"Moonlight Feels Right" is the debut single recorded by the American band Starbuck. Written and produced by Bruce Blackman, the song was released in the first week of April 1976. The song features a prominent marimba solo by co-founding band member Bo Wagner.
"Moonlight Feels Right" was a major American hit, reaching number three on the Billboard Hot 100, number two on the Cash Box chart, and number one on Record World. It is ranked as the 34th biggest US hit of the year. On the Canadian chart, the song peaked at number three in early August 1976. It is ranked as the 51st biggest Canadian hit of 1976.
On the American Top 40 radio program of August 14, 1976, Casey Kasem reported the group's difficulties in promoting their single. Over the winter they had hand-delivered the record to 400 radio stations, 95 percent of which had told them they would play it, but did not. One of those stations, WERC in Birmingham, Alabama, told them that it sounded like a spring song to them, so they would play it but would wait until spring to do so. Discouraged, the group re-entered the recording studio. However, WERC kept their promise and became the first to do so, because "Moonlight Feels Right" became a hit immediately following its first airing. The song debuted on the U.S. charts the week ending April 17, 1976, with a chart run of over five months.
Starbuck performed "Moonlight Feels Right" and their follow-up hit, "I Got to Know" on The Midnight Special television program on July 23, 1976 (season 4, episode 37). The show was hosted by The Spinners.
