The allure of the moon goes back to the beginning of human history. For thousands of years mankind had no idea what it really was, and some even worshipped it as a god. Only a dozen human beings have set foot on it.
Indeed, the pull of the moon on planet earth is more than gravitational, it has inspired many a songwriter to sing of it's mysteries. In fact, songs about the moon probably go back to the very first humans to ever write songs. Athough we will never hear those early compositions, we have thousands of modern moon songs to choose from.
This playlist includes my personal top 10 picks for the best "moon songs" ever recorded.
