I visited my friend, Palmer Kane Allen, on his channel the other day (I love Palmer's voice and as I also loved his version of Moon River, I asked him if he would allow me to put my vocals next to his. Palmer was very kind and accepted and so here is the result of this collaboration. I hope you will enjoy this cover. Moon River was written by Johnny Mercer and composed by Henry Mancini ; it was originally sung by Audrey Hepburn in the film by Blake Edwards, Breakfast at Tiffany's which was released in 1961. It was performed by Andy Williams at the 1962 Oscar Awards and was awarded the Oscar for Best Original Song. NO COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT INTENDED. FAIR USE ONLY. Je suis passée voir mon ami Palmer Kane Allen sur sa chaîne l'autre jour (J'aime beaucoup la voix de Palmer et comme j'ai aussi beaucoup aimé sa version de Moon River, je lui ai demandé s'il accepterait que je pose ma voix à côté de la sienne.

With the passing of Andy Williams, I keep imagining his golden tenor singing Henry Mancini's "Moon River." The song talks about crossing life in style. "Breakfast at Tiffany's" is all about fashionable cafe society and love; in an adult fairy tale, you can have both even if you are two drifters.

One of the most, if not the most beautiful songs written during the past century was "Moon River" by Johnny Mercer (lyricist) and Henry Mancini ,composer The song was written for the movie, "Breakfast at Tiffanies" from a Short Story by Truman Capote. Audrey Hepburn played the lead and sang the song. The song became famous when it was sung by Andy Williams. This became his theme song when he performed at Branson, MO in his own theater. The song will live forever in people's hearts, those that love music, that is. We still have Andy's recordings.

More tributes to Andy Williams...of course we are all familiar with "Moon River"...but on that album, he recorded the Academy Award winning "Never on Sunday" which I think is the best in class. Check it out.Greek and all !
I realize Andy Williams was 84, but I can still hear him singing "Moon River " as if it were yesterday. A handsome face, and a voice like butter. It really saddens me that those days are long past. But then, I never imagined a time in which musical genius Brian Wilson would be fired from the Beach Boys, by the least talented member of the group. I guess I'm not all that surprised about Erin Moran's situation, but she WAS supposed to live happily ever after with Chachi. All in all, a tough day for my 50's--60's state of mind.

I used to think I would never recover from the times my mom and dad would hear Moon River, embrace and start dancing - in the kitchen making dinner, or god forbid out in public. Now those moments make me smile. RIP Andy Williams and thanks for all the memories and akward glimpses of my parents love life.

Miah and Titan the singing Chinese Cresteds were in today. They were singing away when Logan the poodle and his owner come in. Logan will be joining in his owner says. Does he know the words to "Moon River" I ask. Laughing she asks why. Well that is the song of the day because they are honoring Andy Williams who just passed away don't tell me you can't pick up the melody I say. You are so nuts she says. Nuts maybe but at least me and the dogs have a fun day at work.
Talking to a friend yesterday who remarked that 'Moon River' was theme music to his childhood. For me it was about the Andy Williams Show, a family event in my house. What a graceful man.

