Fly Me To The Moon

On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 landed on the moon. Shortly thereafter, Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the surface, followed by Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin.
To mark the occasion, I’m playing a medley of songs with “Moon” in the title. Before you ask, yes, I did consider including Dancing In The Moonlight, Mr. Moonlight, Bad Moon Rising, Everyone’s Gone To The Moon and Man On The Moon, but if I had added all those songs, this medley would have lasted longer than the moon mission.

The Moon Medley
Tranquility Base – Frank Sinatra – Capris
Marcels – Van Morrison – Cat Stevens

    Good morning- Ray. Another surprise this morning and a good one. I was concerned when you said what you didn’t include in the medley but my fears we’re unfounded as I began to listen.. The Capris and Marcels were a great way to start and by the time I got to Neil Young and George Harrison you had me. I enjoyed today’s medley. Thank you, Ray.

      ROCK ON, BRO!

    Ray, what a wonderful medley. Course you had me with Frank Sinatra! Who doesn’t love fly me to the Moon? I think the grouping that you used this time was so varied and stuff covered so many different periods. Just loved every second of it. Could you hear me humming along or singing the words that I knew? What a wonderful job you did on this and what a pleasant surprise. Thank you thank you so much!

    What a great surprise-a history lesson & “moon” music. Enjoyed them both. Bet you can’t guess which song was my favorite!

      Thanks, Pat. 🙂
      My first guess would be Frank and after that I’d go with Cat Stevens. 🙂
