Musical flashback: Moonlight Feels Right

The song played every time Mike and I ate at Joe’s Crab Shack. I never heard it anywhere else – ever – until today. 

It reminded Mike of his childhood. He said its one of the few things he associated with “happy memories” of his early life and his parents. He remembered hearing it at his parents’ softball games when he was really young. But he didn’t know the song name or the group that sang the tune. 

For his birthday one year, I researched and found it – “Moonlight Feels Right” by Starbuck. (This was pre-Shazam.) I stealthily put the song on his iPod. SURPRISE! It’s a good memory. 

But it’s an awful song. Ridiculously stereotypical 70s sound. And it was playing on the Sirius 70s On 7 channel when I was on my way to pick up the kids. I hadn’t heard the song in a long time. I smiled at the happy memory, but I couldn’t wait for it to end. 

It’s still an awful song.
