Tonight there's gonna be a Total Lunar Eclipse, a "celestial event" where the moon turns red and all kinds of gullible people start making pronouncements about the supposed relationship between stuff that happens far away in the sky and human events and personalities. In honor of this astronomical rarity (visible in LA, allegedly, from 10:33 p.m. until 2:01 a.m.) here are 5 songs to watch the Total Lunar Eclipse by:

5. David Bowie, Space Oddity

The moon is in space. Eclipses are odd. So is Bowie.

4. Echo and the Bunnymen, The Killing Moon

Eclipses bring the inner Goth out of *everyone*.

3. Klaus Nomi, Total Eclipse

Klaus Nomi rules. That's all. Just listen to him.

2. Bonnie Tyler, Total Eclipse of the Heart

Pure lowbrow poetry, in the best sense. That's why karaoke won't let the flame be extinguished.
