Musical Mondays – Shivaree

I had another artist scheduled for today, however, since it is Halloween, the American band Shivaree seemed a better choice.

Ambrosia Parsley sings a haunting rendition of the classic children’s book Goodnight MoonThe story is about a child saying goodnight to everything around: “Goodnight room. Goodnight cow jumping over the moon. Goodnight light and the red balloon…”  

Shivaree’s lyrics are just a little bit different. 😉

* * * *

“There’s a blade by the bed
And a phone in my hand
A dog on the floor
And some cash on the nightstand
When I’m all alone the dreaming stops
And I just can’t stand …

Well goodnight moon
I want the sun
If it’s not here soon
I might be done
No it won’t be too soon ’til I say
Goodnight moon …”

Enjoy and Happy Halloween,

    Great song,
    I’ve had it on my MP3 player for the past couple of years. Don’t know how I got it and didn’t know the artist until I saw the video here. Was a little disappointed as the artists very sexy voice and rendition of the song don’t match her mainstream model look. I guess I was expecting a PJ Harvey or someone else with an off beat sort of beauty and look. Love the song though. thanks.


Come on, say something :)
