The Ever Popular Tortured Artist Effect.
Utopia's There Goes My Inspiration is a funny song about being a sad artist. I've posted this sweet version by The Rubinoo's because the words are more discernible. Here's the original version by Utopia. And here's a nice live acoustic version by Utopia's bass player Kasim Sulton. Money verse . . .
Me and Gaugin used to party down
I was hung in the Louvre, I was Renoir's pal
Vincent van Gogh used to joke with me
Now they don't come 'round
It's all over town that the master's lost his touch
I'm so lost I can hardly hold a brush
