Lazy Sunday Music: Supermoon

Posted on: June 23, 2013

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

Great choices, Beata.

here is my Bigger Moon contribution…and it got a Razzie award!

@3 The one and only. Audrey COULD sing. If you doubt me, check out her “How Long Has This Been Goin’ On” from Funny Face. Thanks for posting that often overlooked clip of Audrey at her most real, Beata.

@5 ROFL, Fuzzy. A Razzie award, that’s great.

How about some Ella?

Okay, I’m done.


Here’s an astrological look at today’s “Supermoon” in Capricorn. The effects of it will continue to be felt for the next 2 weeks or so.

Beata@13: Interesting!

@11 Excellent choice, Fredster!

Mary Luke@15: Oh I loves me some Ella! 🙂
