What’s Your Favorite Harvest Moon Song?
Have you seen the Harvest Moon? Did it inspire a song to begin playing in your head? ‘Shine on, shine on harvest moon…’
Throughout the history of music, our lunar neighbor has inspired countless songwriters to try to capture the beauty and meaning of this celestial relationship and put it down in words. Who do you think has created the best moon song?My vote would go to Van Morrison’s ‘Moondance.’ He creates such a mood with it’s upbeat tempo and always makes me think of fall, ‘Well it’s a marvelous night for a moondance, the stars up above in your eyes, It’s a fantabulous night to make romance, ‘neath the cover of October skies.’
The Harvest Moon rose Wednesday and Thursday of this week, it’s always the full moon closest to the Autumnal Equinox which falls on Sunday, September 22.
Let us know your favorite moon songs and maybe we’ll play them this weekend on ‘Your Sunday Brunch.’
