Summer love in Austin Texas . . . With Moondance Michael inside my soul. Never forgotten after 30 years, this song still brings me peace.
One of the best baselines in any song
Yeah so now you know something worthless, to add variety to the rest of your knowledge which of course is relevant pertains to everything. Just trying to make your life less boring...
yeah so what
I played this song when I was in jazz band.
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.
Van...one of the most soulful white men on the planet! Moondance is the tip of his Iceberg!
bphumm
I remember listening to this song in 1972, the year of my graduation! Such a sensual song! Brings back such wonderful memories!
what the heck does it take to get to play one song by van morrison all the way thru, crazy love i have asked for for the past 30 minutes and all i get is your impressions of other stuff i might like.
Smooth Irish soul

this is not the track from how long has this been going on. This is the original.
Featured on the movie an American Werewolf in London. Great!
Nice chill out music
Dave, you seem to have an old soul. That's a good thing.
Simple but well put together nice song.
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.
Van the Man!
