Death # 8 Van Morrison

From Van Morrison's debut album Blowin' Your Mind, released in 1967. Its first track is Brown Eyed Girl, reputedly about heroin use rather than a brown eyed girl and shortly thereafter shifts to this, possibly among the darkest and most disturbing songs ever recorded about the moments just imminent to the arrival of the Grim Reaper. Ten minutes, not all of which are jammed with lots happening but certainly not something to listen to if you're feeling spooked or if you're recently bereaved. Much of the rest of the record is slightly more upbeat.
