astral weeks

do you know this van morrison album?
i'll tell you what,
it is my favorite album of all time.

it was recorded in 1968.
i discovered it around 1990,
when i was nearly 20.
it was played for me on purpose
by some creative friends
who knew i would love it.
i remember them, smiling, watching me listen.
i was honestly spellbound.
it changed my summer,
and it lodged itself inside me forever.
if i had to choose just one album
to listen to for the rest of my days,
this would be it.
van morrison is amazing.
read more about astral weeks here.

i'm trying grooveshark for the first time,
but i'm having a little trouble.
fingers crossed that you can listen...
if it skips over the tracks,
try double clicking each one.
it seems to work better listening on grooveshark.
