Oh, and here's a funny -- a friend of mine told me the other day that we were on the same wavelink...it's all in the way you hear it, right?

That's a look of love right there, introduced by words equally wonderful.

This realm of sharing among strangers is good for my heart! :)

Jamie sure seems to know what music to select for this feature. She's got the knack.
