    Great sense of sound, and "feel" of vinyl, as well as its scent. And 'blue moon' is part of so many songs. There's a lot of blue moon songs from The Marcels, Elvis Presley, Rod Stewart, Dean Martin, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, and the Supremes, just to mention a few!

    Terrific haiku on so many sensations!

    I enjoyed this one, too, Bob. It reminded me of a jolly old Russian folksong called Broken Record, cleverly sung to include the repetition but without the annoyance of such.
    One I wrote earlier:

    churning . . .
    gently lifting the stylus
    from a cracked 75

    I love this! I remember playing a 45 record of Blue Moon so many times,
    that my mother begged me to stop.
