Mike’s Favorite Original Songs of the Decade: #35 – “The Moon Song,” from Her
35. “The Moon Song,” from Her
How beautiful is this song? It’s so great that you almost forget that it’s a song performed by a man and his operating system girlfriend. The simplicity of it is what’s so great. It sounds like something you’d just pull together while sitting in bed with your significant other, just messing around. Plus that siren at the beginning makes it seem like it was actually composed while sitting in an apartment at night while life goes on outside. It’s perfect for the song, which is meant to be a sort of bubble that the blissfully happy couple exist in.
