Biographie

Art Mooney (4 February 1911, Brooklyn, New York, USA – 1993, Florida, USA)

Art Mooney was an American popular bandleader. His biggest hits were “I’m Looking Over a Four

Leaf Clover” and “Baby Face” in 1948 and “Nuttin’ For Christmas,” with Barry Gordon, in 1955. His fourth million selling song “Honey Babe” (1955) was used in the motion picture, “Battle Cry,” having reached the Top 10 in the United States.

He also made a very popular 1948 recording of “Bluebird of Happiness”, but it could not compete with Jan Peerce’s best-selling 1945 version.
Mooney’s name, as well as his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, was prominently featured in the motion picture The Adventures of Ford Fairlane.
