Looking for a song/artists name

I am looking for the artist of a song called “Over the Moon”. I think it was Cathy and the … Not the Showaddywaddy version. Hope you can help me. If this is of any help – a part of the lyrics are “I’ll take you over the moon, through a lagoon”.

Thank you for your time and trouble, I appreciate it.

Best wishes,

Are you maybe thinking of ‘Over The Moon’ by Cathy Lee and the Coins from 1978?

BTW The Showaddywaddy song was called ‘Under The Moon Of Love’ (big hit in 1976) and was a cover of a Curtis Lee song from 1960.


Playlist Creator & Web Marketer. The son of a church organist father and pianist mother, South African born Brian Currin grew up surrounded by music. In his pre-teen years he realised that he had no real talent for playing music and he couldn't sing, so he immersed himself in the world of music by listening, exploring and researching. Which he still does today. He served in the military for five years, then spent many years in corporate sales and marketing until his involvement in the re-discovery of Rodriguez, opened up a whole new world for him. He was the Content Editor for Rhythm Online, South Africa's first online music store, from 2006 to 2012. He ran Mabu Vinyl, the iconic music store seen in the Oscar-winning "Searching For Sugar Man" film from 2013 to 2019. His voice could be heard on the streaming radio station All Jazz Radio where he hosted the Vagabond Show from 2012 to 2019. He is very involved in promoting South African music, and is the co-owner of a number of music-related websites including which he founded in 1999.
