"Theme from Picnic" is a popular song, originated in the 1955 movie Picnic, starring Kim Novak and William Holden, which was based on the play of the same name. The song is often referred to simply as "Picnic."
Many of the popular versions of the song in 1956 were medleys of the song with "Moonglow", though a recording of the song alone by The McGuire Sisters was also a hit, peaking at number thirteen on the Top 100 and number fifteen on the Best Seller charts. One of the medleys was done by Morris Stoloff and the Columbia Pictures Orchestra, and another by George Cates and his Orchestra, which was also a major hit of that year.
Andy Williams released a version of the song on his 1956 album, Andy Williams Sings Steve Allen. Harry James recorded a version on his 1979 album Still Harry After All These Years (Sheffield Lab LAB-11).
