Van Morrison, a reference in the rock n roll history of the sixties.
The sixties were for Van Morrison very prolific years in terms of lyrics
we all remember for sure :1965 Gloria and in 1967 Brown Eyed Girl
Today we speak about 1967, the year of Grateful Dad and Sinatra with Strangers in the Night.
Van Morrison wrote this song remembering a old love story with a “brown skin” girl and gives to the song the same title.
But Van Morrison feared the censorship of one America very politicised and racist, so he decided to change the title in “brown eyed girl”
The censorship arrived anyhow with some changes in the part “we made love in the green grass” changing the verse in ” laughing and running”
Brown Eyed Girl will be released in the album ” Blowing Your Mind”
