 "Moondance" all time VM classic , and is the title song on his 1970 album Moondance.

Morrison did not release the song as a single until November 1977, seven and a half years after the album was released. It reached the Billboard Hot 100, charting at #92.It is the most frequently played song by Van Morrison in concert.[

         How Long Must This Been Going On

 "How Long Has This Been Going On?" is a song composed by George Gershwin, with lyrics by Ira Gershwin for the musical Funny Face in 1928.

 It is the titletrack from the twenty-fourth studio album by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison, "with Georgie Fame and Friends", released in December 1995 (see 1995 in music) in the UK. It charted at #1 on Top Jazz Albums.

In the case of tonight's episode, the results include a startlingly unusual, thoroughly jazz-based reading of Morrison's "Moon Dance" as well as a sometimes-rough but always fascinating Morrison interpretation of the standard "How Long Has This Been Going On."
The segment was taped in Los Angeles in April during a quick session that allowed no time for complex planning. "And that's the way I like it," Hancock observed. "That's how you catch the first burst of the real creative juices.(Hancock)
