Enlightenment, don't know what it is. It's up to you, the way you think.

Large audiences did not suit my low-key approach.

You've got to separate the singer and the songs.

Laying underneath the stars Can be so much fun Especially when you're feeling good When you're with the one you love.

All the girls walk by dressed up for each other, and the boys do the boogie woogie on the corner of the street.

Van Morrison
Won't You guide me through the dark night of the soul That I may better understand Your way... Let me purify my thoughts and words and deeds That I may be a vehicle for Thee... Give me my rapture today.
Van Morrison

These days politics, religion, media seem to get all mixed up. Television became the new religion a long time back and the media has taken over.

Van Morrison
I write songs. Then I record them. And later, maybe I perform them on stage. That's what I do. That's my job. Simple. I don't feel comfortable doing interviews. My profession is music, and writing songs. I like to do it, but I hate to talk about it...Music is spiritual. The music business is not. Being famous was extremely disappointing for me. When I became famous it was a complete drag and it is still a complete drag.

I always record far more than I can use. There's probably twice as much recorded as comes out.
