Top Ten Songs with the Word "Moon" in the Title

As a night owl, often sleepless, I thought this could be a good idea.
All the words containing "moon" are also welcome.
Hope that all the sound samples will work!

The Top Ten

1 Man On the Moon - R.E.M.

This song is a tribute to comedian and performer Andy Kaufman, and gave its name to MiloŇ° Forman's movie based on Kaufman's life. The movie is irresistible (as the song), starring Jim Carrey as Andy Kaufman. The song "The Great Beyond" was written for the movie's soundtrack. - Lotuscandy

Great song, great movie, great comedian, great band, great soundtrack, great comment... - Billyv

2 Moonlight Sonata - Beethoven

Obviously timeless and beautiful, thank you Metal_Treasure! - Lotuscandy

3 Bad Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater Revival

This song is also known for its misheard lyrics - "There's a bathroom on the right" (actual lyric "There's a bad moon on the rise"). - Metal_Treasure

4 Moonage Daydream - David Bowie
5 Moonlight Drive - The Doors

After writing them in his notebook during a drug-filled summer, Morrison shared these lyrics with UCLA acquaintance Ray Manzarek by writing them in the sand underneath Venice Pier, thus making it the first "official" Doors song.

It's known to be one of the first songs ever written by Jim Morrison and he supposedly wrote it on a rooftop in Venice Beach, Los Angeles, California in 1965.
