List Rules Vote for your favorite Van Morrison songs, not just singles and hits.

List of the best Van Morrison songs, ranked by fans like you. Prolific, passionate and highly eclectic, Van Morrison is a singer-songwriter like no other. Morrison has a famously expressive voice, and is known for blending R&B, folk and jazz into one singularly beautiful sound. This list includes all of Van Morrison's major singles like "Brown Eyed Girl" and "Moondance," but true fans know that many of the Irish singer's greatest songs weren't hits. In fact, while his 1968 record Astral Weeks sold poorly when it was first released, it's now regularly included on lists of the greatest albums ever.

Music videos and lyric videos are included next to each song name, so if you haven't heard it you can listen to it right here on this page. Is one of your favorite Van Morrison songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top. If the order of this list bothers you, then take matters into your own hands and create a new version by re-ranking this list. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
