La luna del raccolto.

(Please scroll down for a pleasant English version)

Il grande Neil Young ha reso omaggio alla luna piena con un brano meraviglioso,  rilassante e musicalmente leggerissimo:  “Harvest Moon”,  che vi propongo oggi.

La denominazione Harvest Moon,  cioe’ La luna del raccolto si riferisce al fatto che in questo plenilunio le messi sono giunte a maturazione.  La Harvest Moon e’ precisamente la luna piena piu’ prossima all’equinozio d’autunno,  ma io vi propongo questo brano adesso,  a fine agosto,  perche’ adesso si miete qui in Finlandia.

Buona domenica e buon ascolto!   www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2MtEsrcTTs 



Harvest Moon.

Great songwriter Neil Young paid homage to the full moon with a wonderful,  relaxing and musically very light song:  “Harvest Moon”,  which I propose to you today.

The name Harvest Moon,  refers to the fact that on this full moon the crops have reached maturity.  The Harvest Moon is precisely the full moon closest to the autumn equinox,  but I propose this passage now,  at the end of August,  because now it is harvest time here in Finland.

Have a happy Sunday and enjoy the song!   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2MtEsrcTTs

Harvest Moon

Come a little bit closer
Hear what I have to say
Just like children sleepin’
We could dream this night away
But there’s a full moon risin’
Let’s go dancin’ in the light
We know where the music’s playin’
Let’s go out and feel the night
Because I’m still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I’m still in love with you
On this harvest moon
When we were strangers
I watched you from afar
When we were lovers
I loved you with all my heart
But now it’s gettin’ late
And the moon is climbin’ high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin’ in your eye…
.

  1. non conoscevo questa curiosa denominazione dell’ultima luna d’estate 👍 qua ieri sera si vedeva un bellissimo ultimo quarto, c’era una mezza luna fantastica che si specchiava sul mare…
