Play the Bublé version, surely?  Just tricking.  Not really.

Sweet. A cryer. My first real girlfriend with this as background music. Moondance, indeed.

This is one of my all time favorite albums/cd... and I picked it up for less than $10 at Target a few years back. The boybriend of the 70's had the original.

What a strange combo of artists to make that point with. Van and the Dead are nothing alike, not to me. I'm a massive Van fan, don't care for the Grateful Dead at all. But I take your point nonetheless.

Every song sounds the same, boring.

To each there own I guess.  
 

I'm inclined to agree.  Save for "Moondance", there really wasn't one other song I liked by him.  Guess it was the voice, or something.

If "van-the-man" were not so damn ugly,
he could be a superstar to any public!

One word from him has 100 times the spirit and soul
than this next-to-ridiculous pony-band guy!

Some of the other artists who have recorded the song are: Brian McKnight, Paul Carrack,<7> Rita Coolidge,<7> Helen Reddy, Rod Stewart, Jason Manns with Jensen Ackles, and also Cassandra Wilson on Van Morrison's 1994 tribute album, No Prima Donna: The Songs of Van Morrison.

His voice sounds very different than usual on this song. Much sweeter, more melodic and legato. James Joyce with a voice, a true genius.

Most of his music is classic. His voice, and the passion with which he shapes his music, is very enjoyable. Moondance is one that I've always enjoyed, and led me to the rest of his body of work, such as this.

I forgot two of my all-time favorite Van Morrison songs -- "Into the Mystic" and "It Stoned Me" cattgirl813 wrote:
Love "Moondance," but not the way he sings it. "Brown-Eyed Girl" sends me screaming from the room no matter who sings it. I love this song in practically any form, even Brian McKnight's oversung version. Something about Van's voice, especially in full belt, disagrees with me. Not sure what it is, but there's a high irritant factor I pick up. That quality is not present in his performance of this song. He's nicely controlled and understated. Thanks for asking!

What about the 2 or 300 other songs by Van that are just as good or better (if not as 'classic') as any of these three? Perhaps more than any other living artist, Van Morrison's music deserves a little bit of effort beyond just picking up on whatever the music business has decided to send out over the airwaves. By the way for a moment I thought it said Northern Ireland under Eutychus's name and I was really wondering how they could make a statement like that! But now I see it's just Mary Land.

Moondance and Brown-eyed Girl are great but over-played. Crazy Love has more heart & soul.
