The Moon of Manakoora

The Moon of Manakoora” was written by Frank Loesser (lyrics) and Alfred Newman (music) for the 1937 Paramount film The Hurricane starring Dorothy Lamour — who sang the song in the film and recorded it.

The song has been recorded by many artists, both vocally and as an instrumental. The Ventures concluded their 1961 album “The Ventures” with a version. My instrumental arrangement, while firmly in the 1960s guitar-rock style, is completely different from the Ventures version.
