The moon will pass over the sun in North America Monday, treating much of the country to a full solar eclipse.
Since I didn't travel to Oregon, I'll witness a partial eclipse from my vantage in Pasadena, Calif. Since I didn't get special eclipse glasses, I won't be able to look at it, but I still feel the need to celebrate this rare celestial event, so how about a nice playlist?
To explain: my idea for this playlist is to go from light to dark, back to light again. I feel especially good about having "Anakins' Theme" in there -- it musically takes us from the light to the dark side of the Force. Then, the music gets a little dramatic and scary as the moon blots out the sun, followed by some mellow and slightly gloomy music when all is dark. And after that, the sun re-emerges, like a lark ascending. Hope you enjoy!
Here's what's on the list:
