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.

Well said and you are an angel in the first degree.

Thank you  so much for your kindness.  This music represents a way of life and the people who surrounded me which I miss and I hold very close to my heart.  How fortunate a small portion of the population were, to have been there  to witness a very  special moment in time.  I'm so grateful to have been included in that small number of people:)

All music is inspired to some degree, but true inspiration comes from beyond the mind. It comes from the source, the collective unconscious, god, the spirit of truth, the universal mind what ever you want to call it. It just passes through the person. For the first time we have progressed enough to know the ultimate truth of life. Nothing could be more important or worthwhile than checking the truth for yourself. Google "Truth Contest" and check out the top entry. The truth will set you free.

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.

Nice.  Have never heard of "Tupelo" before, and because no one else has, the lyrics fail from the onset.  Of course, nothing describes loving a good women to the acid generation than putting all the tea in china in a bag and dropping in the ocean...twice in one song.  This is reverent, soul-filled, beautifully sung music of utter nonsense.  The last 2 million hippy's heard this, drop a hit of acid on the like button and made it a part of the history according to hippies.

Tupelo Honey By Van Morrison You can take all the tea in China Put it in a big brown bag for me Sail right around all the seven oceans Drop it straight into the deep blue sea She's as sweet as Tupelo honey She's an angel of the first degree She's as sweet as Tupelo honey Just like honey from the bee You can't stop us on the road to freedom You can't keep us 'cause our eyes can see Men with insight, men in granite Knights in armor bent on chivalry She's as sweet as Tupelo honey She's an angel of the first degree She's as sweet as Tupelo honey Just like honey, baby, from the bee You can't stop us on the road to freedom You can't stop us 'cause our eyes can see Men with insight, men in granite Knights in armor intent on chivalry She's as sweet as Tupelo honey She's an angel of the first degree She's as sweet as Tupelo honey Just like honey, baby, from the bee You know she's alright You know she's alright with me She's alright, she's alright (she's an angel) You know she's alright You know she's alright with me She's alright, she's alright (she's an angel) You know she's alright You know she's alright with me She's alright, she's alright (she's an angel) She's alright, she's alright (she's an angel) She's alright, she's alright (she's an angel) She's alright, she's alright (she's an angel) You can take all the tea in China Put it in a big brown bag for me Sail it right around all these seven oceans Drop it smack dab in the middle of the deep blue sea Because, she's as sweet as Tupelo honey, yes she is She's an angel of the first degree She's as sweet as Tupelo honey Just like honey, baby, from the bee She's as sweet as Tupelo honey She's an angel of the first degree She's as sweet as Tupelo honey Just like the honey, from the bee She's my baby, you know she's alright She's alright, she's alright (she's an angel) She's my baby, you know she's alright She's alright, she's alright (she's an angel) She's my baby, you know she's alright She's alright, she's alright (she's an angel) Songwriters: MORRISON, VAN

+divynem wells Not so much. I never really thought of Jagger as a blues vocalist. At the time, both the Stones and Led were more into rock than blues. But as they grew both Zeppelin and the Who got into the blues more.

It just gets no better than this. Passionate songwriting, unbelievable musicianship (e.g. Ronnie Montrose's guitar, Connie Kay [of the Modern Jazz Quartet] on drums, etc). Van at his absolute peak. I wore out 3 LPs before finally getting the CD. The whole album soars.

Over my 56 years on Earth, I have had the pleasure, nay, honour is more correct of seeing Van live 5 times, beginning in 85 and the last time in 2002. He has seen me through good times, bad times, excruciatingly complicated times - He has never let me down and I guarantee that Tupelo Honey or perhaps Listen to the Lion (Live version) will be played at my wake one day so all can hear how good he was/is.

I sang this song at a karaoke bar 5 years ago and during the second time Van sang, "You can take all the tea in Chinee", the host started yelling at me because he just happened to be Chineese. When I do songs at karaoke bars, I like to duplicate what the artist sang. After explaining this to the karaoke host, he understood. It just sounds cool whether Van made a mistake in the recording studio or not. "You can take all the tea in Chinee, put it in a big brown bag for me, sail it around all these 7 oceans, and drop it smack in the middle of the deep blue sea, cause she is sweet as tupelo honey, she's an angel of the first degree, she's as sweet as tupelo honey, just like honey babe from the bee's.

Two years before Van did this song, he seen how Dylan sold his most sold album called Nashville Skyline. Both the bloods and quips bought that album, or both rock lovers and country lovers, that is the only reason why it was Dylans greatest selling album, so in 1971 Van tried to do what Dylan did. add a lot of country flavor to his great 1971 TUPELO HONEY album.  Being that Van is such a great composer he had a great LP in 1971 called TUPELO HONEY. A lot of country flavor, but that LP was an angel of the first degree.
