Louis Armstrongs version of Moon River is the very best! What is it about his husky voice that combines with the dreaminess of the song and makes it seem tremendously perfect?
And the very words …
“HUCKLEBERRY FRIEND” …
I had to look up the definition of a Huckleberry Friend.
Urban Dictionary describes a “Huckleberry Friend” as:
Evokes someone with whom one has a carefree, innocent, hopeful, gentle friendship. Bucolic wanderers and dreamy wonderers. Those with which to share a sun-drenched youth.
Yep … I’ve had a couple of those.
