It’s a warm but foggy day here in Florida and rain looks like it’s lurking. And on dreary, yet dreamy, days like today, my radio-in-my-head automatically tunes itself to Van Morrison. He is my favorite rainy day artist but since it isn’t technically raining (yet), one of his more dreamy songs, “Into the Mystic,” is in my head today.
I don’t know if it’s his voice, the horns, or the wave-like images that the music evokes that make this song a constant in my mind but I sure do love it. Van Morrison has a strong rating in my nostalgia-meter– his songs were always blaring at my house growing up– so maybe it’s the warm-fuzzies that make my mind hark to this song on cold (well, for Florida) days.
Here it is, the song in my head for the day, “Into the Mystic” by Van Morrison.
