There have been thousands of songs recorded about the moon. So many in fact, that you could easily put together a series of moon-centric compilations, and all of them could be jam-packed with timeless tracks. Here at the Y! Radish we have previously published a playlist of Moon Songs
and a playlist of Acoustic Moon Songs
. But for this playlist of moon songs I've limited the selections to only include those tracks that have the name of a color in the song title. The moon can take on different meanings based on its hue and this playlist includes 15 different songs that describe the moon as seen in 15 different colors. I've chosen to use any particular color only one time, so many worthy songs had to be left off the final list. But what would you include that I have not?
