Music Diary Songs of Note: In a Sentimental Mood

Have you ever just had a song come on and you and your spouse/boyfriend/girlfriend/significant other just start dancing? Last night the song Skywriting by a never popular British group ‘The Bible’ came on my wife’s iPod, and we had a nice little dance … to the amusement and embarrassment of our kids.

I makes me think back to one of my favorite moments from The Cosby Show – at the end of an episode, Cliff drops a record on the turntable (look it up, kiddies), and on comes a gorgeous song and then he and Claire begin playful snuggling and snacking as the music plays in the background. That song is In A Sentimental Mood, from Duke Ellington & John Coltrane.

Here is a great clip from The Cosby Show that starts in the middle of where the song was used:
