How many people today know who Hoagy Carmichael was? And yet whenever I come across a scene like this I am immediately reminded of his songs. Though he did not write the lyrics, those were by Stuart Gorrell, Georgia on My Mind, and that line….moonlight through the pines, it’s his melody that echoes in my head.
If you have seen, and can remember the movie, To Have, and Have Not, the movie where Humphrey Bogart meets Lauren Bacal, you might also remember Hoagy as the cigarette smoking piano player. Maybe, too, you will remember that Hoagy composed one of the most recorded songs of the 20th century. According to Wikipedia Stardust has been recorded more than 1,500 times.
Odd how a stroll in the moonlight can have that effect on me.
