Shadows of the night that poets find beguiling seemed flat as the noon light. Composed as a ballad in 1934 by Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart, this song has become famous by the chorus "Blue Moon you left me standing alone. Without a dream in my heart. Without a love of my own." The most successful version was the Doo-Wop version by the Marcels in 1961. Richard Rodgers hated that version and took out ads to ask people not to buy it. Although found in several films such as "Words And Music" (1948); "Malaya" (1949); "East Side, West Side" (1950); and "With A Song In My Heart" (1952) it was not written for any particular show or film by Rodgers and Hart.
