I have loved this song for years. It has a very deep place in my heart. It really is too beautiful for words. Perhaps one of Vincent's pictures would best comment for this song.

One of the best songs ever written. Does anything in popular music today even compare? Would a record company even release a song like this today?

A masterpiece that does Vincent justice. Don McLean is also an artist. It is a beautiful song.

I don't know how many times I heard this song on the radio years ago before I actually listened to it and realized he was singing about Vincent Van Gogh. Terrific song.

Haven't heard this in such a long time, there's so much to Don McLean than American Pie.

As an Artist I love seeing songs about art :p I rank this in the top 3 best songs ever written....p r o b a b l y at number 2. Gordon Lightfoot's Ballad of the Yarmouth Castle is number 1....

I was very pleased to see these lyrics listed as a poem in a high school literature book. Great song. Great lyrics. Great poetry. Great God, I'm a mushy idiot!

A most touching tribute to a glorious but troubled man. This is a song that will stand the test of time, just as Vincent's paintings do.

Everyone measured McLean for America Pie, but this is the song that sold me on him. I love how this song touches the heart, how you can't help but feel.

Love this song! Always reminds me of warm, summer nights in New Jersey...sta y i n g out past dark...tryin g to catch lightning bugs, or running to the Dairy Queen, with my blue ball Panasonic radio on a chain by my side! :D

One of the most touching songs EVER written, and I have always loved it. To this day I will get a chill, a pang, sometimes even a tear. Beautiful.

I remember hearing this song for the first time in French class. My teacher loved it, and I love it too :)

It makes no difference to me at all about its inspiration, that is great to know, but this song is a song that like many of Don McLean and America's songs, can not help but touch a "special place in your heart", if your heart is open to the melody, the lyrics and the ambiance that "paints" such a joyous, peaceful design on ones soul. If not, then sadly, your heart has probably been corrupted, poisoned by the wrongs in this "world". Close your eyes, open your heart an listen again and feel !

The poetic language of this song trumps any "limpness" that might be present with the song's melody and chord progression. I am jaded though. I have loved this song since I was a kid. I am not artistic enough to "get" Van Gogh like most, but I get this song!
