Members
 
Chris Arnold - vocals
David Martin
Geoff Morrow
 
Formed in London.
The Moonlighters were a studio group made up of songwriters and frequent collaborators Chris Arnold, David Martin and Geoff Morrow. They came up with the name The Moonlighters because they believed they were songwriters moonlighting as recording artists and also they all had regular jobs at that time.
They wrote both sides of their only single.
Later they would write for artists like Barry Manilow and Elvis Presley.
They eventually made the charts themselves under the group name Butterscotch.
