As I painted this still life, the song Panama Hat by Eric Bibb was buzzing around my head. And that got me thinking of songs with artists names in the title. There are probably dozens about art in general ( like Art School by The Jam) but I wanted to create a YouTube playlist of just those that name checked an artist. I came up with these off the top of my head but I would have liked to have found a few more. I’m sure they must be out there. Please tell me if you have any favourites I’ve missed.
When I Dream of Michelangelo, Counting Crows
Pablo Picasso, The Modern Lovers
Painting by Chagall, The Weepies
Andy Warhol, David Bowie
Vincent, Don McClain
The Mark Rothko Song, Dar Williams
Salvador Dali’s Garden Party, TV Personalities
