And a big, beautiful harvest moon is rising in the sky…

  1. Certain songs always prompt me to proclaim, “They don’t write lyrics like that anymore.” I’m thinking of songs like “Disco Lady” (“Shake it up shake it down; move it in move it round”). “Dancing in the Moonlight” is one of those songs: “Everybody here is out of sight. They don’t bark and they don’t bite.”
