Flashback Friday//Don McLean- Vincent

Released in 1971, ‘Vincent’ is a song of understanding, sympathy and compassion towards a misunderstood soul. Touching lyrics such as

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 

bring the song to life and convey real, genuine emotion towards Vincent Van Gogh.

Much to my shame, I only recently properly listened to this and understood it. What a beautiful, tragic song.
