Although many consider Brown Eyed Girl  as Van Morrison’s signature song, Morrison actually thinks that he has “about 300 songs that are better.” Nevertheless, Brown Eyed Girl remains popular and continues to receive television and radio airplay decades after its initial release. BMI presented Morrison a Million-Air Award for 11 million radio plays of the song, which was Morrison’s first single as a solo artist. Moreover, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame included Brown Eyed Girl on its list of 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll. Morrison had two other songs on this list. Along with Brown Eyed Girl, the Hall of Fame also added Madame George (1968) and Moondance (1970).
