"Be strong and courageous.Do not be afraid;do not be discouraged,God is with you."Blessings/prayers

Thank you, MikeIII, for this all-time favorite!

"Moonglow and Theme from Picnic" is a 1956-released medley of both "Moonglow" (1933) and "Theme from Picnic" (1955), by Morris Stoloff. It is from the film Picnic, starring William Holden and Kim Novak.

The 1933 piece, "Moonglow", was written by Will Hudson, Irving Mills and Eddie DeLange. The 1955 piece, "Theme from Picnic", was written by George Duning. (Steve Allen set lyrics to the tune, and is credited on vocal versions of the song as a co-author, but not on the hit instrumental versions by Stoloff and others.)

The Stoloff version spent three weeks at number-one on the Billboard Most Played by Jockeys music chart in the spring of 1956. The B-side to the Stoloff version is "Theme from Picnic" by George Duning.

The medley was also covered by George Cates in 1956, charting at number 4 on the charts.

Blessings!

At times, I fit into lyrics more then I fit into life!

I back track to double check because I felt like I have not heard you enough, and I don’t even know how I miss my favorite sweetness right here. Hello Joyce!! I’m sorry I missed this, no excuses, somehow I overlooked this entry!
It was so good to hear you tho. Made my night. Hugzzzzzzz

Please forgive me if I bumble a bit. I'm trying to make some sense of this 2.0 version of singsnap.

Excellent song choice! This suits you well. I haven't heard it in quite a while either... Too cool, Joyce. I loved my listen.
