»Full Moon« by The Black Ghosts

There are quite a few full moon songs, with Frank Sinatra’s »full moon and empty arms« leading the way, from 1945, which was inspired by Rachmaninoff’s piano concert No. 2 (you can hear this in the comparison). A newer example would be the »full moon song« by Peter Bradley Adams from 2011, or the song »full moon« by the British music duo The Black Ghosts (Theo Keating and Simon William Lord) from 2006, which achieved a high level of publicity in 2008 as the soundtrack of the movie »Twilight«. The song may have probably not been that successful, if the music supervisor Alexandra Patsavas hadn’t chosen it for the soundtrack.

The style of music is hard to categorize – some say it is underground-electro, others call it indie rock (derives from independent). The song has certainly been inspired by the guitar-oriented music of the 60’s and 70’s. The text contains the full moon in the last verse (from 02:45 min.):

In the full moon light I listen to the stream
And in between the silence hear you calling me
But I don’t know where I am
and I don’t trust who I’ve been
And if I come home how will I ever leave

It is a song with a special atmosphere and this is what we people are searching for in the full moon light …
