In the early 1970s, four American ex-patriates in Paris had formed a band
Harvest. But their one hit single was released
after the band
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
Jay Leno.) Then they broke up again. (Though some members of the band
later toured with the Beach Boys.)
All that remains is the
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.
