Eclipse Songs – Your Eclipse Party Soundtrack

Full disclaimer: this post has nothing to do with sailing. But there’s a historic solar eclipse happening in the U.S. – and we had such a good time putting together our Ultimate Sailor’s Playlist, we couldn’t resist the urge to make a soundtrack of eclipse songs. So without further ado, here’s our list of suggested music for viewing the solar eclipse. It’s an eclectic mix, ranging from Beethoven to the Beatles to Billie Holiday to Bruce Springsteen. And of course, no playlist of eclipse songs would be complete without Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’.

Whatever your plans for viewing this historic event, we hope these eclipse songs make for good company in your celebration. You can subscribe to the playlist on Spotify here: Eclipse Party Soundtrack. And for you music nerds out there, here’s the full list of eclipse songs in alphabetical order.
