Moonlight Feels Right is the definitive AM radio driving song of the 70s. Written by multi-talented vocalist / keyboardist / producer Bruce Blackman, Moonlight Feels Right represents 70s synth-pop at its finest. Impeccably crafted, winningly melodic and uniquely constructed (how many hits have ever featured a marimba solo?), it was a perfect springtime single. The lyrics were expressively vivid, and the lead vocals from Blackman were comfortable and friendly.
Currently featured in the movie Stuck On You, Moonlight Feels Right was the first single from the Atlanta group Starbuck with Bruce Blackman on vocals and keyboards and Bo Wagner on marimba. The song reached #3 in Billboard, #2 in Cashbox and #1 in Record World in 1976.
A true classic, Moonlight Feels Right has been recorded by dozens of artists and included on over 100 CD compilations. There's no question that it will be remembered fondly, recorded frequently and played on oldies radio for decades to come.
