Post Jimmy Webb's "The Moon's a Harsh Mistress"
Watched a performance on our local pbs station this evening and saw Celtic Woman sing this song. Copyright by Jimmy Webb appears to be in the 70s'. Does anyone know if there is a Heinlein connection other than the title? I haven't looked at the lyrics yet.

Looks like zilch connection in the lyrics. I think Webb might have just liked the phrase.

Heinlein sometimes slightly modified titles of existing, famous works, e.g., "Have Gun, Will Travel" -> "Have Spacesuit, Will Travel" (and only one year later). Is there any evidence that TMIAHM was based on a prior title?

In my alternate world, I think I'd have Grace Slick writing lyrics and her own music for "The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress", and singing a knock-out performance of it with The Great Society at the Fillmore. ... I'd also like a ticket and a time machine, please.

I actually SAW Grace Slick at the Filmore once. She showed up unexpectedly late during a show by a band I cannot remember at all. I remember she was very good but unfortunately that is about all I remember about that concert....

It was a VERY long time ago.
