Van Morrison: Almost Independence Day

Weekend Music

I was thinking about this song yesterday and complaining to myself that I couldn't hear it, because I only have it on LP and I still haven't replaced the needle that I stupidly broke a couple of months ago. Then I remembered YouTube. I think it's best heard in the dark or at least in dim light (you don't need to be able to see the "video," it's just that picture of Van)—it's a lot easier to see the water and the boats and the fireworks that way. The song is ten minutes or so long. Happy Fourth of July to everyone, whether or not it's your Independence Day—I mean, you can have a happy day anyway.

Thanks for this. I played it four times.

That adds up to a lot of time. Glad you enjoyed it.
