Glenn Miller & Company

I've ALWAYS been a jazz gal at heart (born and raised), and while Glenn Miller has indeed been played in my house, he was sort of shoved to the side for my dad's love of Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, and Herbie Hancock.

But right now I'm listening to "Moonlight Serenade". This song is so pretty, I want to dance to it at my wedding. It's one of those songs that is so perfect, I wish it was longer...for me, it's in the same group as:

+ "Apple Tree" - Peter & the Wolf
+ "The Wind" - Cat Stevens
+ "As Time Goes By" - Dooley Wilson
+ "Hey Sandy" - Polaris [also known as the theme song to The Adventures of Pete & Pete]

Oh, Glenn Miller...how wonderful your music is, and how sad your story was.
