Van Morrison's Brown Eyed Girl Performed Slower In A Minor Key

May 24, 2019


This is a video of musician Marc Durkee performing Van Morrison's classic 'Brown Eyed Girl', but slowed down and in minor key for MAXIMUM SADNESS. Although, thanks to the marvel of modern Youtube technology, I found that playing the video at 1.75X speed makes it sound similar to the original tempo, just with the minor key difference. You know, hearing this song always reminds me of someone I used to know. "Awww, GW -- a former lover?" God no, this jackass at a bar I used to go to who would play it on the jukebox nonstop, completely ruined it for me.

Keep going for the video, as well as the original song for reference.

Thanks again to Jess, who agrees that, while laughter is the best medicine, sometimes you just need to take a handful of cry.

    Hearing this performed this slow makes me want to hear it played on a harpsicord in a baroque or another mideval/renaissance style...

    odd, it makes me want to accidentally ram a pound of coke into his every body orifice.

    This is exactly what a song about butt sex needed....

    I can't believe I actually wondered if this was true enough to Google this.

    It's not.

  • James Mcelroy

    he says brown eyed girl, not brown eye girl.

    Pffft. Next you're going to tell me Bryan Adam's Summer of '69 is not about synchronized oral sex.
