Some of the most memorable songs about the moon from across the musical spectrum.
Songs About or Inspired By The Moon…
Once in a Very Blue Moon - Nanci Griffith
Moonshadow - Cat Stevens
Harvest Moon - Neil Young
Moonlight Mile - Rolling Stones
Help - there was a song in the early nineties the said something like "It's like (putting) (or something like that) on the moon. A female sang it - WHAT was the name of that song?
Essential: "Marquee Moon" by Television--featuring a building-up crescendoing of fantastic and tensely scary guitar interplay between Tom Verlaine and Richard Lloyd ("I remember how the darkness doubled, I recall lightning struck itself/ I was listenin, listenin' to the rain, I was hearin', hearin', something else/ . . . All this time with the Marquee Moon, but just waitin'"
Also: not strictly about the moon, bt Tom Waits has a great line in "Bad Liver and A Broken Heart": "No, the moon ain't romantic, it's intimidating as hell."
(oops, sorry: Marquee Moon previously mentioned by HW Saxton)
hey wait . . . Moonchild was originally recorded by King Crimson . . .
