Moon River (∞ Climax Mix) is one of the main themes from Bayonetta 2 alongside Tomorrow Is Mine. It succeeds the role of Fly Me To The Moon (∞ Climax Mix) from the first game.

It is a remix of the classic standard Moon River, which was first recorded by Audrey Hepburn for the film Breakfast at Tiffany's in 1961. It was originally composed by Henry Mancini with lyrics by Johnny Mercer. The 'Climax Mix' version was performed by Keeley Bumford.

Bayonetta 2[]

The song first plays in the game's prologue during Bayonetta's introduction. It later plays during the game's climax when Jeanne summons Gomorrah to consume Aesir. An instrumental version of the 'Climax Mix' also plays during the opening tutorial.

A recording of the song by Andy Williams off his 1962 LP, Moon River & Other Great Movie Themes, plays during the game's credits. On the Bayonetta 2 Original Soundtrack, the 'Climax Mix' is track 13 of disc 1, and the Andy Williams recording is track 29 of disc 5. The instrumental version is not included in the soundtrack.

Lyrics[]

Moon river,
Wider than a mile
I'm crossing you in style some day
Oh dream maker,
You heartbreaker
Wherever you're going, I'm going your way

Two drifters,
Off to see the world
There's such a lot of world to see
We're after the same rainbow's end,
Waiting round the bend
My Huckleberry friend, Moon River, and me

  • Keeley Bumford also provides vocals for Theme of Bayonetta 2 - Tomorrow Is Mine.
  • Both versions of Moon River are not included in streaming releases of the Bayonetta 2 Original Soundtrack, likely due to licensing issues.
