Today is National Moon Day.

Forty-seven years ago, two the first Earthlings landed on their moon.

We Earthlings have always been fascinated by our moon.

Shakespeare wrote “Rise up, beautiful sun, and kill the envious moon. The moon is already sick and pale with grief because you, Juliet, her maid, are more beautiful than she.”

Buddha said: “Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth.”

And there’s always this from George Carlin: “There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls.”

And I love songs about the moon.

Here are my top five moon-related songs:

5) Harvest Moon (Neil Young)

4) Dancing In the Moonlight (King Harvest)

3) Moonshadow (Cat Stevens)

2) Bad Moon Rising (Creedence Clearwater Revival)

1) Moondance (Van Morrison)

Do you have a favorite song about the moon?

    I’m a Cancer, a moon child, so the moon figures strongly in my psyche. I will add to your list: Dancin’ in the Moonlight, Moonlight Drive, and Fly Me to the Moon. We are in Cancer now, which means the moon is dominating universal energy.

    Thanks for stopping by. I’m a Pisces myself, so I’m in tune with Cancers and Scorps. 🙂 I do have Dancing in the Moonlight listed. . . and you have great taste in music!
