  1. Thought this would have featured on the list somewhere?

    Pink Floyd – Eclipse

    You be careful with those knock-off glasses amylee.

    As I recall there was a lot of media fuss and attention over last total eclipse in the UK too.

      • On our papers here, seems that everyone and his brother is doing playlists for the eclipse, and a lot of them look oddly similar, so i thought i’d try to knock off one of my own that’s a bit different. Floyd is on almost all of them, (the whole album, even), Bonnie Tyler too, which i absolutely loathe, and Soundgarden is on way too many as well. And Carly Simon. Oddly enough, no one seems to have come up with the Stones wanting to see the sun blotted out from the sky. I despair of my country.

  2. I remember standing en masse outside my workplace to experience the last one in the UK (in August 1999). It wasn’t absolutely total here in the north but it still went dark and quiet for a short time. Eerie.

  3. Do you still have nutters like the Westboro lot declaring the end of the world when these things happen, amy? I get the impression that it’s relatively quiet on the religious apocalypse front, whereas in the real world I can hear the sound of hooves approaching……

  4. Good selection, sorry I’m late. Don’t worry about “getting in the way”, the more the merrier!!!
    I remember the last “big” eclipse because I was at summer school at York University. We all went out and stood by the lake, it was quite odd. And the resident poet went missing. (He turned up later rather worse for wear. I blame the aliens).
