From MICHAEL BUBLE’
Written by Van Morrison

At the dawn of the new millennium, the one-two punch of Josh Groban and Michael Bublè brought David Foster to the frontline again as the absolute king of adult pop. With the expert help of the Canadian super-producer, both these mega-talented artists sold millions of copies of their releases capturing the hearts of music lovers worldwide. Michael Bublé’s velvety voice quickly earned the Burnaby-born singer the well deserved title of “new Sinatra.” His self-titled debut album was released February 2003. It includes some Sinatra standards like the swinging “Come Fly With Me,” and “Summer Wind,” plus gorgeous ballads like “The Way You Look Tonight” and “That’s All.” Bublé’s version of “Sway,” originally brought to fame by Dean Martin in 1954, has been heard time and again at ice skating and dancing competitions over the last few years. Bublè shines on all these moments with absolute class and style showing how he lives and breathes this timeless music. Foster also cleverly mined the pop charts of the seventies and the eighties to give this record an original twist. Among the more recent pop songs are Queen’s “Crazy Little Thing Called Love,” George Michael’s “Kissing A Fool” and Lou Rawls’ “You’ll Never Find (Another Love Like Mine),” all perfectly performed by Bublè and tastefully arranged by Foster with the help of luminaries like Johnny Mandel, Bill Holman and Mike Melvoin. Another gorgeous moment on the album is “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart.” The Bee Gees evergreen gets the magical Bublè/Foster treatment with Barry Gibb’s guest appearance putting the icing on the cake. The swinging remake of Van Morrison’s “Moondance” was the hit off the album. Its original arrangement by Foster and John Clayton was the perfect match to the singer’s outstanding vocal performance. “Michael Bublè” finally brought some quality pop music back on the radio and on the charts worldwide.

Lyrics

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

Can I just have one a’ more moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love

Well I wanna make love to you tonight
I can’t wait till the morning has come
And I know now the time is just right
And straight into my arms you will run
And when you come my heart will be waiting
To make sure you’re never alone
There and then all my dreams will come true, dear
There and then I will make you my own
And everytime I touch you, you just tremble inside
And I know how much you want me that you can’t hide

Can I just have one a’ more moondance with you, my love
Can I just make some more romance with a-you, my love

Well, it’s a marvelous night for a moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
‘Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I’m trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night’s magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush

One more moondance with you in the moonlight
Can’t I just have one more dance with you my love
