Acoustic Moon Songs

The Y! Music Playlist Blog

Human beings have looked up to the night sky to ponder the moon since we first stood upright. For thousands of years it was a complete mystery, and even worshiped as a God. Today we know a heck of a lot more about this barren celestial body that orbits our home. And even though we've walked upon it's surface, it still continues to inspire us.

There are literally thousands of songs that have been written about, or inspired by the moon. No one has the time to listen to a comprehensive list of moon songs. So, to help cut the list down, I've filtered it by selecting only quality, acoustic-based tracks. This filtering helps create a consistent experience that lends itself well to the subject matter.

The playlist contains over 2.5 hours of music from many genres, but the acoustic guitars, pianos and strings tie it all together.
