I’m watching a drama documentary about Van Gogh. I decided to try and do a quick study of one of the women from ‘the potato eaters’.
The documentary is about Vincent Van Gogh. It is by Alan Yentob and stars Benedict Cumberbatch. It is about Van Gogh’s life and creativity. His mental health and the art he created. It’s a BBC documentary and might be available to see. I’m enjoying it.
I was bought up in the 1960s so although I was there I don’t remember a lot about the Beatles – I was too young.
But even now after over 50 years if a Beatles song comes on the radio or TV I can pretty much sing along with the lyrics.
I remember hearing them, some of my favourites are:
Love me do
Can’t buy me love
Eight days a week
There are others but I’m useless at remembering names of songs!
I loved their harmony, I loved their funny ways, I loved their experimental music as they evolved.
I’m just watching the Ron Howard documentary about them and it’s bringing a few memories back but as I say because I was a child I missed anything about them on late night TV so I’m learning a lot from the documentary.
