In honor of the recent “blue moon,” Jay plays four songs about the moon—two classical, two popular. He also has some Quincy Jones, some Cannibal Corpse (yup), some Villa-Lobos, and some Bruckner. Complain if you will, but not about a lack of variety.

Rodgers & Hart, “Blue Moon
Bellini, “Vaga luna, che inargenti
Dvořák, “Song to the Moon,” from “Rusalka”
Howard, “Fly Me to the Moon
