Morrison also spoke about his relationship with the movies over the years and some of the great and not-so-great uses of his music -- Julia Roberts trying on silly hats to the strains of Brown-Eyed Girl comes immediately to mind. Morrison is pretty protective of his music and still likes to watch a clip of the film that wants to use one of his songs; saying, "when top directors ask to use one of your songs. If Neil Jordan wants to use a song, you can be pretty sure he's going to use it appropriately and he's going to be sensitive to the material." The interview comes on the heels of the release of Morrison's soundtrack compilation Van Morrison at the Movies: The Soundtrack Hits. So until Van Morrison finds a collaborator for his own biopic, we'll have to settle for hearing his music in other films.
