03: Van Morrison – Cyprus Avenue

Posted: January 12, 2013 in Uncategorized

The song to which I had my virginity taken. Spookily, I was indeed, as Van sings in this transcendental masterpiece, “conquered in a car seat”. There is a whole chapter in the book about this farcical experience. Don’t worry – it doesn’t get too medical. Joanna (for it was she) and I are, to this day, huge pals. And Van’s Astral Weeks album (about which I could write a whole book) remains in my all-time top ten. Always will do.
