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.
