Van Morrison began his career as a gritty and raw vocalist with Them. So it was a surprise when “Brown Eyes Girl” was released during the summer of 1967. It was a bright and catchy pop/rock song with one of the smoothest vocals of his career. It would quickly become the second bigest single hit of his career, reaching number ten on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart.
Van Morrison would go on to produce some of the most creative music in rock history. His expolrations of the myths and legends of his home country sold millions of albums and would enable him to be elected to The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame during 1993.
“Brown Eyed Girl” remains one of the more pleasant stops during his career.
