About Reaching for the Moon

"Reaching for the Moon" is a popular song written by Irving Berlin for the 1930 musical film of the same name. In 1930, United Artists prepared this original music film written by Irving Berlin with his music and lyrics. Director Edmund Goulding and Berlin fought over Goulding's decision to cut most of the songs from the film (due to the temporary disfavor of movie musicals). The film starred Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. and Bebe Daniels. The title song is only used as background music. Titles of the unused Irving Berlin songs are: "It's Yours"; "What a Lucky Break for Me"; "They're Going Down (Brokers' and Customers' Song) - which was rewritten as "Wedding and Crash"; "If You Believe" - a revised version was sung by Johnnie Ray in There's No Business Like Show Business (1954); "The Little Things in Life" - which provided hit records for Gus Arnheim and His Cocoanut Orchestra (vocal by Bing Crosby) on Victor, and Ted Wallace and His Campus Boys (vocal by Dick Dickson) on Columbia; "A Toast to Prohibition"; "You've Gotta Do Right by Me" and "(I Ask You) Is That Nice?"

A pale new moon, a sky of blue
And here am I but where are you?
A dream of love would soon come true
If I could reach the moon and you
The moon and you appear to be
So near and yet so far from me
And here am I on a night in June
Reaching for the moon and you
I wonder if we'll ever meet
My song of love is incomplete
I'm just the words looking for the tune
Reaching for the moon and you
