Something Wonderful: On Hyndford Street by Van Morrison

"On Hyndford Street where you could feel the silence
At half past eleven on long summer nights
As the wireless played Radio Luxembourg
And the voices whispered across Beechie River
And in the quietness we sank into restful slumber in silence
And carried on dreaming in God."

I listen to On Hyndford Street every day. It is sublime. Like Yeats to me.

From Morrison's Hymns to the Silence album - and the entire album resides on my iTunes app. Each cut is pure artistry.
