:: MOON RIVER ::
Moon river, wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style someday,
Oh, dream maker, you heartbreaker,
Wherever you're goin',
I'm goin' your way
Two drifters, off to see the world,
There's such a lot of world to see,
We're after the same rainbow's end
Waitin' round the bend
My Huckleberry friend,
Moon river and me.
Hearing something? It's Henry Mancini's Moon River.
Moon River is definitely one of the bestest song ever created. It was first heard at Audrey Hepburn's movie Breakfast at Tiffany's in the 60's. I truly love this poignant song especially in the Sex and the City season 4 ender (the one where Carrie danced with Big the night before Big's departure for San Francisco). Since then I've been hearing it in various films like How To Lose A Guy in 10 Days and even in the funny movie Stuck-up.
Some interesting stuff I got from another site:
After the very first screening of "Breakfast at Tiffanys", the president of Paramount Pictures paced around the room, puffing on a cigar, and said, "Well, I'll tell you one thing, you can get rid of the song." Thankfully, Audrey was there and to her credit, she stood up and said, "Over my dead body."
Henri Mancini's "Moon River" won the Academy Award in 1962 for Best Original Song.
This is a yearly post-birthday tradition. The best of the best birthday messages (with some non-sense replies from me). Sucky and lame but read it anyway. Hit it!
