While unpacking some stored boxes, I happily discovered the Doris Day compilation cd On Moonlight Bay with Paul Weston and his orchestra, The Norman Luboff Choir and Jack Smith. By The Light of The Silvery Moon again with Paul Weston Orchestra and the Norman Luboff Choir is included. The cd still had it's cellophane wrapper on.
On Moonlight Bay songs include:
Till We Meet Again
I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles
Cuddle Up A Little Closer
Every Little Moment (Has A Meaning All Its Own)
By The Light of The Silvery Moon Songs include:
By The Light of The Silv'ry Moon
Your Eyes Have Told Me So
Just One Girl
Ain't We Got Fun?
If You Were The Only Girl
Be My Little Baby Bumble Bee
I'll Forget You
Listening to this cd so filled with charm, sweetness and a depth of feeling is such a uplifting feeling. It is a different and more focused experience than listening to the songs while watching the films. It prompted thoughts about music that was important to people one hundred years ago in the 1917 period. What will people have to say a hundred years from now about our music today? Will there be musicals to capture the current era? I hope so.
Doris was perfectly cast in these sentimental and heartfelt musicals that capture a sense of innocence, optimism, humour and romanticism.
