Have I Told You Lately


I would have to say I like Van Morrison's version better,however Rod Stewart does a great job doing his version too.

Definitely done better by van. Don't know about him being a christian tho. I knew he did some spiritual songs but songs like gloria and brown eyed girl suggest otherwise. I sure hope he is tho

The song was written by Scotty Wiseman, published in 1945 and became a country hit. It was covered by at least 25 major recording artists over the years, including Van Morrison and Rod Stewart.

I am a HUGE Rod Stewart fan but have to say Van's version ruled in this 'battle'. By quite some margin. Simply awesome.

Strange, Van Morrison wrote it ? This song was already recorded in the '50 by Ricky Nelson, Eddie Cochran and many others. Still think the Rod Stewart version is the BEST !

Van Morrison wrote it and it is a spiritual song (about Christ), not the saccharine slush the cover turned it into. I am not a religious guy, but at least the original was sincere

I think Hank Williams St. sung it best. Next best was Sissy Spacek, in "Coal Miner's Daughter."
