Song of the Day: Brown Eyed Girl
Today’s song is Brown Eyed Girl by Van Morrison.
This one is from the late sixties, and my mom really likes it. She introduced it to me when I was little.
The lyrics take center focus, but the guitar and drums have a pleasant interlude.
In the misty morning fog with our, our hearts a-thumping and you. My brown-eyed girl.
Nostalgia. I think that’s the central focus of this song. Exploring memories, expressing adoration, etc.
The second half of this song becomes a bit melancholy, given that the singer is alone.
All he has are the memories. Thankfully, this track serves as a reminder of them.
