Title: Apparition in Las Vegas.
Post by Kevin Cryan on Today at 18:59
Fisun Güner, an art critic and visual arts editor for the award-winning online arts journal The Arts Desk (theartsdesk.com) has published an article last Sunday listing some of the pop and rock legends who inspired fellow musicians to pen compositions about them.

Listed: Pop tributes to pop icons
Pop and rock legends who have served as muse to fellow musicians

Leonard Cohen sang, somewhat indiscreetly, about Janis Joplin “giving head” on his unmade bed, Bob Dylan penned a song to his hero Woody Guthrie, and Don McLean famously sang “the day the music died” about Buddy Holly. The list of pop tributes to pop icons – whether the subject is a distant hero, a dead lover or a good friend – is long. If one were to compile a list of all the songs written about Elvis that list alone would exceed the number below (as it is, I’ve pushed the boat out by including 4 Elvis-inspired songs among the 14, including one penned by Clive James during his folk music heyday with Pete Atkin – who knew?).

It's wonderful to see an Atkin/James song get media attention. I have a confession to make--the youtube video in the link is mine. The photos are a bit literal-minded when it comes to illustrating the lyrics, but I hope the video does a bit of justice to the song.
