Everyone's Gone To The Moon

Album: Everyone's Gone To The Moon (1965)
Charted: 4 17
  • Streets full of people, all alone
    Roads full of houses, never home
    Church full of singing, out of tune
    Everyone's gone to the moon

    Eyes full of sorrow, never wet
    Hands full of money, all in debt
    Sun coming out in the middle of June
    Everyone's gone to the moon

    Long time ago
    Life had begun
    Everyone went to the sun

    Cars full of motors, painted green
    Mouths full of chocolate-covered cream
    Arms that can only lift a spoon
    Everyone's gone to the moon

    Everyone's gone to the moon
    Everyone's gone to the moon Writer/s: KENNETH KING

  • Stephanie L Giron from Pearl City, Hawaii Everyone's gone to the moon is the theme song for movie
    In the shadow of the moon, which was a terrific movie....worth watching. Worth talking about.
  • Tito from PhilippinesThis is a very distinctly melodious n likeably memorable song.

    M 65 yo n I must have heard it first when I was growing up the Pampanga province.

    M also pleasantly surprised why I always enjoyed listening to it over n over whether by JK or Chad n Jeremy — who else?

    M curious if JK will sing it again himself, have it rearranged n sung by current singers.

    If successful, JK May donate profits for a home for “genitally” — I don’t sacred word “sexually” for such acts — abused youth in the Philippines.

    This endeavour will not be late to make amends for personal mistakes — professional image plus spiritual redemption will come if JK believes. God bless
  • John from Galesburg IlI am 75, and always loved this song. As admiror of real music, this song is a standout. The orchestra sounds are highly moody which coincides with the effects with the lunar effects of everything on earth, moods, of humans, animals, tides, planting fishing etc. I am still thinking of the meaning of the lyrics, only he would know. Such a beautiful voice, a highly gifted young man. Wish I knew more about the orchestra,and the singers thoughts at that time.
  • Lawrence from Beverly Hills, CaGreat song.. I agree. I was disappointed to see that King was convicted of multiple child molestations and spent time in prison.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyKing must have loved heavenly bodies; in this, his first charted record, he sings about the 'moon' and in his second charted record it's the 'sun'; that was "Where the Sun Has Never Shone", it peaked at No. 97!!! {He only had two records to make the Top 100}
  • Camille from Toronto, OhNicely put Chet, a one-of-a-kind song. Seems odd that I would have only been 7 years old when this came out but I remember always liking it and yet at such a young age realizing it had that melancholy sound to it. Even now I hear it and for some reason it makes me sad. But I still like it.
  • John from Wirral, United KingdomI am sixtyish great track always remembered by my 3 Daughters they say life is what you make it.Sad what went on but wat the hell follow the moon.
  • Ernie from Seattle, WaMichelle,MN ------one of my old favorites too.
  • Michelle from Minneapolis, MnI'm only 30, but I remember this song from when I was a girl. We'd spend Saturday nights listening to Solid Gold Saturday Night and playing poker. It was such a beautiful mystical song. After not hearing for 25 years, it was such a blessing to hear it again.

  • Chet from Buffalo, NyA great, one-of-a-kind song.
  • Ellen from New York, AzIn November 1965 we had the gigantic east coast black out. Evryone laughed when this song came on the radio: "Everyone's gone to the Moon". It was just so right for that dark evening. I cannot believe how long ago that was; to me it still seems like yesterday.
