If I ventured in the slipstream
Between the viaducts of your dream
Where immobile steel rims crack
And the ditch in the back roads stop
Could you find me?
Would you kiss-a my eyes?
To lay me down
In silence easy
To be born again
To be born again

From the far side of the ocean
If I put the wheels in motion
And I stand with my arms behind me
And I'm pushin' on the door
Could you find me?
Would you kiss-a my eyes?
To lay me down
In silence easy
To be born again
To be born again

There you go
Standin' with the look of avarice
Talkin' to Huddie Ledbetter
Showin' pictures on the wall
Whisperin' in the hall
And pointin' a finger at me
There you go, there you go
Standin' in the sun darlin'
With your arms behind you
And your eyes before

There you go
Takin' good care of your boy
Seein' that he's got clean clothes
Puttin' on his little red shoes
I see you know he's got clean clothes
A-puttin' on his little red shoes
A-pointin' a finger at me

And here I am
Standing in your sad arrest
Trying to do my very best
Lookin' straight at you
Comin' through, darlin'
Yeah, yeah, yeah

If I ventured in the slipstream
Between the viaducts of your dreams
Where immobile steel rims crack
And the ditch in the back roads stop
Could you find me
Would you kiss-a my eyes
Lay me down
In silence easy
To be born again
To be born again
To be born again
To be born again

In another world, darlin'
In another world
In another time
Got a home on high

Ain't nothing but a stranger in this world
I'm nothing but a stranger in this world
I got a home on high
In another land
So far away
So far away

Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven
Way up in the heaven

In another time
In another place
In another time
In another place
Uuh, yeah, mmh

In a time
In another place
In a time
In another place
In another face

Mmh, mmh, mmh

Just back from Ireland.  Walked into a pub in Cork, fire going , a pint and Van the Man on the sound system. What more can you ask for!
9 to 10 - Just because of Richard Davis' incredible bass!
Play this at my funeral.
transcendent song from a transcendental album
I got a hormone high?

Or Tom Cruise or John Travolta. What gets in to their heads?
It is truly amazing that an artist who created masterpieces like Astral Weeks could also become such a grumpy old fart who has also peddled destructive conspracy theories. But I still love him:)  Last time I saw him live was in Bilbao about 5 years ago, playing to a small audience in the pouring rain.  Best live perforance I've ever witnessed. Transcendent.

Reading this, I had to double check that I hadn’t posted it. 
Forever in my heart, very difficult to explain how much this song moves me, it's the 70's, its my childhood, it's my brother's little room in the 7 th floor in Paris, a winter morning.
Such great music sung by such an unrelenting bellend.  I do love this music.
Early morning in the dark ….Had to move this up to 9…..thank you Rp

"In the Garden" from the mentioned album is one of my Van's favourites.

I saw Mr. Morrison in Las Vegas this past year and he seemed embarrassed to be playing at Caesars Palace, like he had sold out or something. But I'll tell you I was thrilled to see him perform. It was a fantastic experience.




I saw him there too just before COVID and he was brilliant!

This is very definitely a political comment! I also grew up in Northern Ireland and, like anyone else from there, I could chose  to be either Irish or British, being eligible for either passport. So for you to imply that everyone born there is British by nationality is just wrong.

This does not sound like 1968.  It's timeless.
What a musical career - from Gloria (and Them) to this!
Just moved this from a 9 to 10. What was I thinking? I don't conceptually understand how an album like this gets birthed out of the ether, but thank the gods for this edifying album, and congrats to Van and the band of course. Magnificent

Yes, PCC is a great album as were many of his albums from the 80's, my favorite decade of his, especially "Enlightenment." Not liking his music of late, though, sorry to say. I wish he would get back to writing and performing his original material like this instead of performing tribute music from past jazz and blues artists that I personally have never heard of.  Long live Van! 
Goosebumps !

Poetic Champions Compose was gifted to me long ago and I've always counted it among my favorite albums. - Alan Watts Blues and Queen of the Slipstream among my favorites.  I got to hear him sing the latter live at MSG in 2009 - a surprise addition to the entire Astral Weeks performance.

Well, you spelled one word correctly.

Same for Beatles, Joni, and Steely Dan.
And that's ...that.

We are currently living in America's Fourth Great Awakening. The other three were accompanied by a war just as this one is. The Civil War accompanied the Second Awakening. The Culture War of the Fourth is well underway.

Start below at Wikipedia. Links to 2nd, 3rd & 4th at bottom of the page but I disagree with the page for the 4th. #4 describes a purely religious awakening. I think there is a secular awakening that began the recognition of the rights of both women and racial/ethnic minorities and, currently, the rights of gender minorities. And none of the wiki pages, unfortunately, discuss the resulting wars so I'll list them all here:
1st - American Revolution
2nd- American Civil War
3rd- The series of small wars of Imperialism/Manifest Destiny beginning with the Native Americans and culminating with the Spanish American War
4th- The Culture War
America's First Great Awakening
so imagine if your a musician, sitting in the studio, readying to record an album.

and this crazy cat comes in starts describing this song

yuor brain would just explode

Goosebumps every time.  Interesting that such a cranky bastard can make such stunningly beautiful music.
A magnificent LP.

Strictly speaking, like anyone else from Northern Ireland, he can chose to be Irish or British. He would be eligible for either passport, although if I had to guess which one he travels under I'd say British. Unless he also has American citizenship!

