Music for the Eclipse

A dramatic event like the 2017 solar eclipse needs a soundtrack. We've curated 52 songs about the sun, the moon, eclipses and darkness into a YouTube playlist of music videos and lyrics, starting with the most obvious titles -- "Eclipse" by Pink Floyd and "Total Eclipse of the Heart" by Bonnie Tyler -- then chronologically to convey the moon's passage in front of our favorite star and the wait for the sun to come out again.
