The Moondance essays – Track 5 Side 1 – Into the Mystic
This idea sprung from here.
And I wanna rock your gypsy soul
Just like way back in the days of old
Then magnificently we will float
Into the mystic
--Into the Mystic
(until just now I always thought the line was
”magnificently we will FLOW…”)
You learn something new everyday.
Here’s another. In a BBC poll "Into the Mystic" was named as one of the most popular songs for surgeons to listen to while performing operations. I don't know how I feel about this. The song is incredibly soothing. I don't dispute that. But how does this work? Is the song on repeat? If not, is the playlist all Van? If so, what comes next? I don't want the doctor to be completely zen and in the zone.....and then "Gloria" or "Mystic Eyes" comes crashing through the speakers, causing the guy to get excited and nick an artery or something.
