It's..... The happiest blog on earth

In the early 1970s, four American ex-patriates in Paris had formed a band called King Harvest. But their one hit single was released after the band broke up...

It reached #13 on the U.S. charts in 1972, and stayed on the charts longer than any other song that year (except one). The band re-united for their first -- and last -- American tour. (Their opening act was a young stand-up comic named Jay Leno.) Then they broke up again. (Though some members of the band later toured with the Beach Boys.)

All that remains is the song.

Dancing in the moonlight,
Everybody's feeling warm and bright.
It's such a fine and natural sight

Everybody's dancing in the moonlight...

I had no idea it was recorded in Paris.
