How High the Moon
Les Paul & Mary Ford Lyrics


Somewhere there's music
How faint the tune
Somewhere there's heaven
How high the moon
There is no moon above
When love is far away too
Till it comes true
That you love me as I love you
Somewhere there's music
How near, how far
Somewhere there's heaven
It's where you are
The darkest night would shine
If you would come to me soon
Until you will, how still my heart
How high the moon

Somewhere there's music
How faint the tune
Somewhere there's heaven
How high the moon
The darkest night would shine
If you would come to me soon
Until you will, how still my heart
How high the moon

Somewhere there's music
How faint the tune
Somewhere there's heaven
How high the moon
There is no moon above
Love is far away too
'Til it comes true
That you love me as I love you

Somewhere there's music
How near, how far
Somewhere there's heaven
It's where you are
The darkest night would shine
If you would come to me soon
Until you will, how still my heart
How high the moon

Aah-aah-aah-aah-aah-aah-aah-aah-aah

Somewhere there's music
How faint the tune
Somewhere there's heaven
How high the moon
The darkest night would shine
If you would come to me soon
Until you will, how still my heart
How high the moon

1951. Mary would often record her vocals in the kitchen while Les worked the guitar and tape machines in the garage. Music far ahead of its time, and always give Mary Ford the respect she deserves.

Lionheart Roar

The birth of electric rock and roll

Jody Wilke

A lovely song--and amazingly talented people. RIP, Les and Mary.😔⛪

this isn't rock and roll or rockabilly at all, but it fits in perfectly in that time era and I love it a lot. look at a video how he did record this song, it is amazing how he did that, and the voice of Mary tops it all, they don't make music like this today.

Robert Berryman — Thanks! I remember LoYC vaguely. I was 13 in '93... I must definitely watch it. Thanks.
 
Things start to come to my mind... This was shown here on TV back in the day and it was re-run too. I remember that my mother watched it. I've definitely seen some of it too, but it's been a long, long time.

burteriksson when you mentioned the UK, it immediately reminded me of the British TV movie-musical that made Ewan McGregor a star: ‘Lipstick On Your Collar’. Assuming you have not seen it, LOYC was an unusual musical in that it did not include any original music. Instead, it featured a lot of early rock hits lip-synced by the characters. The premise is that McGregor’s character often gets bored at work and daydreams these performances involving himself and co-workers. I’ll link you to my favorite from the movie, Mickey & Sylvia’s ‘Love Is Strange’, and if you like it I would encourage you to search “LOYC” and find some of the other songs...

Robert Berryman — Haha! Yes, you definitely need to turn up the volume to enjoy music to its full extent. You don't hear it the same way on lower volume. No, you don't feel it the same way.
 
"Rock around the Clock" was a theme song for a TV show here some thirty years ago. That's when I heard it. Then there was a group of thee DJs and producers from the UK called Jive Bunny and the Mastermixers who made a megamix out of old rock & swing records and it became a huge global success. I still like to listen to it. Those three guys went on to become very successful and well-known DJs.
 
I'm mostly into electronic music – techno, house, trance and such – but I've always appreciated good rock 'n' roll as well. That's the music I heard in our home as a little kid: Elvis, Hugo Montenegro/Ennio Morricone, Simon & Garfunkel... At very young age I became interesed in synthesizer music: Jean-Michel Jarre, italo-disco and that kind of stuff. The music on the computer games (Commodore 64) also influenced me greatly. The soundtrack of a game was always a big part of the experience for me.
 
I din't see "American Graffiti" until just rather recently. It was a nice movie, indeed. I'm really into these teen movies from the 80s, so AG hit pretty close to that. It's really strange I hadn't seen it before.

Robert Berryman

burteriksson I had an aunt, now deceased, who took me and her son to the cinema back about 1972 to see ‘American Graffiti’. That was the first time I heard ‘Rock Around The Clock’. I was so taken with it and some of the other songs that I began saving my money and soon bought the soundtrack album. Some time later, that same aunt told me that she and a lot of other kids loved the song so much that when ‘Blackboard Jungle’ was in cinemas, they’d pay to go see it and leave right after the opening credits. She said the cinema manager threw a fit about it a few times but there was not much he could do to stop them. She said there was really no other way to hear the song cranked up loud, and sounding much better than AM radio or the common record players of the day.

burteriksson

Robert Berryman — Fats Domino is a name I recognize. And Bill Haley is another one. "Rock around the Clock" must be a song that everyone born in the 80s knows. But younger kids... I don't know about them. I'm not sure they even know who Elvis is!
