Summer love in Austin Texas . . . With Moondance Michael inside my soul. Never forgotten after 30 years, this song still brings me peace.

Of course this is one of his greatest songs, but I have heard this and Brown Eyed Girl so much over the years that I wish some of his other songs like Into the Mystic were more celebrated.

Listen to this song sober, then later on about six months down the road one night when your hammered drunk and you'll be up dancing maybe spinning and then lay down and pass out. Like an ol speak easy feeling.
