A Brown-Eyed Girl’s Sunrise

When I was a teenager, the song “Brown-Eyed Girl”,  by Van Morrison was always a favorite.  Not only did it have good lyrics and a great tune, but it was about a BROWN-EYED girl! It seems that blue eyes get all the attention, and being a brown-eyed girl, I was tickled that there was finally a song about “us”.

It was (and continues to be) one of those songs that require that the radio volume be turned up immediately as soon as you realize it’s playing.

And what, you may be wondering, does the song “Brown-Eyed Girl” have to do with Thursday morning’s sunrise?

Think about it: “in the misty morning fog with you….my brown-eyed girl….”

And now, we’ll all be singing that song for the rest of the day.  You’re welcome.

  1. You’re right. Songs are easily planted in my head and now “Brown-Eyed Girl” will be stuck there all day. That’s okay. I’ve always loved that song.
    I’m not a brown-eyed girl, really, (they’re brown and green) but who ever sang about hazel-eyed girls?

  2. Always heard that brown eyes were dominant…well, why do both my girls have green/blue/purple (depends on what color they’re wearing!) eyes. But, hey, those two boys remained true to their ‘brown-eyed’ Mama!! Yep, we’ll all have Van Morrison singing in our heads today!

  3. You make me remember my sophomore roommate in college who loved that song and “Barbara Ann”…that was her name. So I begin my day carrying that song “Brown-eyed Girl” in my head. Thank you.

  4. I just thought of the eyes that were seeing and sharing all these amazing sunrise and sunset pics with us!! One of the coolest thing about blogging is seeing pieces of the world through another’s eyes ~ and learning about it. I love your corner of the world!

    From one brown eyed girl to another “love that song”. Thanks for the pics too. Your right it all goes together. Have a good weekend.

  15. I sang it to my wife, a couple weeks after we started dating. She had never heard the song before. But she’s young…. and home-schooled. She’s now a quasi- Van Morrison fan!

  16. Like you, I and I think most all of us brown-eyed girls appreciated that song and hold it dear to our hearts. Your sunrise photos are breath-taking. 🙂
