In case you found yourself too busy re-watching Game of Thrones, know the first solar eclipse in decades happens this Monday. People want to treat it as something like the Super Bowl of astronomy, and the viewing parties being held across the country need to know the best songs to listen to while watching the eclipse. Any good viewing party requires the proper solar eclipse playlist in order to evoke the suitable witchy and apocalyptic vibes that arise when the sun disappears. A bit different from the perfect moon songs, the best songs to play for the eclipse capture the meeting of both the sun and moon along with the supernatural elements such an occasion calls for.
So as you plan your eclipse viewing party, don't forget to put together a playlist for the event. Spoiler alert - looking at a solar eclipse directly damages your eyes, even causing blindness! But if you prepare with solar eclipse glasses and a sick set of tunes, you may watch all the excitement without any risk to your corneas all while Bonnie Tyler wails in the background. Curate your solar eclipse playlists well, because if you don't, people will be talking smack about your playlist for all 40 years it takes to get to the next one