Okay, former PHS Marching Band members... refresh my memory... Andy Williams' passing had me recalling that we played "Moon River" during our field show in 1978. I also seem to recall learning one show for fall and another show for Washington DC in the spring - the one for DC opened with "California Dreamin'". Where did "Moon River" fall into these shows? Was it the fall show? I remember that one opened with "Nothing like Music", but the rest of the songs are kind of blending in together... let better memories prevail Mike Weiner, Richard Rodgers, Bryant Duffy, Holly Rosskopf Ruddins, Peters Suh, and all the rest of you! :)
Great article decoding the song "Moon River" by Andy Williams. also has great cover by Beck & Clapton
Andy Williams set "Moon River" record long before Neil Armstrong's first walk on the moon. Two legends all took place during the 60's.
'Moon River' crooner Andy Williams dies at age 84 The Associated Press Published September 26, 2012 BRANSON, Mo. — For the older — OK, squarer — side of the generation gap, Andy Williams was part of the soundtrack of the 1960s and '70s, with easy-listening hits like "Moon River," the "Love Story" theme and "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" from his beloved Christmas TV specials. The singer known for his wholesome, middle-America appeal was the antithesis of the counterculture. "The old cliche says that if you can remember the 1960s, you weren't there," Williams once recalled. "Well, I was there all right, but my memory of them is blurred — not by any drugs I took but by the relentless pace of the schedule I set myself." The 84-year-old entertainer, who died Tuesday night at his Branson home following a yearlong battle with Bladder Cancer, outlasted many of the decade's rock stars and fellow crooners such as Frank Sinatra and Perry Como. He remained on the charts into the 1970s and continued to ...
Stupid CBS Gayle King comment of the day regarding the death of Andy Williams regarding Moon River: "Now it takes on a new meaning knowing that he's no longer with us."
like anyone under 40 knows who he is but Andy Williams died yesterday. he was a mid to late 60's crooner... every year a Christmas special and in the late 60's to be hip Andy would wear a turtle neck sweater ... Moon River was his signature song and must say my childhood memories is all that crap he represents. a kind of blind innocence as a american culture began a fissure (Viet Nam and counter culture started to mock the innocent American). most of my performance and visual art came out of this disconnect of desire for sentimentality and softness with the spectre of some moral sickness in this ignorant denial of cultural reality. my performance character Stu Mulligan would sing Andy Williams type songs and stylings then end by vomitting a Jack in the Box milkshake on the stage later becoming mayonnaise... I delved into being a cultural anachronism behind the times ( wearing only polyester in the late 80's and early 90's- one of the most difficult 5 year performances considering the Houston humidity) My ...
Andy Williams,84,loses cancer battle.How many of you remember his songs, "Moon River","Born Free","Love Story" His voice is "a national treasure" I especially like his song "Born Free", which coincided with the theme or slogan of Norwegian Cruise Line --"FreeStyle" Cruising!! How many of you watched that old movie "Born Free" filmed in Africa? Just returned from a safari trip to South Africa and Victoria Falls in Zambia. Life is too short! Treasure your days to come with "Wine and Roses" with your loved ones!!
Andy Williams===(any relation to Jenna?)---One of the last great crooners of the time. - Alfalfa, (may be th best)-- miss Mr. Nat (lazy Hazy Day of Summer ) Cole, the Perry the Barber Como, Frankie the Man Sinatra, now it is by to Mr. Moon River Andy Williams. Sang in the 60"s amidst the rock movement and yet was "Born Free"-Yet I wonder how many of us secretly would have a peace flag and then was closet Moon River melancholy listeners of that song. Then remember "Breakfast at Tiffany's"---He was so smooth that he could touch sandpaper and turn it to ice.---Where is Lou Rawls now? another?
Andy Williams...So glad we got to see his Christmas show in Branson (not very far from us) several years ago. Anyone remember his Christmas specials with Claudine Longet and the children? Then of course there was "Moon River" from "Breakfast at Tiffany's" that made him a house-hold name. Left the Bright Lights of New York and Hollywood in, I think it was 1992, and moved to Branson. He liked to tell how RFK asked him to be a delegate to the Democrat Convention in ? only to discover that Andy was a Republican. He died yesterday...a class act...
When I hear Moon River by Andy Williams, I am reminded of many happy and special times spent at Montgomery's beautiful Riverfront Park. It puts on its best show at night, especially when the moon is full. Thank you Mr. Williams for such a lovely song. I tip my hat to crooners everywhere, those who have passed on and the ones who are to come. I hope it is a style of singing that never goes, well, out of style.
So Joe says to me, "You know Andy Williams died." I said, "Yeah, I know. So sad. He sang "Moon River you know." Upon which Joe replied, "I liked him singing "White Christmas." Only my Joe would get Andy Williams and Bing Crosby mixed up.

