“If you want to write a song about the moon
You want to write a spiritual tune.”
— “Song About the Moon” by Paul Simon
You may associate singing under the light of the moon with creatures such as wolves, night birds, and frogs, but we humans are just as moved to music as any other animal when the moon hangs high in the sky. With its ever-changing face, pale light, and history of attachment to some of the romantic moments in history, who wouldn’t be moved to song?
To help get you in the mood to celebrate the moon alongside us this month, we present to you an August playlist of moon-themed tunes. Did we leave out any of your favorites?
