This week, I'm revisiting songs that I gave not nearly attention to on the first go around.
I originally posted about this song in 2013, after I heard it in a Food Lion in Delaware. I wrote a really short post about it, with a couple of small details, such as chart position.
What I neglected to address was the subject matter of the song. Overtly, it's about the Apollo missions to the moon - the moon being the titular satellite. And, there are a lot of moonscape references - the eagles fly, the dry seas. However, the song is also a metaphor for anything one might want to shoot for - the stars, a goal, anything.
It is also one of those songs that is a persistent favorite of mine, since its release in 1992.
I wanted to include a live version here - Tasmin Archer is still performing, and of course performs her biggest hit. I did not find a more beautiful version than this one from 1993, with less production and a simple acoustic accompaniment.
