“Tupelo Honey” is a popular song written by Northern Irish singer-songwriter Van Morrison and the title song from his 1971 album, Tupelo Honey. The title derives from an expensive, mild-tasting tupelo honey produced in the southeastern United States. Released as a single in 1972, it reached number forty-seven on the U.S. pop chart. The melody, which has a catchy, soulful feel to it, was borrowed from Morrison’s song “Crazy Love”, released the previous year. This same melody was later used by Van Morrison on the song, “Why Must I Always Explain?“, on his 1991 double album, Hymns to the Silence. Morrison has played “Tupelo Honey” in a medley with both “Crazy Love” and “Why Must I Always Explain?“ in concert. Read on...
