Moon Tune

We sat outside last Friday night.  Even though our carport and lanai face directly east, we had a pleasant sunset experience.

There was plenty of lightning in those clouds as well.

Before too long it was dark and the moon was rising, occasionally peeking through the clouds.  Not yet a full moon, but I can hardly notice the difference.

There is something about the moon that just goes with music:  Blue Moon, Fly Me to the Moon, Moon River, and Moonlight in Vermont.


Can you name the artists for these?
  • Moon Dance
  • Moon Shadow
  • Bad Moon Rising
  • Dancing on the Moon
  • Walking on the Moon
  • Waltzing in the Moonlight

  1. Oh, those clouds - and the moon! I've been noticing it lighting the night here in the mountains, too.

  2. Moon Dance ~ Van Morrison
    Moon Shadow ~ Cat Stevens
    Bad Moon Rising ~ CCR [Creedence Clearwater Revival]
    Dancing on the Moon ~ IHNI [I have no idea!]
    Walking on the Moon ~ The Police
    Waltzing in the Moonlight ~ Country Joe and Fish

    You picked some great songs! Of course, with Andy Williams passing away last week, I’m really leaning toward Moon River.
    At my mother’s home, they played Harvest Moon, It’s Only a Paper Moon, Moonlight Bay, By the Light of the Silvery Moon…
    What about Everyone’s Gone to the Moon ~ Chad and Jeremy?

  3. I knew the artists for the first two songs, and I knew the rest of the songs but HNI about who did them!

    Clouds like that are the reason that I love Maxfield Parrish's art!

  4. Did you take that first photo? It doesn't look real, more like a painting. All the pictures were gorgeous.

  5. Beautiful photos, Olga! Love 'em. Also love the song choices. Van Morrison is one of my all-time fave artists.

  8. I know Moon Dance is Van Morrison because that is one of my all time favorite songs. What pretty pictures! The moon has been so enormous and big over here too. Just lovely.

  9. Wow, those photos are really beautiful. I have also been thinking of Moon River a lot since Andy Williams just passed away. I really don't know those other songs except for Moon Dance.

  10. The sun goes down over trees at our house, so we never get anything like what's in your photos. Beautiful!

  11. Wonderful sky drama! Wonderful moon songs too. I love Moon Shadow. I like to sing it on the beach in moonlight.

  12. I went for the camera saying, "those clouds don't look real, more like a painting."
    Muffie wins the prize (not that there is one). Squirrel Nut Zippers did Dancing on the Moon. perhaps i know that only because I worked with teens before I retired.

  13. LOvely. Here in Cape Town we have six months of the year of clear, blue skies. Just great to see clouds as beautiful as these.
