The Moon Medley

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.

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. 🙂

    I will neve forget that day!! I think we all were turning blue!! Then along comes Mr. Blue Eyes himself sayin’ in other words I love you!! So in other words I’ll be true! Ray the moon is out tonight and I’ve got Nancy at my side and I still get that funny feeling!! Darn I love this song so well sung!! Then dang the Blue Moon got in my way but when she said dip a dip dang a dang the moon went to gold!! We still make romance Ray!! The leaves falling makes me mad I didn’t move here to rake leaves! Wow what a great piece of piano then the sax and the base in the background!! Ding a ding!! No more leaves falling but the nights magic is great! Have you ever been followed by a moon shadow!! This song has some deep meaning!! I hope the faithful light will find me!! Watching the moon moving with the tracks of a ring!! I still dream when I look at the moon!! You can always tell when Neil Young is going to sing!! And I still like dancin’ in the Moonlight!! And there is nothing nicer than a Harvest Moon!! It doesn’t matter how high it goes I can still see the light in her eyes!! Nothing like a little George in this medly! And you know Ray the Moon does look like a little brother to the sun!! One small step for man Ray!! I wish we could slow down just a bit and cherish some of the great things in this world!! Great day Ray!!
    love ya!! And what a giant leap it was!!

      Fred, your commentary was (get ready) over the moon! Fabulous job of connecting the songs together.
      I remember that day so vividly. It didn’t feel real. To look up at the moon and realize there were two humans standing on it was mind blowing … just like your commentaries!
      Love Ya!

    Fly me to the moon, as only Frank Sinatra can sing it! I love all the Moon songs, and I listened to this twice. It is starting to become a trend with me, not sure why. I loved all the songs that you chose I think they were all perfect representatives of that big huge solar planet that we see every night in the sky. There has certainly been a number of songs written about the moon. Thank you for putting this together for us this was a nice change and I like the way you’re mixing things up lately this is great! We are a diverse bunch and we have equally as diverse listening interests. Thank you Ray! You’re the best! 🥰

      Thank you, Sandy 🥰
      I often worry that mixing things up will bother people so I appreciate knowing you’re okay with it! I am so happy we’re almost always on the same page. I love you to the moon and back!

    As an astrological cancer, everything moon related really charges me.
    Two of my all time faves Moon dance and Harvest Moon
    What a time it was!
    Love the film A Walk on the Moon that celebrates this event and vacation life in the Catskills then
    This one really struck a chord
