"Talking To The Moon" lyrics

Bruno Mars Lyrics

"Talking To The Moon"

I know you're somewhere out there
Somewhere far away
I want you back
I want you back

My neighbors think I'm crazy
But they don't understand
You're all I had
You're all I had

At night when the stars light up my room
I sit by myself talking to the moon
Tryna get to you
In hopes you're on the other side talking to me too
Or am I a fool who sits alone talking to the moon?

I'm feeling like I'm famous
The talk of the town
They say I've gone mad
Yeah, I've gone mad

But they don't know what I know
'Cause when the sun goes down
Someone's talking back
Yeah, they're talking back

At night when the stars light up my room
I sit by myself talking to the moon
Tryna get to you
In hopes you're on the other side talking to me too
Or am I a fool who sits alone talking to the moon?

Do you ever hear me calling?

'Cause every night I'm talking to the moon
Still tryna get to you
In hopes you're on the other side talking to me too
Or am I a fool who sits alone talking to the moon?

I know you're somewhere out there
Somewhere far away

Lyrics for The Whole Of The Moon

I pictured a rainbow

you held it in your hands

I had flashes

but you saw the plan

I wandered out in

the world for years

while you just

stayed in your room

I saw the crescent

you saw

the whole of the moon

the whole of the moon

Mmm, you were

there at the turnstiles

with the wind at your heels

you stretched for the stars

and you know how it feels

To reach too high

too far

too soon

you saw

the whole of the moon

I was grounded

while you filled the skies

I was dumbfounded by truth

you cut through lies

I saw the rain-dirty valley

you saw brigadoon

I saw the crescent

you saw

the whole of the moon

I spoke about wings

you just flew

I wondered

I guessed and I tried

you just knew

I sighed

and you swooned

I... saw the crescent

you saw

the whole of the moon

the whole of the moon

With a torch in your pocket

and the wind at your heels

you climbed on the ladder

and you know how it feels

To get too high

too far

too soon

you saw

the whole of the moon

the whole of the moon

Unicorns and cannonballs

palaces and piers

trumpets, towers

and tenements

wide oceans full of tears

Flags, rags, ferry boats

scimitars and scarves

every precious

dream and vision

underneath the stars

Yes, you

climbed on the ladder

with the wind in your sails

you came like a comet

blazing your trail

Too high

too far

too soon

you saw

the whole of the moon

Oh-oh-oh

did you see

the whole of the moon...

"Shine On Harvest Moon" Celebrates 100 Years

Shine on Harvest Moon is one of the those great Tin Pan Alley Moon songs that were so popular in the first part of the 20th century, such as By the Light of the Silvery Moon, I want to spoon....

And the most popularized of all Moon songs

The song first made its claim to fame when Nora Bayes and Jack Norworth appeared in the elaborate Broadway theatrical production of the Follies, which opened in New York City on June 15, 1908. And, Oh, Shine On, Shine On, Harvest Moon was an instant overnight hit. It's interesting to note that the first version of this song's chorus actually was written: Since April, January, June or July, not January, February, June or July. Many have recorded this song since. Ruth Etting sang this in the Ziegfeld Follies of 1931 with her own twist, with the chorus changed to January, February, June or July and the first and last verse were removed.

Oliver Hardy put his own little twist into the song with reference to the earlier version of April, January, June or July. In Oliver Hardy style of course! April, January, June or July turns to January, April, June or July. You can hear an MP3 rendition of Oliver Hardy singing his version of "Shine on Harvest Moon", which he recorded in 1939 for the film Flying Deuces by clicking on the cover of the Ziegfeld Follies sheet music below. (The original sheet music of this song is owned by Paul McCartney today.)

Listen to Oliver Hardy

Cover from Shine On Harvest Moon (Norworth, Bayes) (from Ziegfeld Follies) 1931

Shine On Harvest Moon

The night was mighty dark so you could hardly see,
For the moon refused to shine.
Couple sitting underneath a willow tree,
For love they did pine.
Little maid was kind-a 'fraid of darkness, so
She said, "I guess I'll go."
Boy began to sigh, looked up at the sky,
And told the moon his little tale of woe.

Oh, Shine on, shine on harvest moon, up in the sky;
I ain't had no lovin' since April, January, June or July.
Snow time ain't no time to stay outdoors and spoon,
So shine on, shine on harvest moon, for me and my gal.

Oh, can't see why a boy should sigh, where by his side
Is the girl he loves so true.
All he has to say is: "Won't you be my bride,
For I love you"
Why should I be telling you this secret,
When I know that you can guess?
Harvest moon will smile, shine on all the while,
If the little girl should answer "yes."

(repeat chorus)

Talking to the Moon

2011 single by Bruno Mars

For other uses, see Talking to the Moon (disambiguation).

2011 single by Bruno Mars

"Talking to the Moon" is a song by American singer-songwriter Bruno Mars from his debut studio album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans (2010). The song was first unveiled on Mars's debut extended play, It's Better If You Don't Understand (2010), as its last track. It was written by Mars, Philip Lawrence, Ari Levine, Albert Winkler, and Jeff Bhasker, while production was handled by the Smeezingtons in collaboration with Bhasker. "Talking to the Moon" is a pop and R&Bpower ballad about a failed relationship, solitude, and sadness. Instrumentally, the track relies on drum percussion and piano.

