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.

I was hoping we could see it, but it is to far north west of us.

I'm sorry.

It was really interesting here, even though we weren't in the path of the full show. At the height of the eclipse here, the light outside was visibly reduced and the sky was a shade of blue I've never seen it before. It was very strange being outside in that atmosphere. I've see eclipses before, but never one quite like this.
