Music Video: Van Morris – You Don’t Pull No Punches But You Don’t Push the River

Veedon Fleece

I doubt that any radio station would play this Van Morrison song today.  For one thing, it’s nearly nine minutes long.  For another, it doesn’t fall neatly into any particular genre (Celtic inspired symphonic soul tinged ballad, perhaps).  It’s lyrics are obtuse, having something to do with a woman growing up and William Blake and The Eternals.  Still, it’s one of my favorite pieces of music.  So I hope you can take the time out of your day to discover it, or if you already know it, to experience it again.
