Description
This is a song I've loved since i don't know when; one of the loveliest and most memorable melodies composed since pop music began and when I saw Sylvia's posting of this a few weeks ago, I just had to DL'd and try it for key. That was after I'd checked to see if there were lyrics to the melody, because to date, I've only ever heard instrumental versions with maybe a chorus doing the ooh's and aah's....... well I added some chorus 'ooooh's' in back of Sylvia's ( Lilmom) fantastic orchestration ( just listen that piano) and sang the lyrics I got off line.... just hope you like it...

Lyrics
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 saying
"Dear one, hold me fast"
And I start in praying
Oh Lord, please let this last

We seemed to float right through the air
Heavenly songs seemed to come from ev'ry where
And now when there's moonglow
Way up in the blue
I always remember that moonglow brought 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 saying
"Dear one, hold me fast"
And I start in praying
Oh Lord, please let this last

We seemed to float right through the air
Heavenly songs seemed to come from ev'ry where
And now when there's moonglow
Way up in the blue
I always remember that moonglow brought me you

Right up your alley
Maurice, this sits so well in your voice and you have the understanding of the style to pull it off with a great deal of panache. Just superb. And the arrangement is quiet and restrained, as it should be. It lets the vocal shine while lending a calm and lovely support. Great collaboration. I'm surprised you've not heard the lyrics before now, but glad you found them. It is certainly a cool song. (You might wish to credit the authors.)

You know
me so well Paul... it is right up my alley. Thank you for the great comment, but also for nudging me into mentioning the writers of the song, which was really a bad oversight on my part. It was written in 1933, three years before I was born, which in my book means it was written before its time by these people music by Will Hudson and Irving Mills with words by Eddie DeLange.
Thank you once more Paul for the comment as well as the reminder, regards M

I Can just picture...
... Sylvia seated at the grand piano while Maurice is draped over the lid, crooning to her. It has that kind of intimate feel. A very nice job on this old classic, Maurice and Sylvia. ;)

Oh dear!
I hope it doesn't reveal too much Ricky ha ha... I know you would like this for the song alone, so I'm more than pleased you think I did it and Sylvia's playing of it, justice. I agree it is one of the best songs and that's probably as I said to Vic above, why I was and am, so comfortable singing along to a great accompaniment. I was never a musician; my playing was always only a means to an end..... so I'm very pleased Sylvia came along, regards M
