Kate Rusby, British Folk Artist - A Flat Earther?
« on: June 06, 2011, 08:00:18 AM »
I was just listening to Kate Rusby's song 'Moon Shadow'

"Moon shadow,
He's there but barely visible,
Moon shadow,
When I'm scared and fairly miserable,
A watch for me he'll keep,
So I might fall asleep."

Kate Rusby's songs are almost entirely arrangements of traditional tunes.
 This song is clearly an ode to the Moon Shadow, referred to on this forum as the Antimoon, and its (here either personified, or a relic from the traditional song which may have been in Old English, se mōna being masculine)  help to protect the folk from the harmful effects of the moon.
I shall look further into this.

I think Cat Stevens did this first.

Actually Cat Stevens' song Moonshadow (notice the lack of a space) doesn't specifically thank or express gratitude to the entity, but I shall look further into this.

Cat Stevens song moon shadow was about him looking down at his shadow cast from the moon.  Not the shadow of the moon.
