Party Like It’s July 20, 1969: The Moon Landing Playlist

As noted this morning, today is the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. It was difficult to choose this morning’s Wake-Up Video, as the moon has provided an inordinate amount of inspiration to musicians in their songs and videos. So to augment this morning’s Smashing Pumpkins clip, here are 10 more videos to play while looking to the stars and tipping your hat to the thrill of exploration and the miracle of science.
