Seems to me most of the music leaned toward David's "funk" tastes. I mean Maddie didn't have Frank or Tony in her living room; all she got was a shattered mirror. # There's a great Sinatra recording, something about "three o'clock on the morning and the whole wide world is fast asleep..." Then there's a line about "when a lonely heart has learned it's lesson..." This seems like Maddie Music. # I've got ellipsis fever...
It IS "In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning". These are the lyrics to Frank Sinatra's version:
In the wee small hours of the morning, While the whole wide world is fast asleep, You lie awake and think about the girl And never, ever think of counting sheep.
When your lonely heart has learned its lesson, You'd be hers if only she would call, In the wee small hours of the morning, That's the time you miss her most of all.
That's it, they don't write 'em like that anymore. I knew there was a "shipper" lurking here A song that came after the show (I think) That had lyrics like "Wrapped around each other, trying hard to stay warm... I was your hero, and you were my leading lady... Here's looking at you kid... We were like Bogie and Bacall, sailing away to Key Largo." # Of course they'd have to get David and Maddie into a meat locker or something. But I could hear some of this on the soundtrack. Sheesh, wee small hours do make a guy sappy.
The song you were quoting lyrics from rsteele (and btw welcome to the boards) is called Key Largo by Bertie Higgins. It definitely pre-dates ML as it came out about 1979/1980ish. You're right though, it does have a David and Maddie vibe!
Moonlight becomes y'all, it goes with your hair... I suppose the best Maddie and David song on the soundtrack was the oldie at the end of one of the most gossip inducing eps, when a soaked David goes to Maddies place (with a small bouquet) to set things right, and "Sam" opens the door. ...You took my love and now you're gone, Since I Fell For You.

You're right - I can't imagine that scene in the rain with any other song playing behind it.
The song I associate with Maddie is the one that played while she got dressed to confront Ron Sawyer in Buenos Aires - You Wear It Well by DeBarge! It really doesn't fit her personality. It's sooooo 80s and she's much more of a timeless classic type, but I just can't hear that song without thinking of it as a tribute to Maddie.

I can think of at least 4 appropriate "Maddie" songs: In "The Next Murder You Hear", Linda Ronstadt's version of "Ooo Baby Baby" plus the theme from Taxi Driver (while Maddie is driving around at night in L.A.); in another episode (I can't recall which one) "Stormy Weather", and in one of the Sam episodes, "Someone To Watch Over Me".
