    hi jayanth

    McLean's songs 'American Pie' and 'Vincent' are considered to be all time classics.

    American Pie is sometimes interpreted as : http://coz.mu/archives/2004/08/19/for_a_deeper_appreciation_of_american_pie.html

    while 'Vincent' is a song about an artist (painter) named Vincent. Vincent made a famous painting 'Stary Night'. Later on due to severe psychological problems he was sent to an assylum.

    the Lyrics are touchy and the music soft (mostly guitar).


    If you do not find the songs anywhere for download, then let me know...i will mail them to you.


    regards

    er, the "famous artist" called Vincent here, was a certain Vincent Van Gogh!!!


    "the Starry Night" is one of his two most famous works, the other one being ofcourse, "Sunflowers".

    And he was already in asylum when he painted the "starry night" master piece.



    yeah great song, with one line that hits you with the force of a kicking mule.
