Moon River

The crooner synonymous with one of the greatest movie songs of all time, Andy Williams died this week at the age of 84.  Moon River is of course featured in Breakfast at Tiffany’s surely one of the most amazing movies ever.

Originally featured in the film in 1961, Andy Williams made the song his own at the Academy Awards in 1962 and it was associated with him for ever more.

Moon River is one of those easy to forget but ever green songs that I love listening to on my iPod or while I’m making dinner.  I played it once while one of my best friends visited and she was shocked that I love it as and I was equally surprised to discover it was her all time favourite song.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s is easily one of Audrey Hepburn’s greatest hits.  Time to get the old box set out…
