King’s Harvest is a band best-known for their 1972 single, “Dancing In the Moonlight”. It went to #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts and is a great song that almost everyone has heard of due to its inclusion in TV shows and movies even now, over 40 years later.
I posted my acoustic cover version of “Dancing In the Moonlight” in the summer of 2009, just prior to getting married and moving into our new house. It’s incredible that this was over six years ago now! But, that’s the beauty of the internet- nothing gets “old” and these videos can still be found (and hopefully enjoyed) all these years later.
So, imagine my surprise when I got a notification that King’s Harvest themselves, that’s right- the band that recorded the hit version, subscribed to my channel and commented on my video! Here’s the comment:
“Good job Jim. Nice vocal.”
Short and sweet. But, it’s very appreciated, for sure. I don’t think there’s anything better than getting a comment from the original artist on my cover songs- it’s just about the best compliment a cover song musician can get, don’t you think?
Now, if you haven’t seen my cover version (or just want to refresh your memory), then check out the video below. And thanks again to King’s Harvest for watching, and liking, my cover of their classic tune!
