My last ever record request is a Van Morrison song at my funeral. My party, my tunes. Van’s music has been the soundtrack to many great moments, so it’s only right that he’s there for the finale.

It’s hardly an original choice. Into The Mystic has taken a lot of souls over that bridge; a song that leads us from the regular world into the vaporous other. Like the best records, it invites you to give way, to surrender to something you might sense but can’t ever comprehend.
