Hive Open Mic #124 - I thank you Mr Moon πŸŒ™

Background Image

Well, I must say, that this week came around moon lightning fast!
When I picked the theme it was actually full Moon!
Once my video is posted, I will sit back and enjoy all the other entries, that are already coming in to a theme, that I had the honour of choosing!

Swing 42 and this Song

You may already know that I am part of "Swing 42", with @steevc and myself on guitar, @purplesinger on piano and @daniellemurray on clarinet.

This song forms part of our set, which I sing, and as I am learning the keyboard I just couldn't resist the temptation to form my own little swing combo with me playing my Gretsch guitar, which I acquired specifically for the band.

Little did I know that I would struggle to play along to piano student Anke! πŸ˜‚
I meant to sing straight into the mic while playing along to a song I should know so well, but I had to concentrate so much, as Anke, the pianist wasn't very stable on the speed side of things.
So instead I added another voice later on to the recording and adjusted volume levels where desperately required..

However, I had a lot of fun putting this together and hope, you enjoy it!

Thank you, my friends!
I am very happy to be part of this community, it's a lot of fun!
Good luck to everybody!

Lyrics

Most ev'ry night, you shine so bright
You know that lovers need your light
I thank you, Mister Moon
You take two hearts, you tie them tight
If love goes wrong, you make it right
I thank you, Mister Moon

You're the one that keeps the World caressing
Ev'ry beam is like a heaven's blessin'
Tonight's my night, my one big chance
Please help me out, and in advance
I thank you, Mister Moon

The Ankles can form their own band. Of course I know this song very well. Nice to hear your version.

I am! The guitar only gets more playtime because I can take it with me easier.
That bass walking thing I discovered a few weeks back has TOTALLY turned things around!
I feel like I can play along to most things now..
Upwards and onwards! πŸ˜„πŸ˜

A nice and jovial song to the moon, which you interpret with grace in your voice and guitar playing. Interestingly, in Spanish moon (luna) is a feminine noun; it would hardly be called "mister". πŸ˜‰ Greetings, @anna-newkey.

Well, thank you very much for the compliment and the heads up regarding your community! I have signed up and will have a little look around at some stage!

Yes, the moon is indeed female in the roman languages, Spanish, French, and, although, English uses the neutral "the", people refer to the sun with "he" and the moon with "she", so why "Mr. Moon", I have honestly no idea! πŸ˜‚

For me as a German it works, though, because the genders are swapped in German and for me the Moon is male.. haha!
You can't make it up, can you?

Thanks for watching! That's lovely! πŸ˜ƒπŸ™

Anna how are you? this was very nice dear friend, you did a good job, it will always be complicated to synchronize everything, but you got it very well, this is something that is not easily achieved, I certify it!!!!

I liked how you played the keyboard and your voice, and hey how beautiful you look with the hat and playing guitar, good for you πŸŒΉπŸ’–!!!!

I just found out that you have a band with 2 talented artists, I know purplesinger since recently and she is amazing, daniellemurray... I must listen to him, I'm curious πŸ‘πŸ˜‰!!!!

Congratulations dear hostess, I am fascinated with your choice, I love the moon and since I am in the community, I started in week 70, it is the first time we play this theme related to the moon that sincerely, I loved it πŸ™ŒπŸ˜€πŸ’›!!!

You are always welcome Ma'am, your words are so motivating and inspiring. I will consider learning how to play, I just need to get my personal instrument, I love the violin more but I will love to learn as many as I can.

You should play the violin then! I love the violin, but it's probably not the easiest to play and if you want to sing, then a guitar or keyboard or similar to accompany you might be better.
I too play a violin, but rarely, because it needs other people to join me which are not always available. haha
Have a lovely day!

It's fine, I understand you have other engagements offline.

Yes, the violin seems really hard but I just love it and if I'm going to learn how to play then I won't sing too much but that of course is going to take some really good time.

Wow, you play the violin too, that's awesome, you are indeed an instrument lover.
