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' http://i73.photobucket.com/albums/i208/ktsuyoshi/b...
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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BFuFUEgZ2k
good stuff so far.
Gothic Princess, neat
Sarah, nice artist i will check him out.
Shizzle Bizzle! i heart bansky!
and check out this site of for street art.
Darth Maul (Is A Johnny Reb) ahh, starry night, i tripped out during 'astronomy domine', also, i saw 'starry night' in amsterdam, tripped out then too, but for other reasons though.
Ana Maria, shoot, wish you had a bigger image, because that looks cool.
Ladytron, wow, the real 'marylin manson'
and dali's 'Metamorphosis of Narcissus'

Emily! your art link didn't work, manet or monet? but love the sigur ros song.

Justice D., i saw guernica in person and it is a very wonderful painting, one of my favorites. i also read the lyrics to the 'brand new' song and don't know why they called it guernica either. thanks though.
Ana Maria, look what i found, your painting. and it is beautiful.

Fantastic question P. Wall, really got me thinking
Last Exit (warning-noisy free jazz)
Chaotic, exciting and somewhat antisocial.
Cocteau Twins (dreampop)
John Everett Millais
I stole this idea from a poster on Youtube who paired stills of pre-Raphaelite paintings with some Twins music. I had to look all this info up, I know very little about paintings. Just went with the one that I thought fit the song...
Stooges (Shake Appeal)
Vampirella # 36 cover art by Sanjulian
This made for an excellent match when I was 13 or so. Probably seems tame by today's standards, but it was the next best thing to my buddy's tree fort with the Playboy wallpapering :)
One last one...
Shhh...I don't want to spoil the punchline...Source(s): I know what I like? (the phrase that makes all artists roll their eyes)

Artsy-fartsy is not a bad thing. It actually means someone who is artistic. It wouldn't really apply to you because you cant draw or paint. It's not a bad thing though, people say that out of a envy kinda way. I love to draw and paint, It's my passion, my Friend Say's it to me all the time and she wishes she had that talent.

P. Wall - FYI - I love Basquiat - thanks for giving him Props :)
btw -- Did you know, when you spell-check "Basquiat" - you get "Biscuit" - hmmmm... oh well...
Okay this picture is framed insided a brown cover from Yessongs - the first Yes live album -
However - for My Song Pick to make sense, the picture is repeated on the inside cover, only with a Person sitting on Top of the Post on the right -
To see this Picture - You have to scroll half-way down, on this page to see what I'm saying -
SONG - Whenever I look at this Picture, I think of the song -
"Watcher of the Skies" by Genesis
EDIT - Thank you, everybody, for so many Great Pictures!! :)

Holy Smuckers, I asked a question like this a billion years ago, well, that's an exaggeration : P
I guess great minds think alike :0 )
Oswaldo Guayasamin's The Scream:
reminds me of King Crimson's 21st Century Schizoid Man
Shizzle Bizzle!: I LOVE Banksy! For some odd reason, some of his street art reminds me of the Smiths, I have no idea why.

THE two most cherished things in my life in a way, art&music!
Ok, this is one of my favourite artists, Ron English [he's amazing]
So, I'll go with, 'Dude Looks Like A Lady' - Aerosmith
And, I'll have to do another..Salvador Dali is my favourite artist of all time. Ever.
So, here's one of his works,
and I'll pick White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane, because looking at one of his paintings is like being on some magical drug [or as if HE was on some magical drug whilst painting it :D]
War - Edwin Starr
EDIT: I love Bansky he's amazing!!Source(s): Super super fantabulous question!

*not the actual music video but the only clip I could find
3) just beautiful
and I love The Velvet Underground!!
glad you like it, yours was awesome too!. Sigur Rós are from Iceland and the artwork is also from an art collaboration (kind of a side project of the lead singer) from Iceland called Riceboy Sleeps. They are so unique and beautiful-I love their sound. These are some of my favorite clips!

sorry, couldn't find a great picture of this piece
"Gust of Wind" by Lucien Levy-Dhurmer
I think the song "Legend Land" by Leaves' Eyes goes well with this painting because they both have an epic and beautiful feel to them... I really don't have a good answer I just think they go together well.
wow, great version! Way better than the one I found.

The Work Of Art
If You look at the painting and then listen to the song, the connection will be crystal clear.
Great Question P Wall.

This makes me think of Drunken Lullabies by Flogging Molly
I'm not sure what it's titled, but it's painted by Picasso
It reminds me of Drunken Lullabies because the song is loud and fast paced, and so is most of Picasso's work (in my opinion). Well, a painting can't be fast paced but it has that same feeling. Also, this particular painting has alot of clovers in it and the members of Flogging Molly take pride in Irish. Clovers are associated with Ireland.

I was out all day, but I was super excited to answer this question, as it's a neat concept.
You didn't specify which type of visual artworks you would accept, so I hope you will give me a bit of leeway on my first one:
And its song:
(Kindly observe the mud and dirt--and yes, I know this song has been mentioned by me before this very evening--I apologize for that--the other question was influenced by my planned answer to this one.)
And its companion image:
And yet another song (and one of my very favorites of all time):
With its companion image:
And the final one:
And its companion image, which is, again, a photograph:
(I have to explain a bit on the last one--the bass line is so prominent in "M", and it always reminds me of Sid, as he "played" bass--also, the line, "Take a step, move in time, but it's always back," always, always reminds me of the two of them--in the end the only thing they did right was the way they loved each other--everything else they tried just set them back further.)
