Van Morrison - Tupelo Honey

by Phescador • 1,952,362 views

Alright, finally a decent video of this song without somebody's girlfriend taking up the spotlight. Enjoy.

This is a glimpse of music at it's absolute best and he has put his entire soul in to it.  There will always be a debate about this, but the music of this era will be, at best, difficult to match.  There was so much passion, heart and love for the music that was being created back then.  And that passion, heart and love came from those who created it and those who had the great fortune to be around to hear it and  we were even more fortunate to have this as the foundation of our musical experiences during our formative and youthful years of life.  True beauty.

+Lizzie Sangi Hi Lizzie :) 👎 to the Northeast snow at this point only because my poor bones can't handle all this shoveling lol. 👍👍 for being blessed to grow up/old with 'our' music. I'm biased but still believe it was the best decade of talented musicians/bands. I'm also an optimist so I hope there will be an era of music like that for future generations. :))

Nostalgia, the intoxicating liquor that it is, cannot be trusted. It's a jackass of an emotion; still, who among us doesn't reach for the bottle at least a few times a day? That said, let's go on the wagon and look at Tupelo Honey soberly: it can't be done! Impossible. Tupelo Honey itself is a 55-gallon drum of nostalgia. If this were a just universe, anyone with a heart crazy enough to make out with out first true love in the front seat with the moon pitched above and the bellicose, snorting nostriled image of our honey's father peering at us in that silver moonlit night, would compose a song as perfect as Tupelo Honey. But, because it is not a just universe, most of us with hearts like that have to settle for someone else-in this case Van Morrison, doing it. We settle for listening to songs like Tupelo Honey. And the years go by and it's not the front seat of the car anymore. It's the dentists's office. The accountant's office. The funeral home. The visiting room at the state pen. Sober, grown up life. And we scream "Eff that s%^t," I want Tupelo Honey and the lush memory of the first time I cupped a breast in my hand. Waaahhh!" That's why this is a great song: because it reminds us of the times we were drunk on life.

Hi, At least someone, other than mysrelf,  has a sense of humor and some civility out there.

+Patrick Miller Good morning.  Yes, there are people who are civil.  I consider myself to be one of those people 95% of the time.  If pushed, I can fire back, but I don't get into personally insulting or attacking someone and I leave the bad language out of it.  Once you begin that, you lose any credibility you may have had and your point gets lost in all the unnecessary BS.  But I have to admit, there are some comments so inappropriate, I can't help but let a few choice remarks fly.  It shocks me at what people will say to one another and I hope it never stops shocking me.  If it does, that means I find it acceptable, which I never will.  I'm no prude, but I believe in common decency.  As for humor, I figure you have to find a laugh where ever you can.  I love a good laugh.  I read a comment the other day that said "Rap is to music what Etcha Sketch is to Art".  I got a great laugh out of that one!

Do  you remember when the summer breezes 'had a feel to them'?  When you could sleep with your window open and watch the curtains billow and sway, and a whiff of sweet flowers that had been warmed by the sun that day,... would,.... when the dew came to them in the late evening... would fill the air with something that can't be easily described... ? so close it was to being near to 'a perfect peace'... in all that was for a few moments  what 'felt' like all that should be... it was given to us as ours to long treasure, even when life was hard, we found a way to see 'good', and we 'smiled' - sometimes 'because of our life'... and other times, 'in spite of it'... Even in the times we 'were not innocent', those past days are now 'The Days of Our Innocence'... Friends, find one good memory - and 'REMEMBER'... it helps to know that we will find peace one day that will make even the best of our days - 'before'... dim in comparison... though Wisdom be the essence of what we will one day be established in....I long for a 'sweetness to life'... I want to be restored to 'the peace of innocence'... I want to simply 'be happy'... One good memory - revive something that felt 'free' within yourself... and pick your feet up a little higher and look toward the goal... here is just something I was listening to... Van Morrison - Tupelo Honey beloved... find a memory - 'and feel the breeze'... my love to each of you, sis

+MissDistarr60  Your words have done good for me today - I needed to hear from a kindred in understanding, and 'simple remembering'... thank you... ...it seems to me that sometimes music is what our spirit 'dances within'... sometime music reminds us - and we may laugh and cry all within moments of re-living what seemed, at the time of their occurring, such small events... but they move into those special places of 'cherished memories' - like little treasures... sometimes it reminds us there is still something of us left - even after we have emptied ourselves, time and again - most often for 'love'... sometimes it fills all the empty spaces... sometimes it feels like 'everything' when we feel like we have 'nothing'... music is powerful and our lives would seem to have less potential if we did not know how deeply 'we can be moved'... even if only for a moment...