Why is one in ten songs on RP from Van Morrison?

Because other than the Beatles, Bob Dylan,  and Joni Mitchell ...no other rnr performer had six superb albums, back to back in about a 9 year period.  
This is one of those songs that, no matter whether it's lounging by a sunny, breezy window with a view over the rice fields of coastal Nanao to Tateyama in the distant Hida-sanmyaku or blaring over my killer soundsystem in the Chevy coming down Hwy 119 from Ned, ALWAYS BLOWS ME AWAY...

See if that noise came out of me I wouldn't have thought I was an important artist. My problem I guess.
Am I really the only one who thinks this man is a terrible whiner? This is not singing; this is whining, howling or whatever you want to name it, but not singing. Horrendous.

I love Radio Paradise and am very grateful for all this lovely music I otherwise would never have discovered, but there simply is too much of "Van I can't stand the man".

I hope Bill and Rebecca can keep the extraordinary job they are doing with RP for all eternity.

I would never want Bill to stop playing Van because of his stance on COVID but I am happy that I can hit skip whenever one of his songs comes on.  Van Morrison has been one of my desert island artists since the first time I heard him.  I have tried hard to separate the music from the man and his positions but sadly I cannot and it makes me sad.  Oddly I don't have the same visceral reaction when a Eric Clapton song come on.    


I have the same reaction when a Clapton song comes on - also Stone Roses and Verve.  I can't separate the art from the fuckwit.
I just saw Van at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, CA (Sept. 30, 2021). He was great, with a great band. In true Van fashion, he never said a word to the audience but just sang and with so much power I was truly astonished. What a solid voice still at the age of 76. He played a nice selection of old and new songs, mixing up the styles in an interesting way -- played for over 2 hours straight, and then came out for one encore. Excellent, excellent show.


I think RP should add an option to rank a song as "my favorite song of all times" that you can give only to 1 song as a user.
This song will definitely be a serious candidate

OK.

Compare his first five solo albums to Dylan's.

Wow!

This sounds quite a bit like some of my comments on other outstanding bands that I just don't "get." Van Morrison, and this song in particular, is profoundly spiritual, and that's just not some people's thing. It's healthy to have different people prefer different things. 
“I want to enjoy this song but also make sure I don't help Van make another penny. It's hard when a great artist goes so bad.” Perhaps you could could rank all artists throughout history so I know which artists it’s ok to like? Or maybe separate their art from the person (or your opinion about the person)?
A great opener to a great album. One of my favorites of all time. However, I am so conflicted about Van, it's like enjoying an old Woody Allen movie or a Bill Cosby routine. The art hasn't changed, but it's impossible to like the artist.

I want to enjoy this song but also make sure I don't help Van make another penny. It's hard when a great artist goes so bad.
If not for the vocals I would be fine with it, oh well. At least a lot of people seem to be into it.
Actually the song that turned me into a Van Morrison fan!

They don't seem to be to Van, whose music is almost completely apolitical and just about without religiosity. Some of his best work is with the Chieftains, formed in Dublin in 1962. His ancestry runs through Ulster Scots. I wouldn't call him British.

This is not a "...problem." Either you like an artist or a song or you don't. I don't understand this impulse to  rate everything and establish some consensus as to what is best and what is worst. It is all so subjective. You can have it all and you can choose whatever you like.
This is one of the many reasons why i love RP and non commercial radio, deep album dives

Yeah...but what about: St Dominic's Preview,  Hardnose the Highway, and Veedon Fleece?

I would do naked cart wheels down the street, if RP would ever play songs from these albums.  

   
Fun fact: in Wikipedia, you could switch Van Morrison's main photo with Elvis Costello's, and few people would notice 
To each their own. I'm just not a fan of his voice.

I'm not sure if you had to be in the experience when this came out to have enjoyed it, but Van Morrison's music has not aged well.
No matter what is said, I'll always love this song, with all its instruments. So original. Flute, violin...

Thank you.



Easy 10 by the way.
A very moving piece of music.
Definetly one of my favorite music pieces 
I always heard "puttin' on his leatherette shoes" which seems very Van Morrison. 
Top marks to the arranger too. DIVINE. 
I've seen Van M live, he didn't smile much, it was a wonderful night!

Okay, I'm very bitter about the cost of train fares in the UK, and maybe this isn't a great example. But at what point does your success reach a point where you owe your fans something over and above what they've paid for?

Also, great song, great poetry.
 
Thanks for the 'similar-to-what-I-was-going-to-say' reply, roob!  And for me, in a more general sense, folks can expect ANYTHING from ANY ONE - it's the expectation that ultimately lets the 'fan' down when the 'artist' doesn't deliver.  So for instance, with Van the Man, it's his music that folks like, not his charming personality.  A fan can attempt to reach out and connect and if/when that attempt fails, the fan shouldn't decide to throw away his albums to spite the musician.  Who knows what that person is going through right then and there.  I'm rambling incoherently now so I'll go back to doing my (boring) job and listening to RP on my phones.....Long Live RP!!

I dig Van, but not when he does stuff like this. The band plays wispy improv on a two chord progression while Van improvises (apparently) over top, until it all fades out. Doesn't do it for me. Boring.

Is it time to be born again?
