Sky Dancing Across the Moon…

Lifesavers Ad from 1954…

Good Morning

In celebration of yesterday’s Super Moon, let us start the morning off with some moon tunes. (Look for a separate Sunday Reads post a little bit later on this morning.)

But first a few links from yesterday’s show:

‘Supermoon’ photos from around the world – The Washington Post

Look! Up in the Sky! It’s Supermoon! – ABC News

Cosmic Log – How big is that supermoon anyway?

BBC News – Bigger and brighter ‘supermoon’ graces the night sky

And now for the music…


So, what sort of Moon Songs can you come up with this morning?

    Great songs, JJ – I always loved Moonlight in Vermont.

  2. Delphyne says:

    And of course, Ella singing How High The Moon – I think I’m showing my age!!

    • Love these Kathy, I am so glad you are posting others. After reading the emotional post from Wonk last night, it was hard to think of any moon songs…Thanks for the links and for this one from Ella.

        When I took Kylie out for her walk, a lot more Moon songs started racing through my mind:

        Moonlight Sonata
        Claire de Lune
        Moon over Miami
        Blue Moon
        Shine on Harvest Moon
        Howlin’ at the Moon (Hank Williams, Sr.)
        Slow Dancing with the Moon (Dolly Parton)
        Moon Mother (Lisa Thiel)

        I’ll probably think of a bunch more during the day!

    And I cannot forget Loreena McKennitt’s Moon Cradle.

    O/T but I remember those Butterscotch Lifesavers very well.

    At one time it was my favorite candy treat and I carried a roll in my purse at all times when in high school.

    Until one nun would conduct “surprise raids” and make us empty our purses every so often, confiscating the candy that we never saw again.

    Took me awhile to “wise up” that she was taking them for her own enjoyment! Never could figure out what she did with the “contraband cigarettes” that fell out of those bags but I have a suspicion they weren’t just fingering the rosaries over there in the convent.

    Haven’t thought of those Butterscotch Lifesavers in years trying to play “hide and seek” with Sister Mary Lidwin. She made a haul in those days.

    • Funny you say that Pat, because I had the same experience with authoritarian figures, only mine was prison guards at Raiford. They took my big bag of Double Bubble when we went into the visitor’s pavilion, and handed me an empty bag when we came out. (I was 7 at the time…as if going to visit my uncle in prison wasn’t enough to shock the hell out of me…)

  5. Sunday Reads are coming up!

    Seattle had clear skies last night — and today! Saw the huge goldeny moon in the evening. The best part was early this morning hearing the birds start singing, looking out the bedroom window, and seeing a huge silvery moon in the southwest, as the sky was lightening to blue. Ah. What a sight.

      Sounds wonderful. I’m going to try for a look at it tonight since we now have clear skies.
