Forgotten Favorites: Van Morrison And “Have I Told You Lately”
Have I told you lately that I love you? But, of course, I do.
Built on the same framework as “Someone Like You,” “Have I Told You Lately” was actually written by [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Van Morrison[/lastfm] as a prayer, though it’s long-since become one of the world’s most widely played wedding love songs.
All its other positive (and to some, negative) points aside, like the words and the melody, for example, it’s the string arrangement that makes this song a favorite for me. That, and Neil Drinkwater’s brilliant paino solo.
