30 Greatest "Moon" Songs in Popular Music History!

Musicians from every genre have long been obsessed with the moon, and they've captured its beauty and power in many a song over the years. And no matter what walk of life we music lovers hail from, I think it's safe to say that we've all had a chance to appreciate the moon in all its celestial glory, as well as some of the music that pays tribute to it.

So I figured our recent fascination with the November 2016 "supermoon" and its grandiosity would be a great occasion to celebrate the many moons that have graced radio stations and our personal playlists over time with a special countdown of the 30 Greatest Moon Songs, including classics by Pink Floyd, CCR, the Police, Duran Duran, the Marcels, Joplin, Bowie, Ozzy, Sinatra and many others.

Whether they're walking on the moon or dancing in the moonlight - or simply barking at it - there've been many moons in popular music lore. We've had full moons, half moons and even a new moon on Monday. There've been desert moons, harvest moons and bad moons rising.

Even the moon's "dark side" has been explored, although that was in the form of an album title and a song called "Brain Damage," and you were probably not in your normal frame of mind if you were enjoying that one when it was out. (It's included here, though.)

That said, if "Moonlight Feels Right" to you, put away those telescopes and enjoy this most celestial countdown of super moons, courtesy of djrobblog:

This fourth single from the Anglo-American band's 'Tusk' album came courtesy of the "Welch Witch" herself, Stevie Nicks, who wrote this song.

    Hi, I'm DJ Rob, owner and author of the music blogsite I live in Chicago, IL and have been doing the blogsite since January 2015. It features articles about music news, history and trivia - both old and new. The features I enjoy doing the most are my djroblists. I've done dozens of lists ranking everything from blue-eyed soul singers to Prince's greatest songs. I only recently started converting them to listly to increase interaction with my readers. Take some time to enjoy them and let me know what you think! And check out when you can!
