Thread Name: Man in the Moon - old song?
Subject: RE: Man in the Moon - old song?
What a rich seam I've hit on! I'm particularly intrigued by the thought that there is a song to go with TMITM - it's one of my favourite waltzes, and pairing it with a song would be ideal. Don't suppose you could dig that tape out, Vic...?
I confess, I didn't really think the waltz tune and the smutty song were the same tune; I thought they might have had a vague family resemblance, but it was late and I was tired. My main reason for posting was just to give Joe (and anyone else) something to look at apart from the endless "top 5"s. I never imagined the responses would be as interesting and informative as this. Goes to show - on Mudcat you can ask a silly question and get a sensible answer.
