    There are no songs about the moon really. As a matter of fact they're all about the moon.

    I once made out with a random hottie at a Bunnymen show while that song was playing. The memory is still fresh. I hate to sound trite and sentimental, but it was kinda magical.

    The Moonbeam Song.
    Only Harry Nilsson could sing the words "with bits of crap around its' bottom" and make it sound beautiful and tasteful.

    Well, if the linked list figured Iron Maiden's "Moonchild" qualified Rory Gallagher's song of the same name should too - though it too is not directly about the Moon. Besides, your ears will love you forever for listening to it:



    And though it's only a paper Moon...:



    The Orb's "Supernova At The End of The Universe gets honorary mention in my opinion because I don't know another song where you can hear the phrase "Trans-Lunar injection burn":

    Given the subject, that is a fairly impressive list. Here are two of my favorite moon-tracks/compositions.





    And here's my least favorite moon-song, which happens to be from one of my favorite ^ writers. Moon. Soon. Spoon. June. Silvery. Moon. Egads.
