Cat Stevens had a big hit with his version of "Morning Has Broken". Often attributed to him it is an old hymn that goes way back. Interesting trivia about his version I only learned lately: the piano part was played by Rick Wakeman. A rather unlikely duo at the time!

Never heard Morning Dew by Beck and Stewart, just dozens of versions by the Dead, all of them absolutely wonderful. Actually I recall hearing the original once... it's by a female folksinger. The song I believe was originally written about post-atomic bomb fallout, hence "I can't walk you out in the morning dew today..."

I've got a "Morning Dew" by Duane And Greg Allman. It is on an album entitled "Duane and Greg". There is not a date on it and is from an out of business label from Miami.

Greg sounds geat, this was way before Cher and cocaine.

Duane gets in a great solo.

What was that song from The Poseidon Adventure? There's Got to be a Morning After...? Who sang that?

The song was titled The Morning After and was sung by Maureen McGovern.

The, um, title of this thread is "Great songs with the word "morning" in the title". Now, I'll be the first to concede that the meaning of the term "great" is at least murky & likely always subjective, but really, "There's Got To Be A Morning After" ... a great song? :D

*Full Disclosure: I knew Joel Hirschhorn, one of the writers of this song (and many, many more). It was Joel's opinion that "There's Got To Be A Morning After" was, in fact, a great song. So who am I to argue with success?

From the Album "Gettin' Lucky"

+1. Took me a while to warm up to Gettin' Lucky. Liked other albums by Head East much better. But listening to the CD that combined Gettin' Lucky and Head East (the highway sign album) and really got into Gettin' Lucky.

There must be a blues standard called s.t. like "Morning Blues". Scour the Skip James & Charly Patton discogs for it. In the same vein, I wouldn't be a bit surprised to discover s.t. like "Morning, Baby" among the Chicago School of bluesmen, Buddy, Muddy and Otis in particular.
