52 Songs for 52 Weeks: The Whole of the Moon by the Waterboys

Week 5 – The Whole of the Moon by the Waterboys

The Waterboys are a band that creates the big music.  Guitar, keyboards, fiddles, trumpets, – it’s all there.  There is no better song to learn about the Waterboys than this one.  

The Whole of the Moon is a gigantic, Celtic, happy song.  I’m pretty sure we played it at every party I ever went to in the late 1980s.

The torch in your pocket And the wind on your heels You climbed on a ladder And you know how it feels To get too high Too far Too soon You saw the whole of the moon The whole of the moon

The honest energy that Mike Scott brings to these lyrics, make it a must have tune for your collection.  Happy Irish rock recorded in the happy year of 1985.

Just listen – it will cheer you up.

I was dumbfounded by truth, but you cut through lies


– CJ Cheetham
