Before couple of months I decided to prepare a gift selecting several songs about the Moon, moonlight or anything else related to the Moon. The rule was simple:

The title of the song should contain the word Moon in any language, alone or in any combination, as noun, adjective or verb – it doesn’t matter… (e.g. moonlight, luna, lunar, selene, moons, etc. are all acceptable). Of course the text of the song (if any) should also talk about it.

After digging my mind about half an hour I found more than 40 songs. Well I prepared the gift but this idea becomes a funny everyday exercise and the list is growing and growing…

  1. I know you meant just titles, but one name pops in my mind each time I think of „moon“ :)) Keith Moon, the drummer of „The Who“ :) He had a band, released jist one a;bum in 1975 and the album was called… well… „Two Sides of the Moon“.
    So we have an artist, a band and an album. :)
    But unfortunately for the game none of the titles from „Two Sides of the Moon“ contains the word „moon“, their lyrics are far from being… „lunar“ :)

    N.B.: I haven’t heard that album, just happen to know about it. Never seen it in stores also :( But someday I hope I’ll hear it – I think it must be worth hearing… that’s Keith Moon :)

    Pink Floyd – “The Dark Side of the Moon”! I just can’t believe you’ve missed that! :P

  2. Turin, „The Dark Side…“ is also an album (not a song). This is the problem. Well, I can count Eclipse (the draft title of the album) as hack, just to fit the rules ;-)

  3. Ето нещо за албума Tres Lunas на Mike Oldfield:

    Released in 2002 after a series of high-toned concept recordings, Tres Lunas is a bit of a return to straight-up, new age mood music for Mike Oldfield. The musician/composer once again spins carefully layered guitar and keyboard performances into a seemingly endless stream of space-age lullabies supported by the faintest of beats – most of which rarely exceed the intensity of a weak pulse. „No Man’s Land“ and „Turtle Island“ have the most character in this set, but a record like this should be taken in as a whole. A nifty „Music VR“ video game is included that allows fans to explore 3D landscapes on their computer while listening to the disc. Of course, to „unlock“ the software, users have to pay a little extra cash. The music of Tres Lunas is the soundtrack for the game, which is the actual focus of this project. This premise doesn’t set-up well for standard tension-and-release song elements; however, Oldfield fans shouldn’t expect traditional compositions from the man anyway. Since most of the conceptual tinkering that went into Tres Lunas was focused on the computer game, not the music, Oldfield doesn’t overwork his arrangements, which leaves them fresh and leaner than many of his late-’90s offerings.

  4. Оня ден отново ги слушах, огромните Клас и тяхната „Улица Луна“…, та се сетих, че тук може да я няма все още. А тя е прекрасна, може би най-прекрасната им. И най-тъжната…
