August 2 2015 Playlist

Friday last, July 31, was a full moon. Not just a full moon, but the second full moon for the month, which makes it a blue moon. Consequently, the first song was exactly that: The Marcels, Blue Moon

August 2 was also the birthday of Garth Hudson from The Band, and during the week a story emerged about issues affecting Android phones and tablets, due to the a vulnerability in the Stagefright library used in the Android media player. Putting 1 and 1 together, we always seem to come up with three, and so we were able to play The Band doing Stage Fright as our second musical piece.

The rest of the evening’s playlist was also moon related in some way.

Joey DeFrancesco, Fly Me To The Moon

Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bad Moon Rising

Dave Brubeck Octet, How High The Moon
