It’s probably not a surprise that I’m relieved that California’s Prop 8 was ruled unconstitutional. What might surprise you is how I get from that to Jonathan Coulton’s song about Pluto and Charon after it was decided Pluto isn’t a planet anymore. The song is from Charon’s point of view, telling Pluto
They invented a reason
That’s why it stings
They don’t think you matter
Because you don’t have pretty rings
I keep telling you I don’t care
— I’m Your Moon lyric page
After Prop 8 passed, filker Angelica of Ash Productions started dedicating I’m Your Moon to those couples whose marriages were prevented by it. Vixy & Tony picked it up.
This performance features Vixy & Tony, joined by Betsy Tinney on cello, recorded at a house concert.
Updating to add: more humor, less sweet: Tom Smith singing Two Guys Kissin’ Ruined My Life.
