Tough decision with this matchup.
I love both these songs. Of the two though Dancing in the Moonlight is
more of the kind of music I loved in my mid teen years, and the kind of
music that I built my personal tastes around. ... HOWEVER

When I first met my wife, and the lady I am now happily married to for 21 years
I had this song playing on a cassette when we took our first drive together.
She fell in love with it and we've sort of adopted this as "our song".

Gotta go with "Our Song" here even though I love King Harvest doing
Dancing In The Moonlight.

Well with that backstory you had well better go with Jeff Healey Band :thumbsup:

I'll vote King Harvest to counterbalance :woo:

I will go with the star of Road House ftw! Guilty pleasure movie ranked #1 all time.

Blind Jeff Healy singing about how fine a woman looks tonight...good stuff.

I've got to be honest, I've never even heard Angel Eyes before. I gave it a listen and liked it OK, but I've still got to go with Dancing in the Moonlight. I've heard the song a million times, and for a one hit wonder, I think being able to stand the test of time and still get radio play like that is a really big factor. Plus I love the Wurlitzer throughout the song.

I gotta agree with you, Spurt. My ex and I had two songs, Angel Eyes and More Than Words (Extreme). I prefer AE!

Somehow or another the album cover for Moonlight doesn't seem to fit the song. :rotfl:
