Moonglow

Lyrics ,Music:Eddie De Lange ,Will Hudson ,Irving Mills

The song was publishe 1934.

Writer George T. Simon, while working on a compilation of music for
The Big Band Songbook, contacted composer Will Hudson regarding “Moonglow,” and Hudson explained how the tune came about.
“It happened very simply. Back in the early ‘30s,
I had a band at the Graystone Ballroom in Detroit,
and I needed a theme song.
So I wrote ‘Moonglow.’”
Hudson’s band flopped, so he traveled to New York
and was hired by promoter/publisher Irving Mills
as an arranger and composer.

The Casa Loma Orchestra version from July, 1934,
was the first to feature Eddie DeLange’s lyric
sung by reed player Kenny Sergeant.
The next month popular African-American vocalist Ethel Waters
waxed a vocal with the Dorsey Brothers’ Orchestra.

Benny Goodman’s Quartet recording from August, 1936,
introduced vibraphonist Lionel Hampton as a member of
Goodman’s ensemble, and the tune hit the charts
for three weeks that year.

The song’s appeal never really dwindled.
With a clever counter-melody composed by George Dunning
and new words by Steve Allen, the tune was an integral
part of the 1955 motion picture Picnic.
Allen’s association with the tune continued the following
year when he appeared in the starring role
in The Benny Goodman Story which included “Moonglow”
on the soundtrack.


Picnic


It must have been moonglow, way up in the blue
It must have been moonglow that led me straight to you
I still hear you sayin', "Dear one, hold me fast"
And I keep on prayin', "Oh Lord, please let this last"

We seemed to float right through the air
Heavenly songs seemed to come from everywhere

And now when there's moonglow, way up in the blue
I'll always remember, that moonglow gave me you

It must have been moonglow, way up in the blue
It must have been moonglow that led me straight to you
I still hear you sayin', "Sweet child, hold me fast"
And I keep on prayin', "Oh Lord, please let this last"

We seemed to float right through the air
Heavenly songs seemed to come from everywhere

And now when there's moonglow, way up in the blue
I'll always remember, that moonglow gave me you
