Music and the moon: A playlist for the solar eclipse

Samantha Cristol/File

No one can deny that the solar eclipse will be visually breathtaking. Unfortunately though, the universe does not send out a sick playlist to accompany the natural phenomenon (how selfish of it). So, to make your eclipse experience that much better, we at the Clog have composed a playlist full of songs to complement this rare event. Get ready to jam out and have your jaw drop. Happy solar eclipse!
