Hi, I’m Matt Hanley, a New York songwriter. You may know me for “Horse Walks into a Bar (Why the Long Face)” , or for hosting a Times Square talk show, or for producing the world’s first-ever disco dramedy, “To Be With You.” This website offers videos, a virtual jukebox and meta-data about each of my tunes. It also features musings of mine, and breakdowns of dances, comedy routines and more ; often of a NON-MH provenance !
