    Default Andy Williams and Moon River

    We should all raise our ukuleles and sing "Moon River" or "Born Free" for Andy Williams, R.I.P.

    Adios, Andy.

    Got Moon River in my Daily Uke book, will give that a run-thru tonight.
    That was one of my Mom's favorite movies and favorite songs.

    We had his records in the house and watched his TV shows when I was a kid, he sure could sing.
    I have more ukes than I need, but not as many as I want.

    Watched 'Breakfast at Tiffany's' last week and have been fiddling with 'Moon River' ever since.

    RIP

    RIP Andy Williams, and my condolences to his loved ones and fans. "Moon River" is iconic and represents Henry Mancini/John Mercer at their best, and "Breakfast at Tiffany's" (with all of Mickey Rooney's insuting portrayal of Holly Golightly's building manager edited out) is a favorite movie. Andy Williams was also great about exposing new music (including the Osmond Brothers) on his television show. He will be missed.

    I call it the Happy Heart Song

    Done. It has some fun chord changes.

    RIP Andy
