Weekend Music Thread – Walking on the Moon

16
32

Today is the 50th anniversary of one of the greatest scientific achievements in the history of human civilization, the landing of Apollo 11 and the first step of a man on the moon.

So this weekend, we put aside the past week’s events that reflected what is worst in us as a people to focus on what is best in us, our ability to come together over an ambitious vision and make huge progress towards a better future.

The theme for this weekend’s music thread is the moon and everything associated with space, the sun, the sky, the stars and planets, living and mechanical things that fly and the mysteries in life that still await us.

Now it’s your turn to launch your favorite songs into musical orbit around The Planet! 5-4-3-2-1…Lift off!

Incredible! To all refugees, this is for you:

I remember the songs you sang to me
When I was a babe in arms
Oh, my stars
Oh my stars, will you
Navigate me home

We are princes and princesses
So our pauper fathers taught us
As they carried us through darkened streets
With eyes sad as soldiers
To where no country and no colours and no borders can hurt us again

I remember the songs you sang to me
When I was a child in arms
Oh my stars
Oh my stars, will you
Guide me to my home

Are they your brothers and sisters?
Or someone’s sons and daughters?
Did they flee the gods of war?
Did they place their faith in water?
So no country and no colours and no borders can hurt them again

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na

And the man in the moon sees the man on the ground collapse
As the man on the scene says to the boy in the jeans
“Keep it real kid, just give us the facts
Keep it real kid, just give us the facts
Keep it real kid… ”

I remember the songs you sang to me
At night when the seas were calm
Oh my stars
Oh my stars, please
Deliver me from harm

And the night skies inverted and reflected in the ocean
And the skies guide us through
Ever deeper darkness
To where no country and no colours and no borders will turn us away

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na

And the man in the moon looks down and he turns his back
As the man in the coat says to the lost on the boat
“Keep it real kid, just give us the facts
Keep it real kid, just give us the facts
Keep it real kid… ”

I remember the songs you sang to me
When the lightning skies were calmed
Oh my stars
Oh my stars, please
Deliver me from harm

Oh my stars
Oh my stars…
Deliver me from harm
