"Moonlight on Water", also known as "Moonlight on Water (Sex on the Beach)", is a popular music song written by Steve Kipner, best known for writing Olivia Newton-John's "Physical", and Andy Goldmark.

The song was originally recorded by Kevin Raleigh for his 1989 album Delusions of Grandeur and was released as a single. It reached #60 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart on 24 June 1989.

Laura Branigan version[edit]

The song was covered by Laura Branigan and was the first single taken from her self-titled album released in 1990. The song was only a minor hit in the U.S., where a sexy music video for the song received little airplay. Branigan can be seen performing the song on her second videocassette and laserdisc concert release, Laura Branigan in Concert, filmed in 1990 at a tour stop in Atlantic City and initially televised as part of the syndicated TV series SRO: In Concert.
