And one of the best books I have ever read.

^Me too. One of two books with perfect musical counterparts, IMHO. The Snow Goose being the second. 

8. "Tears and Pavan" - Strawbs, Bursting at the Seams. Plenty more Strawbs tracks I really love but this album was the first I heard, and this track in particular just stays with me. Sang it to my baby girls - the pavan part, that is!

In “Be” there was so much beauty in a so short title, too
Since one its themes regards the word “if”…

Again – there are many Camel tracks that I love, both instrumental and sung. This has always stood out for me, and it can stand alone, whereas I do think that it’s difficult to pick out specific tracks on some of their albums – they need to be heard in their entirety. This is stunning IMHO … (instrumental) ...

9. "Ice" - Camel, I Can See Your House From Here

I would happily wager that you could hold an entire conversation in lyrics MH. I had to Google that one!

I’m convinced Don McLean must have been reading Irving Stone’s Lust for Life when he was inspired to write this incredible song. A wonderful, eye-opener of a book that transports you to another time and place - so important in revealing the mental anguish and pain behind the genius of van Gogh and bringing his works to life on the page in all their tortured, colourful glory. It’s a biographical novel so there is artistic licence, of course, but Stone himself was a genius with a gift for reanimating characters from centuries past to the extent that one feels as though one might have known them.

McLean’s is an equally lyrical outpouring - a painting in words – he wrote it spontaneously and in next to no time at all – it just flowed out of him. So fascinating, the spark that ignites imagination …  

11. "Vincent" - Don McLean, American Pie
