No Moon At AllWords & Music by Redd Evans & David Mann
Recorded by Julie London, 1956
Am Am+7 E7 Fdim E7 No moon at all, what a night -- A7 Fdim A7 Fdim D9 Dm Even lightnin' bugs have dimmed their lights; Bm7-5 E7 Bm7-5 Am Stars have disappeared from sight, Fdim F7 E7 Am Bm7-5 E7 And there's no moon at all. Am Am+7 E7 Fdim E7 Don't make a sound, it's so dark A7 Fdim A7 Fdim D9 Dm Even Fido is afraid to bark; Bm7-5 E7 Bm7-5 Am What a perfect chance to park, Fdim F7 E7 Am And there's no moon at all. Bridge: A7 D7 If you need atmosphere for inspiration, Dear, G7 One kiss will make it clear C E7 That tonight is right and bright moonlight might interfere. Am Am+7 E7 Fdim E7 No moon at all way up a - bove; A7 Fdim A7 D9 Dm This is noth - in' like they told us of. Bm7-5 E7 Bm7-5 Am Just to think we fell in love... Fdim F7 E7 Am And there's no moon at all.
I've long been a fan of Julie London, even though I've heard the complaint that her appeal as a recording artist was based more on the photos on her album covers than on her clear, but admittedly somewhat uninspired, vocals. As a fan of "put the emphasis on the song, rather than the voice," I tend to appreciate that "lack of inspiration." And while this song may not have been a giant in popularity, but I have learned to appreciate it anyway. I hope you do, too.