"Talking to the Moon" received mixed reviews from music critics. Some praised its slow pace and lyrics, while others criticized its overwhelming production. The song was announced as a single only in Brazil, on April 12, 2011, through Warner Music Brasil, following its appearance on the soundtrack of the Brazilian telenovelaInsensato Coração (2011). The song charted on the Brasil Hot 100 Airplay, where it spent several weeks at number one, and on the Billboard Brasil Hot Pop & Popular. It was certified twice platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). It was performed during Mars's debut world tour, The Doo-Wops & Hooligans Tour (2010–2012), on the Hooligans in Wondaland Tour (2011) and during a show on the South American leg of the 24K Magic World Tour (2017–2018).

Background and production[edit]

"Talking to the Moon" was first recorded by Bruno Mars for his debut EP, It's Better If You Don't Understand, which was released on May 11, 2010 under Elektra Records.[1] When asked about the lyrical content of the record, Mars stated that "[he] just [writes] songs that [he] strongly believe in and that are coming from inside. There's no tricks. It's honesty with big melodies. And [he is] singing the s*** out of them."[1] During an interview, Mars explained that after writing and producing songs for other artists, he thought that he could write a song for himself. He started writing the lyrics of "Talking to the Moon" while playing the piano.[2] The track was included five months later on his debut studio album, Doo-Wops & Hooligans, released on October 4, 2010 under the Elektra and Atlantic labels.[3] Mars also recorded an acoustic piano version included on the deluxe edition of the album.[4] Ari Levine described how the song was conceived in an interview for Sound on Sound:[5]

We only had the first verse and the horns. We then had three different bridges and we spent a lot of time trying to find out which one was the best. Jeff Bhasker is a fantastic musician, and he helped write that track. I think we tried to arrange and produce this in four different ways, mostly trying to figure out what kind of drums to put on.

"Talking to the Moon" was written by Mars, Philip Lawrence, Levine, Bhasker, and Albert Winkler, and produced by the former three, under their alias, the Smeezingtons, while Bhasker co-produced the song. Levine and Mars played all the instruments on the track and recorded them; Levine was as well responsible for engineering the song at Levcon Studios in California. The mixing of the track was done at Larrabee Sound Studios in Los Angeles by Manny Marroquin, with Christian Plata and Erik Madrid serving as assistants. It was mastered by Stephen Marcussen at Marcussen Mastering in Hollywood, California.[6]

Composition[edit]

"Talking to the Moon"

A 20-second sample of the song in which Mars sings "In hopes you're on the other side talking to me too/ Or am I a fool who sits alone talking to the moon?/Ohoooo...".

"Talking to the Moon" is a "soaring" pop and R&Bpower ballad.[7][8][9] It has a stripped-down production, and instrumentation consisting primarily of drums and a piano.[10] According to the digital sheet music, the song was written in the key of C♯ minor and was set in a four-fourtime signature with a ballad tempo of 73 beats per minute. Mars's vocal range spans from G♯3 to C♯5, and the song follows the chord progression E–G♯7–C♯m–B–A.[11] Natalie Li from The Harvard Crimson felt the song has an "electro twist".[9] Sasha Frere-Jones wrote for The New Yorker that the single relies on a "gorgeous wall of backing harmony".[12]

The song's lyrics describe feelings of loneliness, loss, and hope in the chorus: "Talking to the moon/Try to get to you/In hopes you're on the other side/Talking to me, too".[10] As the song continues, it shows the singer's vulnerable side with soft, sincere lyrics about a lost love that has now gone, according to Alex Young of Consequence of Sound.[13]Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Scott Mervis described Mars's vocals on the track as "yearning".[8] Sherri Thornhill of Yahoo!, believed the lyrics reveal the singer's hope that "his former flame is talking to the moon just as he is."[14] A similar opinion was shared by Seattle Post-Intelligencer's Tyrone Reid, noticing Mars "waxing poetic about love and longing".[15]

Critical reception[edit]

The song received mixed reviews from music critics. Alex Young of Consequence of Sound gave the song a positive review writing that the song "may be the best of this collection [album]", adding that "this track is primed for radio; a soft, sincere piano-driven song about a lost love that has now gone [...] belts the vulnerable Mars."[13]Yahoo!'s music critic, Sherri Thornhill, praised the song, calling it a "beauty" and "relatable", since the lyrics show the "heartbroken lover['s]" wish that his former lover is doing the same as he is – talking to the moon.[14] The Seattle Post-Intelligencer's reviewer, Tyrone S. Reid, considered the song "beautifully written, waxing poetic about love and longing – a forte that the singer employs with great results in his work."[15] Leah Greenblatt of Entertainment Weekly called "Talking to the Moon" "woebegone", adding that "a malt-shop heart beats beneath [its] digital skin".[16] Emily Yang of The Signal stated that Mars "focuses on the slow pace of the drums and piano to convey his sorrow. He sings of loneliness which is almost palpable in the chorus."[10]

On the other hand, Bill Lamb of About.com wrote that it "is possibly the weakest track simply because the heavy production threatens to overwhelm the centerpiece of Bruno Mars' singing because it is a big power jazz ballad that would work well from the stage."[17] In the same vein, Mike Diver of BBC Music considered the song "a ballad devoid of detectable emotion".[18] The same perspective was replicated by Jamie Milton from musicOMH, who called it a "over-sentimental ballad".[19]The Scotsman compared "Talking to the Moon" to the "Gary Barlow stirring-yet-banal mould", dubbing it "a slowed-down, doleful version of "Billionaire" (2011).[7]
