Wish I could have played this song rather than reading the book a thousand times to my kids. Oh wait a sec, all those readings were awesome.

Love this song. I do think it's got its own native charms, but it helps too to have a narrative association.

Years ago, my daughter had a paper round, delivering the big Sunday papers in our Scottish town. Early Sunday mornings I would take her up to the shop where she picked up her papers for that morning's deliveries — 05:00 a.m., or so.

One winter morning (Scotland — dark!) we were sitting in the car waiting for the shop to prepare the order. On to our local radio came Shivaree "Goodnight Moon", under a moonlit sky. We loved it — still do!

 
Your little narration immersed me in this specific early morning ,on a winter sunday in Scotland, for a moment erasing the walls of a finishing summer in Beijing. I saw your two shadows in the car, the slight condensation on the windows, the clear echoes of an empty street, and this song, this shared moment. Beautiful suspended moment. Thank you

Just unmuted and thought for a second this was Dolly Parton.

It's actually like Marcella Detroit singing Leonard Cohen's The Future...

No, it's a different riff, but it's a little, 8-note "turn-around" in a minor key, and there are only seven notes in a scale, which may explain the similarity.

Great week for moonlight.  Cool, silvery, bright... Air is warm and perfect for dancing, walking on beach, prowling the woods..

Very basic human animal moon... Cold and wet arrives tomorrow... Seasons are ok in moderation. Some places have too much of each flavor

Life is great on the North Florida beaches... 

RP choices this morning fit my weather and enhance the mood... Why do I buy CDs, vinyl, and singles-?  Maybe I should surrender to the inevitable and stream RP throughout the house all the time... Just "ride the music" and let it flow... Thanks, never had that thought with Pandora, spotify, or any over the air-via-internet and competing streams... Yep, I'm a fan and like the sensibility shown.

She does somewhat, but I don't know if I'd say "exactly".  E.G. Daily is an odd person to bring up; it's not as if she's sold a whole lot of records - isn't she primarily a voice actor?  I remember her from a PBS TV program called "The Righteous Apples" in the early 1980s.
Anyhow, good tune.

Sure. It's good the influences are transparent. Paying your respects to someone who led the way in the genre is fine by me.
