I concede that 1969 now qualifies as 'ancient times,' being 50 years in the rearview mirror and all, but even back then we were easily able to distinguish between the two.

I guess NRBQ's "RC Cola and a Moonpie" doesn't count.

I was gonna go with King Crimson's Moonchild and then noticed that Iron Maiden, Rory Gallagher, and Keith Jarrett play completely different songs with the same title.

I regret to inform I was unable to locate any songs about hanging a moon.

Boom FM had a program where they mixed Apollo 11 radio chatter withsongs from the 70s/80s. Eg.

"This is the last sleep period for the astronauts"= "Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)"
"Eagle is in orbit" = "Fly Like An Eagle"
"Reducing pressure in the airlock" = "Under Pressure"
"Ready to open airlock" = "I'm Coming Out"

Culminating with "Dark Side Of The Moon"
