Henry Mancini liked 3/4 time. Many of his greatest hits were written in it, such as Moon River, Charade, Dear Heart, and The Sweetheart Tree. It makes me wonder if when he was a little kid, his parents waltzed around the living room. And, he wrote this wonderful song in 3/4 time, one of my favorites, from the musical Darling Lili and introduced by Julie Andrews, with very touching lyrics by Johnny Mercer,  it is: Whistling Away The Dark
