In the Mood
In the Mood là một bản nhạc jazz được phổ biến bởi nhạc sĩ nhạc swing và jazz Mỹ Glenn Miller. Đây được coi như một trong những bản nhạc nổi tiếng nhất trong thời kỳ big band, thời những "ban nhạc lớn" của những năm 1930 và 1940.
Bản nhạc mở đầu với bài dạo saxophone, nay đã trở thành bất hủ, được nối tiếp bởi dàn kèn trumpet và trombone sau 13 nhịp.
The song, a twelve-bar blues, was composed by Eric DeWebber (Joseph C. Garland) and Andy Razaf, and arranged by Eddie Durham. The main theme previously appeared under the title of "Tar Paper Stomp", credited to jazz trumpeter/bandleader Wingy Manone, who recorded it several times in 1929 and 1930. A story says that after "In the Mood" became a hit, Manone was paid by Miller and his record company not to contest the copyright.
Other notable big band artists who recorded the song include the Andrews Sisters, Xavier Cugat, Tommy Dorsey, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and The Brian Setzer Orchestra.
Non-big band renditions were recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis, John Lee Hooker, Chet Atkins, Bill Haley & His Comets, and Ernie Fields Jr., Bad Manners. The song was charted at number 16 in 1953 with Johnny Maddox. Jonathan King scored a UK Top 50 hit with his version of the song in 1976. Bette Midler also recorded this song in 1973 (on the album Bette Midler).
A verson of the song was recorded by country/novelty artist Ray Stevens in 1977. Stevens' version consisted of him performing the song in chicken clucks, and was credited to the "Henhouse Five Plus Two".
