[niche interest thread] Best SPOKEN WORD performance in a song EVER

Coney Island - Van Morrison from Avalon Sunset album. He actually talks the lyrics all way through but the words/Irish place names he uses allied to his Irish accent (OK, with a hint of a pseudo yanky twang!) is just magical. It will not be most on here's cup of tea, accepted, but a most unusual song, and brilliantly pulled off (ooerr). Very soothing. There's approx 30 secs of it as a sampler here:

Closing.....


Edit: Just managed to get a 30 secs sampler of My Sister, sounds interesting, may have to investigate further.
