(CNN) -- The blood moon is a feast for your eyes.

But while you're at it, why not a soundtrack to satisfy your cerebral side?

That's where we come in.

The moon is visible for an hour starting at 6:25 a.m. ET Wednesday.

And here's our playlist, perfectly timed to go the distance

1. 'Moondance' - Van Morrison

How could we not start with this classic?

2. 'Bad Moon Rising' - Credence Clearwater Revival

Bad. Blood. Close enough.

3. 'Moonshadow' - Cat Stevens

With the blood moon eclipse there's plenty of shadow to go around

4. 'Moon River' - Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck

Just about everyone has covered this song, but these two do it so well.

5. ' Fly Me to the Moon' - Frank Sinatra

Ol' Blue Eyes croons this one as only he can.

6. 'Man on the Moon' - REM

Here's a little agit for you never believers.

7. 'Walking on the Moon' - The Police

This is the most arresting song we could find -- The Police, get it?

8. 'The Moon Song' - Karen O & Ezra Koenig

Because we had to have a song from this year.

9. 'Pink Moon' - Nick Drake

Pink. Blood. It's as close as we could get on the color chart.

10. 'It's Only a Paper Moon' - Ella Fitzgerald

The First Lady of Song dishes up this classic - and put things in perspective.

11. 'Bark at the Moon' - Ozzy Osbourne

We'd recommend against it. That's what your dog is for.

12. 'Dancing in the Moonlight' - King Harvest

What would a lunar eclipse be without some hippies?

13. 'Moonlight Serenade' - Glenn Miller

A little big band for the big blood moon

14. 'Moonlight Sonata' - Beethoven

To wrap up an hour of moon songs, we go way, way, way back.
