Song of the day: The Waterboys- The Whole Of The Moon


An eighties classic by the Waterboys today! It was not an instant success, but as time goes by, it became the best known song for the band. The song also was a source for a lot of speculation, which all started when the girlfriend of Mike Scott (the founder of the band) asked if it was difficult to write lyrics for a song. He wrote some things on the back of an envelope, which was the basis for the song. It’s a tribute to several people, like C.S. Lewis. However, it was definitely not about Prince, as many people seem to believe. Enjoy
