Back again with the weekly top tens with “My Top Ten Blue Songs”. I was a little surprised to see some of my forever favorite songs include the word “blue” in them, which is my favorite color, by the way.
What are some of your favorite blue songs?
Blue Songs – My Top Ten
Song 1 – “Famous Blue Raincoat” by Leonard Cohen
“Well, I see you there with the rose in your teeth.
One more thin gypsy thief.
Well, I see Jane’s awake –
she sends her regards.”
Song 2 – “Tangled Up In Blue” (Take 3, Remake 2) by Bob Dylan
“She was married when we first met,
soon to be divorced,
I helped her out of a jam, I guess,
but I used a little too much force.”
Song 3 – “Mr. Blue Sky” by Electric Light Orchestra
“Sun is shinin’ in the sky.
There ain’t a cloud in sight.
It’s stopped rainin’ everybody’s in the play.
And don’t you know.
It’s a beautiful new day, hey hey.”
Song 4 – “Pale Blue Eyes” by The Velvet Underground
your pale blue eyes.”
Song 5 – “Blue” by The Jayhawks
“Stood by on believing.
Stood by on my own.
Always thought I was someone.
Turned out I was wrong.”
Song 6 – “Blue Skies” by Ella Fitzgerald
smiling at me.
Nothing but blue skies,
do I see.”
Song 7 – “Blue Jean” by David Bowie
I just met a girl named Blue Jean.
She got a camouflaged face and no money.”
Song 8 – “Blue Kiss” by Jane Wiedlin
“Red lips kissin’ away my fears.
A blue kiss bringin’ me back to tears.
Why does it have to be such a blue kiss?
Yea, these kisses are blue.
Now I color my world with a blue kiss.
I’ve got kisses for you.”
Song 9 – “Blue Highway” by Billy Idol
“You know we’re gonna ride on the blue highway.
Walk with electro-glide on the blue highway.
Wave hello to Christ on my highway.
Yes, I almost died on the blue highway.”
Song 10 – “Blue Orchid” by The White Stripes
“You took a white orchid,
turned it blue.”