Moon River,heard it all my life growing up , one of those we'll never forget . Rest In Peace Andy Williams!
Thanks to Andy Williams (rest his soul) making Moon River world-famous, we get to hear PJ Harvey perform the classic
Moon River was a classic and so was Andy Williams. A generous contributor to Obama and Clinton. Good man. Love the Christmas music too :)
Call me old fashion but I will always love "Moon River." R.I.P. Andy Williams
Andy Williams passed away. Love love love to play his songs at the restaurant. Who doesn't love "Danny Boy" and "Moon River?" Great loss for the music world.
From The Osmonds and Sammy Davis Jr. to Bing Crosby and even Simon & Garfunkel, the number of artists who performed with the legendary Andy Williams through the years is truly astounding. Tonight the Moon River runs with the tears from all of us who remember a lifetime of entertaining the world. Andy's memory lives on in his music, and the joy it has brought and will continue to bring to so many. We'll miss you Andy, but we'll never forget you.
Original chart peak, & or not being released as a single (back when that meant something) isn't everything. Andy Williams had 27 Billboard top 40 hits, 53 chart singles.and his two best known songs, "Moon River" & "It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year!", aren't among them.
Do you not find it ironic that the first man on the moon Neil Armstrong, the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, and the singer of "Moon River", Andy Williams have all died. Ironic? I think it's pure lunacy.
Andy Williams passed last night. This evening Mark Levin, SiriusXM talk show host, constitutional lawyer and conservative, played Andy Williams "It's the most wonderful time of the year" in honor of Williams. Did I mention that Levin is Jewish? RIP Andy Williams, we will continue to hear your recordings but miss your smile. Moon River
Another of our favorite singers gone.Andy Williams died yesterday.remember Moon River,Dear heart etc.Most of our generation favorites have gone on...Vic Damone,Perry Como,Al Martino Dean Martin Frank Sinatra Bing Crosby etc.Who will replace them? Lil Wayne?Jay Zee?Lady Gaga? Madonna? Thankfully we still have the cd s of the old favorites .
In 1965-1966, Bill Horn was the Drum Major of the Jefferson Davis Senior High School Marching Band (Houston, Texas). I was the Assistant Drum Major and got to carry the stick and wear the big fuzzy hat on the football field once during my term of office. Halfway through the band's routine, we stopped to play "Moon River." It was my pleasure to conduct the band as they played. It was a magnificent performance! The song was popularized by none other than that 1960's lounge Singer Andy Williams. Andy died today. I'll always be grateful to him for providing me with my one and only opportunity to conduct a band. R.I.P. Andy Williams.
It's really a sad day to hear that we've lost another American Legend, Mr. Andy Williams...No matter what generation your from, the " COOL " 1950's, with long sideburns and cruisin hot rods, or the " TURBULENT " 1960's, with J.F.K. routing the Soviets in '62, or landing on the moon in '69, we had the best in music during those years listening to " Moon River " to " The Impossible Dream ".among other musical talents who benefited from Andy's musical style. His belief in the gospel and good clean living made all of us be proud to be Americans. There will never be another singer that will touch the hearts of the people like Andy did in 1968, when he sang for Senator Robert F. Kennedy at the Ambassador Hotel the new " KENNEDY FOR PRESIDENT " theme song, " The Impossible Dream " to only hear gunshots minutes later, killing " THE DREAM ".Rest In Peace, ANDY.
Just heard that Andy Williams died last night. My parents loved him! I just got done listening to Clay Aiken sing Moon River and it is really a beautiful song! I had many groups to teach today! I counted both my Title groups and my TAG groups and came up with 55 students!! Whoa. And I love them all! I went from teaching the preschoolers some songs to doing decimals with sixth graders. I have devised a new system of organizing their papers and projects. Pizza Hut sold me 55 medium pizza boxes and they work great to store things. And they stack so well too. The only thing is that whenever I look at them, I get hungry for pizza. LOL Oh well.

Awww R.I.P. Andy Williams...Moon River is, and always will be one of my favorite songs EVER! Such a beautiful voice!
Even in Ireland the death of Andy Williams is being broadcast on the BBC. A True American icon. The Andy Williams Show and Moon River. There will never be another like him.
Andy Williams, the man who introduced the Osmonds to America and started a wave of family acts ( The Jacksons, Cowsills, Partridges and the DiFranco Family) is now crooning by the Moon River in the sky. RIP Andy. I hope A&E or Hallmark or one of those channels runs a Andy Williams Christmas Special marathon. That was Good Stuff.
R.I.P.Andy Williams. Ironically, his most famous recording- 1961's "Moon River" was never a chart single hit for him (two versions, by both Henry Mancini and Jerry Butler both peaked at Andy's biggest hit was his 1957 version of "Butterfly", which competed with a version by the Philly singer Charlie Gracie. Both versions went to "Can't Get Used To Losing You" was his second biggest hit, a big record in 1963. We've lost another Big Gun in show business...Christmases will not be the same.

Moon River one of my favorites, my dad and I used to sing this song together when we were driving from Long Beach back to Camp Pendleton late on Sunday nights when he was preaching at New Life Community Church on Sunday evenings. We would put in an 8 track of the Best of Andy Williams and sing along. I remember watching the lights of Oceanside get closer as we drove and did our sing along. Then when we were done with Andy we put in the Best of John Denver both 8 track tapes we did this to stay awake too. Ahhh the memories.

Andy Williams has passed. So sad. It seems we are losing so many who are or have been cultural icons lately. Many years ago ( in my twenties) I brought the lovely young lady who was to become my wife to the banks of the Wabash River in Marion In, for a picnic on an early fall evening. I brought along a tape ( yes a tape, I'm really old) of " Moon River". It was a wonderful evening and I am still transported to those days when I hear the song. Farewell Mr. Williams, you will be missed.

Mom has settled into Franciscan Villa to finish her skilled nursing. We are thankful she is there...just something very peaceful about that place & a lot of TLC by the staff there. When I went by this morning, someone was playing the piano and singing "Moon River." Didn't sound like Andy Williams, but it was very sweet. Next song, "Let me call you sweetheart." Okay...I get it. They are doing oldies. Next song I noticed was "Downtown." Remember Petula Clark from the seventies? Come on! That's my decade. No better songs than from the late sixties thru the seventies. Music can take you to places you forgot existed...good times!

Blue Moon Of Kentucky (Bill Monroe).
thought this would be an appropriate song to post this evening. I had posted Andy Williams version before, so I opted for this instrumental classic. Why does it remind me of a scene from "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest"?! Gentlemen, it's medication time!
