Moving On

Album: Still Got That Hunger (2015)


  • The first single from The Zombies album Still Got That Hunger, "Moving On" was written by their keyboard player, founding member Rod Argent. He explained: "I actually started this song in 1977 when I wrote one couplet on hearing of Elvis' death. For some reason it has stayed in my mind all these years, although it's no longer about Elvis. When I was writing material for this record for some reason I couldn't get that couplet out of my mind. And I developed the whole song lyrically and musically."
  • A music video was made for this song using footage from one of the Zombies New York concerts in 2015."What I like about this video is that it captures a typical day in our life on tour in America," Argent said. "And particularly where we first played, New York, which we still love so many years later."
