The Most Awesomest Song of the Day: “Moonlight” by Said the Whale!!!

I have a feature to recognize a slice of good music: The Most Awesomest Song of the Day! 

Here’s a link to the complete list:

I want to emphasize mostly, relatively newer music, just like on my weekly “Theme Attic” show, Wednesdays, from 1PM-4PM!

But I can promise this: I will not force my selections. If something doesn’t hit me, I won’t post one.

Everything I do has always been about shining a spotlight on the artist and their music.

Now I will have the potential to shine 365 more spotlights if I want to!


It’s time for another salute to my favorite nighttime celestial orb!

“Moonlight” by Said the Whale from their “Cascadia” album, made a powserful impression on me the first time I heard it!

I was moonstruck! (Hee-hee!)

Weaving an hypnotic keyboard phrase along with multi layered harmonies over a dreamlike background throughout the chorus, I instantly bonded with a beautiful melodic tune!

In particular, the phrase reminds me of a similar one from the dungeon area soundtrack of the first Zelda adventure by Nintendo. It brought back memories of my young son calling it the ooh-de-larry song.

I could listen to “Moonlight” all night long and not lose interest in it!

The Most Awesomest Song of the Day is “Moonlight” by Said the Whale!!!
