Bad Moon Rising in the 80s

Dave Mason and The Reels created a beautiful version of John Fogerty’s 1969 song in 1988. Click on the orange and blue image below to see the filmmaker capture the people of 1980s Sydney.


|The Reels, Bad Moon Rising, 1988 |

I see a bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin’.
I see bad times all day.

Don’t go out tonight,
Cause it’s bound to take your life,
There’s a bad moon on the rise.

I hear hurricanes a blowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.

Don’t go out tonight,
Cause it’s bound to take your life,
There’s a bad moon on the rise.

Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we’re in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.

Don’t go out tonight,
Cause it’s bound to take your life,
There’s a bad moon on the rise.
