Them – Mystic Eyes

This powerful song builds up and lead singer Van Morrison takes over. Van’s voice and the bass are hypnotic. It was the first song on the first album by Them…named Angry Young Them released in1965. It was written by Van Morrison who would in the future use the word Mystic in a few more songs.

The song peaked at #33 in the Billboard 100 but didn’t chart in the  UK. Van has said the band was improvising in the studio and the song was born.

Mystic Eyes

One Sunday mornin’
A-we went walkin’
Down by, the old graveyard
The mornin’ fog
I looked into
A-yeah, those mystic eyes

Her mystic eyes
Mystic eyes
Mystic eyes
Mystic, eyes
Mystic eyes
Mystic eyes
Oh, the mystic eyes
Ooh
