Song of the Day #1,074: ‘Moonlight in Vermont’ – Frank Sinatra

My family is on vacation for the next two weeks, and I’ve decided to take a vacation from the blog as well. But I’d hate to break my streak of consecutive SOTD posts, so I’ll continue featuring a song each day during our trip, only without commentary (don’t worry, I’ll still post my Ron Sexsmith Weekend as usual… I know you were concerned).

My selections will center around our travel destinations: Vermont and New York City. OK, to be honest, today’s song will be the only one about Vermont — nothing against The Green Mountain State, but it hasn’t been the subject of very many songs. New York, on the other hand…


Pennies in a stream
Falling leaves, a sycamore
Moonlight in Vermont

Icy finger waves
Ski trails on a mountainside
Snowlight in Vermont

Telegraph cables, they sing down the highway
And travel each bend in the road
People who meet in this romantic setting
Are so hypnotized by the lovely…

Evening summer breeze
Warbling of a meadowlark
Moonlight in Vermont

You and I and moonlight in Vermont

    Looks as though Francis Albert provided the commentary for you today.

    Funny to hear his talking voice slip so effortlessly into that gorgeous singing voice.
    I’m not sure if this is a crying song or a tranquilizing song, but it’s a lovely one. Great idea to feature songs that feature places… hey, if you run out of New York material, you can feel free to mine the vacation destinations of your most loyal readers. I’m sure there are scores of songs written about Mobile, Alabama. πŸ˜‰

    Just love Frank’s voice. Enjoy Vermont!

    well, I’m sure your folks are enjoying today’s SOTD almost as much as they are enjoying having you all there visiting. Enjoy your vacation!

    Lovely song to kick of what I’m sure will be a lovely visit. Lots of love to the whole family!! I can’t wait to see you all in October!! πŸ™‚ Safe travels.
