Moon River from Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)

Moon River from Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)

The moon was big and bright on Friday night. This shot was also taken by the Sony Ericsson Cyber-shot camera phone, in Twilight Landscape mode.

The Friday night moon reminded me of the song ‘Moon River,’ which I can sing along with anytime. Wouldn’t it be nice to talk a stroll in a moonlit night like this?

Moon River

Moon River, wider than a mile,
I’m crossing you in style some day.
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,
wherever you’re going I’m going your way.
Two drifters off to see the world.
There’s such a lot of world to see.
We’re after the same rainbow’s end–
waiting ’round the bend,
my huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me.

Moon River” is a song composed by Johnny Mercer (lyrics) and Henry Mancini (music) in 1961, for whom it won that year’s Academy Award for Best Original Song. It was originally sung in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Audrey Hepburn, although it has been covered by many other artists. The song also won the 1962 Grammy Award for Record of the Year.

Let us take a walk down the memory lane this weekend. Do you remember where were you and what you were doing when you first heard this song?

Stalk me
Share the joy

    @ Mckhoii, thank you. Pardon me I do not exchange link at this blog for the moment. Will update you in future if I start a blogroll.

    @ Silver, it is quite a common phone and pretty good one for taking photo. Nevertheless, a phone is still a phone and it has its limitations in photo-taking. 🙂

    I’m a huge fan of Audrey Hepburn. I loved this movie and this song. So melancholic. Thanks for sharing. Thank you also for your kind birthday wishes to my hubby. We had a nice time 🙂

    I love that movie. My sisters and I used to watch it all the time, when I was little, every time it came on tv. A few yrs ago, I bought it on video. The song is romantic, but I always thought a little sad too.

      @ Sue, I agree that the song sounds a bit romantic and it has a little sadness in it. It seemed to be a song of looking back at a particular fond memory.
