Song: Theme From Picnic
Christine, Phyllis and Dorothy - The McGuire Sisters - hit No. 13 in 1956 with HAL`S THEME (From Picnic), a vocal adaptation of the familiar title melody from the film which starred Kim Novak. TV personality Steve Allen came up with the lyrics after the movie had already been released. In the same year, bandleaders Morris Stoloff and George Cates each issued Top 5 instrumental medleys of the (Theme From) PICNIC interpolated with another soundtrack song, "Moonglow," as used on the soundtrack of the film classic.
