The Blues

Our latest vintage valve radio restoration, not surprisingly, made me think of all things musically Blue. Starting with the slightly ridiculous but glamorously glorious acapella version of Blue Moon by Mud, complete with platforms and flares.

I moved swiftly on to the sublime Joni Mitchell soulfully singing Blue.

Next came The Who Behind Blue Eyes featuring an arpeggiated acoustic guitar. Linda Rondstat longing for a return to the Blue BayouBob Dylan getting all Tangled Up in Blue and of course how could I forget the legend that is Elvis Presley and his Blue Suede Shoes.  Moving off at something of a complete tangent, came New Order’s Blue Monday mixing it all up with synthesized sound.

I finally ended my playlist with two amazing songs for the price of one and turning full circle. The Lady Sings the Blues herself –  Billie Holiday singing what else but – Blue Moon.
