    Contrary to popular belief, not everyone mimed on Top Of The Pops, as proven here…

  • CrimsonRunnerToJesus:

    I don’t personally believe in God, but I think this is a beautiful song. And I think the fact that there is music like this, this positive, is a great thing! Long live Van and Cliff, and may your message get across to as many people as possible

    Van Morrison=Genius

  • QueenOfAllReadia:

    Nothing gives (the concept of) God a bad name (two black eyes, and a sucking chest wound), nor separates humans from “God,” like organized religion. I hate them all. But because of a near death experience as a child, nothing is more important to me than my relationship with “God.” I actually like a lot of “religious” music, especially gospel, and this has been my favorite morning wake-up song since it was released. A few times through and I’m bouncing and happy, ready for the day ahead. LOVE IT!

  • stratoreverb:

    Actually this pairing for this tune is really a good match in a way. From what I have learned about both singers is that they have religious backgrounds. Van has some connections with Jehovahs Witnesses and so does Cliff. However neither are affiliated with the JW’s. I believe Cliff is affiliated with a Church and has a faith based in Christianity. Not sure of Van’s current status but obviously he sings the song with soul as though he believes in the Christ as well.

    That’s what years of grog does to you.
    He’s sober now but wasn’t for some time. I soooo love Van the Man. xx

    Been a long time since I’ve seen Van do anything in performance other than stand behind the mic with tehe sunglasses, hat, and guitar. Fun.

    Van and Stevie? Sure fooled me.

  • bobbystormont:

    If you want to know the difference between a great singer and a good singer, this is exhibit A. Richard is a good singer, but he’s never been great. Morrison is great, even though, on some other occasions, he’s not even good!
