Dear people at Mudcat,

I hope that you'd be willing to help me in a search for a song which has cost me a considerable amount of nerves, as I have not been able to identify it, and neither could anybody else I asked.

I heard the song in question at the end of 1986/beginning of 1987 while studying in Liverpool on the radio in a folk rock program.

Features: male voice, a bit hoarse, a bit fragile, like a baritone Nick Drake, very serious, downcast, only guitar for accompiment

Here are some snatches of the lyrics:

it begins with

"tongue-tied and starry-eyed, and here I go again"

the chorus goes like this:

"Jodie (?), I'll show you the van Gogh-Museum and I' paint your picture on every screen"

If you could help me to identify the song and the singer, or tell me who could help me do so, I'd be over the moon.

Lots of thanks in advance,

yours,

Martin-Christoph Just > > > > >

I know someone who is searching for a song (and its singer) which includes the lyrics...

"tongue-tied and starry-eyed, and I here I go again"

chorus: Jodie(?) I'll show you the Van Gogh Museum and I'll paint your picture on every screen"

If you have any idea what this is can you please email martin-christoph.just@stud.uni-hannover.de

The song was written by Kieran Halpin a brilliant singer songwriter from Ireland who has never quite got the recognition that I think he deserves.

The last I heard Kieran was living in Scotland.

The song was recorded on one of Kieran's earlier albums (I think called the man who lives in bottles, but I'm not sure). These albums were recorded on the Celtic Music label ! and are I think no longer available. There is a new book of Kieran's songs published byh Maartin Alcock (of Fairport Convention) who has done a lot of duet work with Kieran. I have no idea if this song is in the book, but I suspect it is because it's definitely one of his best.

According to Kieran Halpin's web site, the title of this song is "Van Gogh Museum," and he wrote it in 1976 while he was living in Amsterdam, and working in Holland and Germany with Jon Strong. But the web site doesn't even tell what album it's on! Couldn't find the words, either.

Kieran has a song called "Yellow, like Van Gogh", is this the one you're searching for?

Kieran Halpin - Van Gogh Museum

Tongue-tied and starry-eyed and here you go again
You on your ceaseless search to make amends

Auditions ambitions they hang on every bend

You on your ceaseless search for a better friend

Dark ways those cafes just where do you belong?

Learn a new language and carry on

Long nights and red lights and how could you go wrong?

Learn a new system and move along

Jody, I'll show you the Van Gogh Museum

and I'll paint your picture in every scene

Full moons and small rooms and plan your time ahead

Sometimes you know there's nothing in your head

Raised voices two choices rise or stay in bed

Sometimes you feel you might be better dead

Jody, I'll show you the Van Gogh Museum
and I'll paint your picture in every scene

He may be no dancer there may be no way

He was never a chancer but if you push him he may

Too used to losing but it's all in his mind

Leaning on boozing he's playing for time

You and I Gemini so hard to begin

My odds getting longer my chances slim

And mistakes and retakes lord I realize my sin

I've got nothing to lose but I've got lots to win

Jody, I'll show you the Van Gogh Museum
and I'll paint your picture in every scene

Jody, I'll show you the Van Gogh Museum
and I'll paint your picture in every dream


The above is from

and you can hear the authors take of the song there, too.
