The composer of the song "Have I Told You Lately" is wrongly credited to Van Morrison/ Scotty Wiseman. There are two separate songs. The 1945 country song by Scotty Wiseman was titled, "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You".
Van Morrison's song, "Have I Told You Lately" was composed solely by him and appeared on his 1989 album, Avalon Sunset. This song was covered by Rod Stewart in 1993.

Hi Lynn,
Thank you for the feedback. I have forwarded this to our editors, but my suspicion is that this is another instance of an ongoing issue we're dealing with that's more complex than simply entering the correct composers.

The problem would be mostly that your site is used as a reliable source for music information and yet in this instance and others, I'm sure, your information is wrong and was not researched as it should have been before being included on your site.
