work of art and a song to match, lets get artsy fartsy?

1) find a work of art. (post link to image)

2) find a song that you think fits the art. (post link if you can)

3) explain why you paired them up.

(don't worry if you don't know much about art, i do know art, don't let that intimidate you, and it doesn't require you to have knowlegde of the art or artist, like mine does)

here is mine:

this 'untitled' painting is by 'jean-michel basquiat'

basquiat was funded by andy warhol and died of a heroin overdose, so i think 'the velvet underground's' (who warhol also managed) and their song 'heroin' would fit.
