Music to Eclipse By

posted by Dan Michaels -

While the weather here in the Chippewa Valley looks like it might obscure the eclipse a bit, it's still gonna happen.  And while we weren't going to be able to directly witness the full effect, we can still celebrate. 

Now, for a rocker, probably one of the coolest ways to experience it would be to celebrate at the festival held to celebrate the event, featuring the one and only Ozzy Ozbourne as the ONLY act performing today, playing 'Bark at the Moon' DURING the eclipse.  Find out more at www.moonstock2017.com.

Here's a few songs that might add to the fun.  Some actually reference the eclipse and some are just about darkness and related themes.

In this one, Harrison warns against being blindsided by illusion. "Beware of greedy leaders, they'll take you where you should not go."  Hmmm... Seems like it might be applicable on a larger scale, eh?

It was often said that this was just an exercise in word-play from Chris Cornell.

Unless you'd rather hear Robert Plant's take on the song.

Well, she includes the lyric "Then you flew your Lear jet up to Nova Scotia to see the total eclipse of the sun."
