The Birthday Playlist: #5 Blue Moon
This song is dedicated to Jeff
"Blue Moon" is performed by the group Dark Star and was written by Alex Chilton of Dark Star. I first heard this song on a bassoon mix tape --- and the bassoon is absolutely gorgeous in this. Moody.
Here is a bit of the lyrics:
"Morning comes and sleeping's done/ Birds sing outside/ If demons come while you're under/ I'll be a blue moon in the sky".
(When I was a kid I used to have the recurring nightmare of snakes under and around the bed.)
