Am I doing this right?
Yes to every single one of these, though I hadn't heard that first one before (the live version I mean).

Might be one of Clarence's best solos right there, IMO.

I don't know what to say to people who don't think it's Van's best. Like, Moondance? Really not close. It's otherworldly; no other album sounds like that.
I think it was Phil Lynott who said Astral Weeks is the only true classic album there is.

It's fantastic. And the regular CD (the one on sale since the early 90's) doesn't even come close to the vinyl release from 5 years ago. It's really worth buying this vinyl edition.

Beside You and Slim Slow Slider are my favourite but i like all of the songs.

I love all three of those, and I'd add St Dominic's Preview to the list of favorite Van albums. (I love Tupelo Honey as well, but not quite as much as Moondance, because Moondance has Caravan, which is currently my favorite Van song.)

If nothing else, this made me watch the Bill Clinton plays M83 clip for some reason. I think because I saw "M83" and "sax solo"

Walk Away Renee - The Left Banke - YouTube

Every chorus in this song is incredible, but especially the first and last one which feels particularly poignant and heart-swellingly beautiful because of its simplicity and childlike imagery:

Just walk away, Renée
You won't see me follow you back home
The empty sidewalks on my block are not the same
You're not to blame

Speaking of this album, there's a line in Now My Heart Is Full that always gets to me: "Tell all my friends / I don't have too many / just some rain-coated lover's puny brothers." There's something in the delivery that really brings the pathos.

I also like when he then lists all their names and such. I'm tired again, I've tried again.

It would be plural if we're talking about several people's favourite moments, and thus several songs
