Originally released as the title track to Morrison's third album of 1970, "Moondance" gained much of its popularity as a staple of FM radio back when the FM stereo band was still in its infancy and 'audiophile snobs' were the only kids on the block. "Moondance" took 7 years to finally be released as a single in the U.S. in 1977 as more jazz influences were finding their way into the American pop music consciousness. By virtue, "Moondance" exudes an air of sophisticated cool/pop/jazz 'smooth' that imbeds itself into the listeners sense of rhythm and flow. The acoustic piano arrangement, enhanced by a bassline that seemingly takes 'a light and leisurely stroll through the park' is the perfect accompaniment to Van's smokin' cool vocal chops. Every single aspect of this number from the aforementioned musical instruments, to that sexy sax and captivating flute, resonate with a vibrancy and swing which appeals to the part of our psyche that just begs to be sportin' a short brimmed black fedora and dark shades. I'm pretty confident and can just about guarantee that whatever plastic instrument you play in RB3, if you appreciate the feel of this song,....you're definitely gonna love playing it!
