"By using the word 'harbor,' the listener gets the vision of a waterscape," frontman Jeremy Bolm tells Rolling Stone. "I like this because the song is about change, like how a change in tide can mean everything for the land surrounding. But on the other hand, the word 'harbor' is being used grammatically as a verb. For example, 'to harbor the love that I have to give,' I am keeping love sheltered and protected from the way I once was."

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
