Stars Fell On Alabama
Billie Holiday Lyrics


Moonlight and magnolia, starlight in your hair
All the world a dream come true
Did it really happen, was I really there, was I really there with you?

We lived our little drama, we kissed in a field of white
And stars fell on Alabama last night
I can't forget the glamor, your eyes held a tender light
And stars fell on Alabama last night
I never planned in my imagination a situation so heavenly
A fairy land where no one else could enter
And in the center just you and me, dear
My heart beat like a hammer, my arms wound around you tight
And stars fell on Alabama last night

We lived our little drama, we kissed in a field of white
And stars fell on Alabama last night
I can't forget the glamor, your eyes held a tender light
And stars fell on Alabama last night
I never planned in my imagination a situation so heavenly
A fairy land where no one else could enter
And in the center just you and me, dear
My heart beat like a hammer, my arms wound around you tight

We lived our little drama
We kissed in a field of white
And stars fell on Alabama last night

I can't forget the glamour
Your eyes held a tender light
And stars fell on Alabama last night

I never planned in my imagination
A situation so heavenly
A fairy land where no one else could enter
And in the center just you and me
My heart beat like a hammer
My arms wound around you tight
And stars fell on Alabama last night

Alabama should be proud of this.

happy birthday Billy Holiday, You should be proud that a fourth generation is still listening to your jazz.

Billie was one of a kind. Her voice carried all her love, pain, suffering, heartache and tenderness when ever she sang. Thank God for recordings of her golden voice. She touched us all that have a soul. Enjoy!

Like if John Green's book Paper Towns sent you here. :)

I read "Paper Towns" and picture myself dancing with this guy whose relation with me started with this book, to this song, in Sea World, after closing time.

A must read. I also loved "The Fault in Our Stars" and "Looking for Alaska". They are all fantastic and I would suggest them to anyone who appreciates extraordinary books.

Just came from listening to an hour of Sarah Vaughan's music, but OMG, Billie Holiday's versions just hit you in the gut when she sings.  Sarah Vaughan's voice is a thing of wonder, but her versions just don't hit you in the gut like they do when you listen to Billie Holiday.  Even here in 1957, when critics b*tched about how deteriorated Billie Holiday sounds, she is simply remarkable.  I dk about other versions of "Stars in Alabama", but her version here is FANTASTIC!!  At the end of its nearly 5-minute run, Billie Holiday leaves you breathless!  That's what Billie Holiday can do to you.  She takes you on an emotional journey that most singers simply cannot.

shihlin1 If you haven’t you have to check out Rita Payes’ version when she was 14 years old That was 2014. She blows beautiful trombone, so gifted.
Hold on guys, I’m not comparing anybody to anybody. She has obviously listened to a lot of Billie holiday, but at 14 through 17 or 18 she’s entitled to sound like anybody she wants to.
