Listening to Van the Man

It always gets me, the lyrics to Coney Island, by Van Morrison. This is mainly because of a youth spent riding along this same coast on various motorbikes, generally alone, always enjoying the view and the peace.

As the man says: “And all the time going to coney island I’m thinking,
Wouldn’t it be great if it was like this all the time.”
