Moon Tune Abandoned

In my head, I had the Count Basie Orchestra.  After seventy-two hours of this song obsessing me, waking up in the night with the sound of what I hear in my head, fifteen hours of slaving over red-hot guitars, keyboards, recording machines, drum machines, I have accepted that I just can't do it.  My performance skills and my technology aren't up to it.  I could put out a partially completed job, but I wouldn't be proud of it.  So, sorry, this one ain't gonna happen.  Yet.

Just to tantalise you, here are the lyrics:

Here we are, the stars are bright
Soon be time to say goodnight, but
Just a minute, look up there -
Something's in the air ...

Stars are out, the moon is rising
They'll be singing to us soon
There's some love on the horizon -
Could this be it?

Serenading you by moonlight
To a sentimental tune
Are we ready for a goodnight kiss?
Not yet -
We still have things to do with the moon

  1. Waaaa....let it rest. It will go click. Is this an old song or new?

  2. Based on an oldish idea, but largely rewritten in recent days, so new I guess.
