VINCENT (VAN GOGH): SONG by Don McLean (9 / 5 / 09) VINCENT (VAN GOGH): SONG by Don McLean (9 / 5 / 09)

I´ve been working with a thematic unit called "Art and the Arts". The first artist I worked with was Vincent Van Gogh, so I decided to make students listen to the song Don McLean wrote to this excellent painter. The worksheet with Vincent´s life overview is at http://www.eslprintables.com/archivos2/2009/may/eslprintables20095655549102189320.doc The mp3 file is easily found on the net, but if you prefer I could send it in an email. So please, feel free to ask me, just leave a comment and I´ll send you the song! Hope you like and enjoy it!!

Thanks for sharing. Very interesting. I never realized this song was about Van Gough.         posted by GIOVANNI

"Lust for Life" by Irving Stone ... thanks         posted by Ivona
"No artist has been more ruthlessly driven by his creative urge, nor more isolated by it from most ordinary sources of human happiness, than Vincent Van Gogh. A painter of genius, his life was an incessant struggle against poverty, discouragement, madness and despair. Lust for Life skilfully captures the exciting atmosphere of the Paris of the Post-Impressionists and reconstructs with great insight the development of Van Gogh´s art. The painter is brought to life not only as an artist but as a personality and this account of his violent, vivid and tormented life is a novel of rare compassion and vitality."

I have this song on a CD and have used it with Ss before. Most of them don´t know it, so they really have to listen for the missing words! And it´s slow enough for them to fill in with a lot of imagery and reference to his work & life.
