Gilbert was lucky enough to get a telescope for Christmas along with some books about space, the planets and the stars.
Last night we finally got it out and had a good look through it – the moon was looking particularly bright and alluring.
So much so that it has inspired a musical musings post today that really is an ode to the stars. Here are my favourite songs about stars, the moon, the galaxy and all that is in it…
Tasmin Archer – Sleeping Satellite
I love the acoustic guitar in this one and Tasmin’s vocals too – this reminds me of high school and early mornings getting up to watch the Top 50 on Rage!
The Church – Under the Milky Way
This is a fantastic live version of their 80s classic – again lots of acoustic guitar and a simple bass line that just sucks you in.
Simply Red – Stars
Yeah, I had a thing for Mick Hucknall in my youth. I could listen to his voice forever… This was the first Simply Red album I ever bought and it was played on high rotation throughout Year 9 and 10 – such a classic album.
Brand New Heavies – You are the Universe
This is quite an amusing video (just ignore the bad dubbing between audio and video) and matches the song’s fun and funky vibe. A perfect way to end our odyssey past the stars.
Linking in with the Sunday Session hosted by Cass Can Sew.
I hope you enjoyed the ride – have a fabulous Sunday!
