Saturday’s Songs – Have I Told You Lately and Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison

February 1, 2014

In 1989, when my husband and I were busy with our first child, who was then three, and expecting our second, Van Morrison released Have I Told You Lately in his Avalon Sunset album. This song played over and over in my heart for the next twenty years. It was apropos to my marriage and to my gratitude to “the One” for the blessings of my family life – imperfections and all.

This song stirs in me a compilation mood of all things both joyful and melancholy about my human existence.

If you pay attention to my Saturday’s Songs long enough, you’ll realize I came of age during a particularly vibrant time in music history. I always harken back to those influences in Saturday’s Songs.

Here’s one of the first Van Morrison songs I heard, Brown Eyed Girl, way back in the late 60s when I was in the first years of being a teenager, and a brown-eyed girl at that.
