Van Morrison is just one of the many musicians who have consistently released incredible music – releasing jaw-dropping records. We look back at the 5 Lyrics From Van Morrison. 

5. Into The Music

Into The Music is featured on Van Morrison’s 1970 album Moondance as well on his 1974 live album, It’s Too Late To Stop Now. He recorded the song along with the album tracks at A&R Recording Studios in New York. The lyrics are as mysterious as the mysticism as Morrison touched on throughout the song.

“I want to rock your gypsy soul

Just like way back in the days of old

Then magnificently we will float into the mystic”


4. Dweller On The Threshold

Morrison’s sense of melody and lyrics can be heard from this song, Dweller On The Threshold, is the perfect definition to Morrison’s spiritual groove that defines his music. 

“I’m a dweller on the threshold

As I cross the burning ground

Let me go down to the water

Watch the great illusion drown”


3. Wavelength

Van Morrison took his spiritual groove to another level when he recorded this commercial success, and everyone loves the song. Wavelength is the perfect song to listen to for a long drive.

“This is a song about your wavelength

And my wavelength, baby

You turn me on

When you get me on your wavelength

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah” 


2. Brown Eyed Girl

An obvious choice to pick for Van Morrison’s best lyrics. Brown Eyed Girl not just offers a Motown, British Invasion sound, but the lyrics take you to another bouncing trip. And you surely have heard it a million times.

“Do you remember when we used to sing

Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da

Just like that

Sha la la la la la la la la la la te da, la te da”


1. Moondance

The morning song, the evening song, the dancing song, and the best driving song. It’s also the spiritual song to those who worship Van Morrison. And definitely, one of the best classic rock songs ever released. 

“Can I just have one more moondance with you, my love

Can I just make some more romance with you, my love”
