"For several years, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam played the song daily. A copy of the sheet music is in a safe beneath the museum, along with a set of van Gogh's paint brushes, the that he used while painting Starry Night and various other items.

It is rumored that Van Gogh's painting of the 'Starry Night' was painted during the time he was in an asylum and that he sold only one
painting during his lifetime as he was not recognized. That's perhaps what caused him to fall into an abyss of depression which eventually led to his suicide."

This slide show and content was sent to me from my good friend Leslie Aorian on Dec 24th 2009.

Music: Vincent (Starry, Starry Night) Composed & Performed by Don Mclean Now, press the space bar or mouse click to begin, then sit back and let the show run itself.
    • Starry, starry night, paint your palette blue and grey.
    • Look out on a summer's day
    • with eyes that know the darkness in my soul. Shadows on the hills,
    • sketch the trees and the daffodils, catch the breeze and the winter chills
    • in colors on the snowy linen land. Now I understand
    • what you tried to say to me,
    • how you suffered for your sanity, how you tried to set them free.
    • They would not listen, they did not know how.
    • perhaps they'll listen now.
    • Starry, starry night,
    • flaming flowers that brightly blaze,
    • swirling clouds in violet haze reflect in Vincent's eyes of China blue. .
    • Colors changing hue,
    • morning fields of amber grain,
    • weathered faces lined in pain are soothed beneath the artist's loving hand.
    • . Now I understand
    • what you tried to say to me, how you suffered for your sanity, how you tried to set them free.
    • They would not listen. They did not know how. Perhaps they'll listen now.
    • For they could not love you,
    • but still your love was true, and when no hope was left in sight on that starry, starry night,
    • You took your life as lovers often do; But I could have told you, Vincent, this world was never meant for one as beautiful as you.
    • Starry, starry night,
    • portraits hung in empty halls,
    • frameless heads on nameless walls,
    • with eyes that watch the world and can't forget. Like the strangers that you've met,
    • the ragged men in ragged clothes,
    • the silver thorn of bloody rose lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow.
    • Now I think I know what you tried to say to me, how you suffered for your sanity,
    • how you tried to set them free. They would not listen. They're not list’ning still.
    • Perhaps, they never will.
    • V I N C E N T VAN GOGH I hope you enjoyed the show. Feel free to share it with others.
