Sigh.  I got tired of this one about seven years ago. Up until then, I couldn't wait to hear it again. DOA and DFO. Both.

Just wondering: if he wants to make love to her tonight, why can't he wait 'til the morning has come?

amazing how ignorant our generations are when it comes to Jazz vocals. Stuff like this is considered "epic"to those who never heard, ex, Billy Eckstine

It's hard to imagine how badly Van would have to behave in person, to negate the massively positive  impact of this song alone. So far he has not managed it, despite apparently trying quite hard. pxd

Their dates of birth probably have little to do with it; if anything, people born before 1970 would be more likely to be the ones who are tired of this tune.

Even the great songs can be over-played. This is one of them.

I'm sitting at work, Van Morrison is singing about making love to a woman and how she shivers and I start to feel like it would be much nicer to be home with hubby, enjoying the things that make you feel like he sings {#Hug}{#Kiss}

Doesn't stop this being a Top Tune!      

 
I did lights for a Van Morison concert in a little burg in upstate NY in the 70's and he was totally creepy. He pushed his way in, didn't speak or look at anyone, cussed out his band during the performance, put out a good set but engaged the audience zero%, finished the last chord and stormed out. Killed my taste for his music for 15 years. I s'pose there are people who think I'm a good performer as a scientist, but a creep as a person. Gotta take the long view. I listen to him a lot now that I'm an OG too.

There's a reason for that, you know.  Anywayyyyy, this is a great song, but Van doesn't really have the voice control to do it justice.  About half way through I'm sick of hearing him wander all over the place.

You need to click the cursor elsewhere on the page - outside of the ratings drop-down, before scrolling using the arrow keys, otherwise, any upward or downward commands will stay in that drop-down list.

I think I know what you mean:  there's a song rating pull-down in the uppermost frame, just left of the song artist - title. There's also one dead center on the 'second row' of frames. 

I've played with the upper rater once or twice on songs where I already had a rating in the second row rater gizmo.  Didn't seem to change anything, but maybe you have to leave the page to have it register, or maybe the upper one is a "repeater" that holds your original rating and leaves it visible when you gone on a long, rambling, relatively pointless comment as I have just done.  Because you can see the upper one when you just keep on typing blah, blah, blah, blah ...
