Tonight's full moon is a blue moon. "Wait," you say, "isn't a blue moon the second full moon in a month?" It turns out that notion started by mistake from a magazine article in the 1940s. For long before that a blue moon was and is the third full moon in a season with four full moons. Since this summer has a fourth full moon coming in September, tonight's is a blue moon. Let's mark the occasion with songs mentioning the moon. Leave your suggestions in the comments below and we'll spin a set this morning.
Elvis Presley - "Blue Moon"
Cowboy Junkies - "Blue Moon Revisited (Song for Elvis)"
Joseph Arthur - "Honey and the Moon"
Neil Young - "Harvest Moon"
