"Livin' in the Sunlight, Lovin' in the Moonlight" is a popular song that was written by Al Sherman and Al Lewis for the 1930 film, The Big Pond starring Maurice Chevalier. The song was also sung by Chevalier who made it famous. Chevalier enjoyed his first American hit with this song. On March 22, 1930 Bing Crosby and the Paul Whiteman Orchestra recorded a popular cover of this song as well.

In 1968, Tiny Tim sang a cover of this song. This unusual ukulele version of the song was used in the first SpongeBob SquarePants episode, "Help Wanted." In January 2008, American Idol contestant Sarah Whitaker auditioned with the song. Valve Corporation originally considered using Tiny Tim's version of the song in the Meet the Pyro trailer for the class based multiplayer game Team Fortress 2, though ultimately went with "Do You Believe in Magic" by The Lovin' Spoonful[citation needed].
