Music Sunday - Eclipse Edition
Happy Music Sunday!
Because there is an eclipse of the sun today, I thought I'd just leave you some sunshiny music, so I can go outside and monitor the eclipse when it starts here, at about 2:30 p.m. local time. We won't get the full effect; this part of California is a bit outside the path for that. But, we should get a pretty cool view, anyway.
Here's George Harrison and a few friends, with Here Comes The Sun. An obvious choice.
And John Denver, all by himself, singing Sunshine On My Shoulders.
And then there's Cream's Sunshine Of Your Love
In case you're wondering what all the hoopla about the eclipse is about, here is a little primer from NASA.
And, finally, because this is an annular eclipse, known as a "ring of fire" eclipse, I'll leave this last song for today with you.
That was Johnny Cash, singing "Ring of Fire" on the Grand Ole Opry in 1968.