Drop it smack dab in the middle of the deep blue sea She's an Angel of the first degree (the girl that is as sweet as tupelo honey) You can take all of the tea in China put in a big brown bag for me  Sail all the way through the seven oceans,.  And drop smack dab in the middle of the  deep blue sea  because she is sweet a tupelo honey, just like honey babe from the bee. She is sweet a tupelo honey, just like honey babe from the deep blue sea,  shee is sweet as tupelo honey, just like honey baby  from the bee, sheee is sweet as tupelo honey, just like honey from the bee.........SHE IS SWEET AS TUPELO HONEY, SHE'S AN, ANGEL OF THE FIRST DEGREE, Oh you know, you have to feel that love, and when you think that no one could love her/him, as much as me, (YOU) then it is so and she or him would be wise to hold on to you! This sure is a pretty love song don't you think, but if you are in love, only you could write a better love song and it wouldn't be hard!

She's as sweet a tupelo honey, she's an angel of the first degree, she's as sweet as tupelo honey just like the real thing from the bee............She sounds like Sharon McConnell from New London, Ohio, but back in the mid 60's when I loved this Angel at age 14 you couldn't put it into words. I wish Van would have done this in 1964 instead of 1971, then I could have put my feelings in words. How does Van do it over and over again, I think that he is a genius of the first degree.

Van Morrison - Tupelo Honey Traduzione: Il miele di Tupelo Puoi prendere tutto il tè che si trova in Cina metterlo in una grande borsa scura per me navigare per tutti i sette mari immergerlo giù nel fondo dell'azzurro mare Lei è dolce come il miele di Tupelo (1) lei è un angelo di prima classe Lei è dolce come il miele di Tupelo proprio come il miele delle api non puoi fermarci sulla strada verso la libertà non puoi fermarci perché i nostri occhi possono vedere uomini con qualcosa dentro, uomini duri come il granito cavalieri nell'armatura intenti nella cavalleria Lei è dolce come il miele di Tupelo lei è un angelo di prima classe Lei è dolce come il miele di Tupelo proprio come il miele delle api non puoi fermarci sulla strada verso la libertà non puoi fermarci perché i nostri occhi possono vedere uomini con qualcosa dentro, uomini duri come il granito cavalieri nell'armatura intenti nella cavalleria Lei è dolce come il miele di Tupelo lei è un angelo di prima classe Lei è dolce come il miele di Tupelo proprio come il miele delle api Tu sai che lei è giusta tu sei che lei è giusta per me lei è giusta, lei è giusta (lei è un angelo) Puoi prendere tutto il tè che si trova in Cina metterlo in una grande borsa scura per me navigare per tutti i sette mari farlo cadere in mezzo all'azzurro mare e dargli un sapore di tè Perché lei è dolce come il miele di Tupelo lei è un angelo di prima classe Lei è dolce come il miele di Tupelo proprio come il miele delle api Lei è dolce come il miele di Tupelo lei è un angelo di prima classe Lei è dolce come il miele di Tupelo Proprio come il miele, tesoro, che viene dalle api lei è la mia ragazza, tu sai che lei è quella giusta (per me ..... (1) Tupelo Honey è una qualità di miele particolarmente pregiata, prodotto con tecniche particolari nella piccola città americana di Tupelo. La canzone è una delle più celebri di Van, ed è rimasto famoso il lusinghiero giudizio di Bob Dylan "Tupelo Honey come canzone è sempre esistita, Van Morrison l'ha solo rivelata al mondo".
