The original melody for “In The Mood” came from bandleader Wingy Manone's “Tar Paper Stomp.” But the song really took off popularity-wise when Andy Razaf and Joe Garland did their own arrangement.

Under the copyright laws of the time, music could not be protected until it was written down. So if one could emulate a live musician, what was taken in was fair game for for-profit regurgitation. Glenn Miller did however pay off Manone not to contest his orchestra's copyright.
