Everyone (Van Morrison song)
|Song by Van Morrison from the album Moondance|
|Genre||R & B|
|Label||Warner Bros. Records|
|Producer||Van Morrison and Lewis Merenstein|
The song is the fastest on the album. It is in 12/8 time and features more prominent acoustic guitar than other tracks on Moondance where the piano is the main instrument. A notable feature of the intro is a clavinet. A hard but sparse drumbeat is offset by a melody played on the flute throughout the song, including a solo after the second chorus.
Morrison has said "'Everyone is just a song of hope, that's what that is."
