    For those who may have missed my previous comments. I compiled and uploaded this so I could explain my love of Van-Gogh's art to a dear friend of mine and thought McLean's Stary Stary Night was perfect in helping to explain. The lyrics were strictly for the benefit of my Friend, who's first language is not English.I never imagined it would get so many views and comments. I'm so glad I was able to share.

    It seems like every song I youtube lately starts with a facebook ad. They have been losing members. That is good. The more people stay off social media, the better off they are.

    This song is a masterpiece. It is simply divine in its capture of our human frailty…..

    At eternity gate 1890 oil paint by Vincent Van Gogh is one of the best.

    im also an artist/painter and for me Van Gogh is the Greatest Dutch painter of all time the Greatest artist in post impressionism ,The greatest human in 19th century.

    for this Piece: Don McLean – Vincent ( Starry, Starry Night) With Lyrics

    The Deleted WORDS WERE ABOUT DON McLean'S ARTY WAY of DESCRIBE VINCENT'S COMPUTER HACKER WORKING ROUTINE
    .
    DON McLean Wrote:
    *****************
    Starry, starry night
    Paint your palette blue and gray
    *****************
    DURING NIGHT SOME OF the TWINKLE TWINKLE stars in the Sky WOULD CHOOSE TO OVERLOOK EARTH SATELLITE SCENCES. SOME OF THEIR LITTLE STAR SATILLITE CAMERA SYSTEM PROGRAMMED TO PEEP VINCENT'S BUSY ELECTRONICS ENGINEERING DESIGN AND COMPUTER HACKER LIFE.

    HERE "Paint your palette blue and gray" MEANS THAT VINCENT DRAW THE ELECTRONICS CIRCUIT DIAGRAME ON THE COMPUTER SCREEN.
    THE DISIGNATED BACKGROUND PLACE BOARD COLOR IN AUSTRALIA ENGINEERING STANDARD IS BLUE.
    (In other country, the printed placeboard is Green Color. I used to work as Business Analysis Forecast these kind company's Finance and Future market share.)
    ALL THOSE TINY COMPONENTS could be in DIFFERENT SHADES of GREY.

    AFTER DESIGNING The Circuit on the Computer, VINCENT would PURCHASE THese small pieces and Assemble a CHIPS to INSTALL to a BIG DEVICE he would HACKING.

    ELECTRONICS SCIENCE WORKS ARE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY ARTISTS' ARTWORKS ANY TIME ON EARTH.

    THAT'S JUST the UNIQUE of VINCENT AND OTHER SIMILAR SYDNEY COMPUTER HACKER'S WAY of CONVERT REAL LIFE TO MUSICS/SONGS/NOVELS/CARTOON MOVIES ETC….

    The WHOLE WORKING PROCESS IN DESIGNing THE CIRCUIT DEMAND MORE EDUCATION & INHERITED GENIUS QUALITY , SO DON make it IN THE BEGINNING OF HIS SONG—-Paint your palette blue and gray.

    YOU COULD SAFETLY CONCLUDE THAT people with HIGH EDUCATION achieved in ENGINEERING SECTORS would be MORE CREATIVE IN ARTS. AT LEAST THEY Would ENJOY VISUAL ARTS/MOVIES/MUSICS in ways U could not imaging.

    TRUE EDUCATION BRINGS REAL HAPPINESS.

    A perfect song. The tune is beautiful. Maclean tells the tragic story of Van Gogh through lyrics that paint vivid pictures utilising Van Gogh’s palette of colours. I would go as far as to say this song matches the genius of Van Gogh, and is a worthy tribute.

    Starry, starry night
    Paint your palette blue and gray
    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
    And 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
    And how you suffered for your sanity
    And 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 inside
    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
    A silver thorn, a bloody rose
    Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow
    Now I think I know what you tried to say to me
    And how you suffered for your sanity
    And how you tried to set them free
    They would not listen, they're not listening still
    Perhaps they never will

    _life is a destiny too mysterious for human wisdom to understand. Who would ever think of the sudden overturn of Van Gogh, work just after his death. The work which had never been appreciated during his life time causing misery and failure until death became of amazingly great value. Oh, a destiny beyond understanding,,

    Masterpiece….Vincent never sild a painting in his life and was constantly rejected by everyone.Now his paintings sell for hundreds of millions and his story is one that has been portrayed by Hollwood by Kirk Douglas.
