Tribute in Song to Vincent Van Gogh "Starry Night"
(Note: There are several incorrect spellings in this video.) This video is an excellent teaching resource for upper middle/high school students to introduce Vincent Van Gogh and his work. Various Van Gogh paintings show on screen as Don McLean's tribute song plays and words of song appear on bottom of screen. This video would certainly help to build background knowledge for those students who may not know about Van Gogh (4:11).
