5 Great Songs Inspired by Art and Artists

1. Vincent (Starry Starry Night) - Don McLean

This is a tribute song by Don McLean. The song is a reference to Vincent Van Gogh’s painting, “Starry Starry Night”. The musician wrote it after reading a biography about Vincent Van Gogh.

2. The Mona Lisa - Brad Paisley

The inspiration for this song came when Brad Paisley had the opportunity to see the Mona Lisa painting at the Louvre in Paris while on a trip with his wife, actress Kimberly Williams.

3. Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - The Beatles

John Lennon based this song on a drawing that Julian Lennon did at school of a classmate which he called “Lucy – in the sky with diamonds”. Lennon also states that the song was also inspired by Lewis Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland” books.

4. Nat King Cole - Mona Lisa

This oscar-winning song was in the movie “Captain Carey, U.S.A.”. It was written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, and was first performed by Nat King Cole.

5. Paul McCartney & Wings - Picasso’s Last Words (Drink To Me)

The title and lyrics of the song come from what was reported as the last words of Pablo Picasso that he spoke to his guests before he went to bed and died in his sleep: “drink to me, drink to my health, you know I can’t drink anymore.”
