Songs About The Moon #MewsicMonday

Happy Mewsic Monday!

Today, 20th July is National Moon Day - in honour of the day when man first walked on the moon in 1969. 

And guess what,  it's also the theme for this week's Mewsic Moves Me!


So, let's kick-start the day with this energetic number!

NIGHTWISH - Moondance 




The above is a very early Nightwish song but the following track, Shoemaker, is from their latest album Human Nature. It's about Eugene Shoemaker, an American geologist and one of the founders of the field of planetary science. After his death, some of his ashes were carried to the moon with the Lunar Prospector mission.

NIGHTWISH - Shoemaker





And now to this 80s classic by Duran Duran - and tonight it is actually a New Moon!


DURAN DURAN - New Moon On Monday





And now for this catchy one to sing and dance to. Mum used to love singing along when she was younger!

BELINDA CARLISLE - La Luna



A great performance next by Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac!

FLEETWOOD MAC - Sisters Of The Moon




And now let's wind down with a Moonlight Drive 

THE DOORS - Moonlight Drive
