Lazy Sunday Music: Supermoon
Posted June 23, 2013on:
Good Sunday, Widdershins!
If you are up sipping coffee at the tome this post is published, you need to get to a window within the next thirty minutes in order to get the best possible view of the supermoon, aka the perigee moon.
The supermoons occur when the moon is full at the point of the lunar perigee, making them roughly 10% larger and 30% brighter than the average full moon. They don;t come along very often, and this particular little beauty is said to be the best that we have seen in some time, as well as the best that we will likely see for the next few decade
In honor of this phenomenon, I thought that we might spend today reminiscing about songs dedicated to moons They’ve been around for years in almost every genre, so this should be an easy one. Here’s my list, in no particular order, in this otherwise open thread:
(1) Bad Moon Rising: Creedence Clearwater Revival, 1969
(2) Moondance: Van Morrison, 1977
(3) Moon Shadow: Cat Stevens 1971
(4) Blue Moon: The Marcels, 1961
(5) Rising if the Moon: Irish Trad., sung by the Wolfe Tones
