"Into the Mystic" is a song written by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison and featured on his 1970 album Moondance... The song has a soothing, calm, medium-paced tempo. It is among the most popular songs doctors listen to while operating, according to a survey made by BBC.

The album "Moondance" was released on 28 February 1970, 40 years ago.

It is light, spiritual, full of soul, jazzy, brilliant. It is a marvelous, fantabulous masterpiece, and my favorite album.

I have every reason to celebrate today [smile].

Cheers!

The Beatles...Ha! [smiley-talk039]

Why doesn't Van like "Brown Eyed Girl?" I once had a table of guys (University days) sing that  to me. I was so embarrassed, I walked away. They must have been very drunk. But my husband said that's what he thought the first time he saw me, he thought of that song (Lol)

I love Van Morrison and have all of his music.

I heard about the one tragedy in his life, the mother of his child dying, but not about the baby dying. That's so terrible I can't even find words. The poor man.

By 1974, Van Morrison was probably exhausted. During the past ten years, the Irish troubadour had morphed from a garage rock king (as the leader of Them) to a pop hit machine to the craftsman of such landmark albums as Astral Weeks and Tupelo Honey. His eighth album, Veedon Fleece, hit stores in late 1974, shortly after the release of those instantly accessible masterpieces — and it was greeted by a collective shrug by the rock critical establishment. Time has proven them wrong. The album is the grand culmination of Morrison's work over the past decade, combining R&B with celtic music, country and traditional rock and roll. At the center of it lies "You Don't Pull No Punches, But You Don't Push The River" — a wildly ambitious, nearly nine-minute song filled with piano, soprano saxophone and flute, where Morrison sings about the quest for the mysterious "veedon fleece" — an elusive treasure that's never quite defined. Repeated references to "William Blake and the Sisters of Mercy" may leave you scratching your head, but it's clear this album finds Morrison at the absolute top of his game. "Streets of Arklow," a tribute to the historic Ireland town, is another stunning beauty featuring Morrison singing in top form, complimented by a string section. After Veedon Fleece, a drained Morrison took the longest break of his career, not emerging until 1977. He's released many wonderful albums since, but he's never again hit the majestic heights of this one.


In two weeks time, dearest Members, I will be listening to The Man live. RAH London, row 12, seat 17. I hope the Brits do not forget to send me my ticket. I hope it does not get lost in the mail. I hope The Man feels like singing. Because, if something goes wrong, anything,... Life on Earth will Stop.
