25 Great Songs About the Moon on the Anniversary of the Lunar Landing

Today marks the 49th anniversary of the Neil Armstrong’s famous moonwalk. On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 touched down on the surface of the moon, inspiring a generation of rocket scientists, astronauts and those of us with wild imaginations. But even before that “giant leap for mankind,” our species has been fascinated by our closest celestial neighbor. We’ve compiled some of our favorite songs about the moon. All 25 of these were either recorded by the Paste Studio staff or come from our vault of historic live performances. From classics like “Fly Me to the Moon” and “Bad Moon Rising” to newer tracks from artists like Dawes and Fionn Regan, here are 25 great songs about the moon to celebrate one of humanity’s most ambitious achievements.
