Sir George Ivan "Van" Morrison, OBE (generally known as Van Morrison) (born 31 August 1945) is a Grammy Award-winning artist from Belfast, Northern Ireland. He's a singer, songwriter, author, poet, and multi-instrumentalist, who has been a professional musician since 1958.

Featuring his characteristic growl - a unique mix of folk, blues, Irish, scat, and Celtic influences - Morrison is widely considered one of the most unusual and influential vocalists in the history of rock and roll. He has received numerous music awards during his career, including six Grammy Awards (1996–2007); inductions into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame (January 1993), the Songwriters Hall of Fame (June 2003), and the Irish Music Hall of Fame (September 1999); and a Brit Award (February 1994).

    Well, it's a marvelous night for a moondance
    With the stars up above in your eyes

    And the heaven opens everytime she smiles
    And when I come to her that's where I belong

    Lyrics
    Half a mile from the county fair
    And the rain came pouring down
    Me and Billy standing there
    With a silver half a crown
    Hands are full of the fishing rod and the tackle on our backs
    And It Stoned Me  -  923,744 plays
