I'm still stuck on the moon. Last week I listed thirteen quotes about the moon. This week I present thirteen songs with moon in the title. This was a surprisingly easy list to compile off the top of my head!

1. Moonlight Sonata (Beethoven)

2. Clair de Lune (Debussy)

3. Blue Moon (Sha-na-na) (lyrics)

4. Allegheny Moon (Patti Page) (lyrics)

5. Moon River (Audrey Hepburn, Breakfast at Tiffany's) (lyrics)

6. Moonlight in Vermont (lyrics)

7. Bad Moon Rising (Creedence Clearwater Revival) (lyrics)

8. Moon Over Miami (Many artists, this version by Connee Boswell)

9. Moon Shadow (Cat Stevens) (lyrics)

10. By the Light of the Silvery Moon (Doris Day) (lyrics)

11. Moon Over Bourbon Street (Sting) (lyrics)

12. Fly Me to the Moon (Frank Sinatra) (lyrics)

13. Moonlight Serenade (Glenn Miller & His Orchestra)

Wow, two votes for Clair de Lune! It's a toss up as to whether I like that or Moonlight Sonata more.

Adelle - Had to include some classic rock in there just for you. ;)

colleen said...

I have more moon poems than poems on any other subject. Need a sidebar category I think.

To the moon, Alice! And I got married on a blue moon and the song was played at the reception.

Heather said...

Alice - Argh! Thank you for letting me know blogger had messed with half my links. I don't know how or why that happened, but all are fixed now!

Thanks everyone! Glad so many like my (short) list of moon songs!

Oh I love all these songs. The "Moon Over Miami" I always knew was by Vaughn Monroe! (A crooner from the 30's).

I'm delighted you fixed the links and have bookmarked this post so I can return when time permits. At the moment I need to get myself showered and dressed for Book Club but I wanted to say thanks for your comment at Sacred Ruminations about my journal pages. Sharing continues to be a challenge for me, but I'm making the effort to feel the fear and do it anyway ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Christina DeLorenzo said...
