Favorite "Moon" Songs #10 - "Sail to the Moon"

And here we go again. Having just finished a countdown of songs with "Sun" in the title, it's time to give the Moon it's due. #10 kicks off my Favorite "Moon" Songs series with "Sail to the Moon" by Radiohead. Since I recently used Radiohead in a music countdown, I won't bore you with the same facts, but @FourWalls did point out an interesting factoid that I hadn't considered. Radiohead formed in 1985, which means they've been together for 32 years (it sure doesn't seem like it.) After 32 years, they still have the original lineup, which is quite amazing if you think about it. Not only have there been no personnel changes, but they have remained relevant and are still making great music. "Sail to the Moon" is from the band's 2003 album Hail to the Thief. Originally titled "Brush the Cobwebs out of the Sky" (prior to it's release, the band leaked the album with different song titles,) "Sail to the Moon" was not released as a single. In fact, it's not single material. At all. It is, however, an enjoyable, mellow little tune (provided, of course, that you like Thom Yorke's vocals. If you don't, this one isn't going to change your mind.) A simple, laid back, great Radiohead tune. (Info verified by Wikipedia)

It is shocking when you add up how long these bands have been together. 32 years for Radiohead? I am ready for the rocking chair.

I saw the Hail to the Thief tour. Doesn't seem like it was 14 years ago.

I'm inspired by your moon song titles. Was going to make a list for sun songs, only logical, but I see you have it covered. I'll take a look and see what you came up with Scott. Lots of fun to do and very creative on your part. Very cool

Heck, do your sun songs list. We borrow each other's ideas all the time. The more the merrier!

Even though this is an entirely different song - for some reason I was reminded of the old tune "Fly Me to the Moon" Frank Sinatra

great starter for the countdown - songs I can think of might include Ozzy Osbourne - Bark At The Moon, Police - Walking On The Moon, Sinatra - Fly Me To The Moon, Waterboys - Whole Of The Moon, and Audrey Hepburn's Moon River

That is amazing they have been together so long with no line up changes. This song is mellow to the max for me right now.

I'm glad you liked it. I know a few people that don't like them.

That's quite a good song. And you know I'm pulling for Francis Albert to make an appearance in this countdown.
