On the 50th anniversary of the first men on the moon: Songs about the moon

It's July 20, 1969. The time is 9:56 central. Neil Armstrong is taking the first steps on the moon that any human has taken. With the entire world watching, he says these magical words:

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

At the time this is being published, it will be exactly fifty years since Armstrong took those first steps. The celebration of this anniversary has been ongoing for a few weeks. There have been numerous television shows broadcast and articles written about it. I don't have anything new or profound to add, but I can give you some entertainment.

There have been hundreds of moon songs written and recorded. Here are ten to commemorate this event:

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
